For All-American Award
Halfback Carver Shannon has been nominated for the 1958 All American team.
The speedy senior from Corinth, Miss., made the select list sent out by the Football Writers Association of America. An all-star team selected D the writers will be announced sometime after Nov. 11.
Shannon returned to the SIU lineup last weekend Nov. 1) and promptly shattered Washington and Lee defenses as he set up two touchdowns with long, spiraling runs. The fleet halfback has been out of action since the third game of the
season with a badly swollen ankle.
Shannon's performance against the Generals, 96 yards on 10 carries, boasted him to the second spot in the Saluki rushing standings. He now has a 6.5 yard average per carry for 38 trips and is fourth among SIU scorers with 20 points.
Coach Al Kuwal is counting on his speedster to be ready for Southern's return in Interstate conference action Saturday (Nov. 8) at Central Michigan. Shannon and the Salukis will be looking for their first win against the league-leading Chippewas at Mt. Pleasent.
