Shanle brothers among 2020 Eight-Man Hall of Fame inductees announced

Eleven players and three coaches are part of the Nebraska Eight-Man Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame Class of 2020. Induction ceremonies for the new class will be held at halftime of the 43rd annual Sertoma Eight-Man All-Star Game to be played at Hastings College Saturday, June 20. Kickoff will be at 6 p.m.
This will be the fourth class inducted into the eight-man football hall of fame, bringing the total number of inductees to 63.
While several names in this year’s list of inductees will be familiar to Husker fans around the state and nation, two of the former players being honored will be especially notable to Albion News area fans.
St. Edward natives and brothers Scott and Andrew Shanle – Beaver all-staters, Huskers and NFL performers – are among the 14 2020 inductees announced January 10.
Scott Shanle was twice named to the Eight-Man All-State team after rushing for 2,082 yards and 44 touchdowns as a senior, and 1,984 yards and 33 TDs as a junior. Shanle was named the eight-man all-star game MVP following his senior season and went on to become a starter for both the Nebraska Huskers and the NFL’s New Orleans Saints, recording more than 100 tackles during the Saints’ 2009 Super Bowl championship season.
Andrew Shanle was the eight-man all-state quarterback in his junior season of high school and an all-state defensive back following his senior season. Andrew was a part of the 2002 eight-man all-star game, later started at safety for the Huskers, and won a Super Bowl ring with the New York Giants in 2007.
