Shoemaker also possesses a high level of toughness. He jammed his ankle earlier this season when sliding into a base, but only missed a few games.
He inherited that toughness from his dad Brian, a former wrestler at Indiana State, and his days on the gridiron at Northview High School in Brazil, Ind.
“Football was always fun,” Shoemaker said. “I always liked the contact.”
UPDATE: FS has more.
