This right handed quarterback has very good arm strength to squeeze it in the window also had touch on several passes from the pocket or on the move. His mobility was very good despite wearing a knee brace and showed mental toughness to play at a high level despite injury.  Shaw displayed leadership, courage and the will to win with his performance that very few will ever forget.  A very poised quarterback in the pocket, stood tall under pressure with confidence.  He has good foot work and set up quickness with lateral movement to slide and avoid and throw accurate passes on the move and from several different platforms.  He made quick, smart and decisive decisions finding both primary and secondary receivers.  When given time his accuracy both short and intermediate was very good, sticking the ball on his receivers or throwing it a spot were the defender could not make a play allowing his teammates a chance to climb the ladder and secure the ball.  Shaw is a very good athlete with the ability to run downhill with production and his clock management in this pressure situation was outstanding.

I attended the South Carolina game vs Missouri were South Carolina trailed 17-0 entering the fourth quarter, QB Connor Shaw nursing a left knee injury and the flu and was the only reason he didn’t start the game, came off the bench and lead his team to a very impressive 4th quarter come from behind road victory.
