Need evidence that Bishop England football player Nick Shiver goes the extra mile in life? Against North Charleston two weeks away, Shiver got the hand-off and should have been tackled well short of the 1st down, but kept his balance and turned the play around.

Coach John Cantey says that play is just one of the many from Nick. "He never gives up. That play, he looked like he was going to fall on his back, but he caught himself, and his butt was an inch from the ground. He stayed up and kept going. People were standing there, getting back in the huddle and he is still running the ball."

"It's 4th down and I knew I had to get it, so I was like let's see how much farther I can keep going," says Shiver.

Nick has done well for himself this season with that mentality, finding the end zone plenty of times, and keeping others out of it while playing defense. Against Hanahan early in the year, Shiver came down with the interception over the much taller receiver he was guarding. Nick explains, "I just want to be on the field, that's it. If I have to cover the best guy, or cover whoever they need me to cover, I'll take care of what they need me to do and just try to help out. If it is make a play on the ball or make the tackle, just got to do what I got to do."

Shiver does what he has to do in the classroom as well with a 5.0 GPA and dreams of going to West Point. "Why West Point? Everything. It's leadership, the experience it provides, the service afterwards, everything. I feel like it can help me with to become the best person I can be later on."

"Nick Shiver is a great kid, off the field and on the field. He has got great grades, and he does everything the right way, the way it is supposed to be done," says Cantey. "I am very proud to have him on this football team, and I think he is going to be able to play some ball at the next level. Wherever he goes, he is going to be successful."
