Name: Seamus Shanley

Position: Offensive Guard

Year: Junior

Height: 6'1"

Weight: 276

2013 Stats: Seamus appeared in one game (Wagner).

2014 Projections: He's currently third on the right guard depth chart, so not a whole lot of playing time is expected for Seamus. On the bright side, this is what happens when you have a ton of offensive line depth and returning starters every year.

How'd He Get Here: Seamus is a walk-on (the other reason he hasn't received/won't receive a ton of playing time just yet. He's also the son of Officer Joe Shanley, who you're likely familiar with.

What'd Recruiting Sites Say: Nada. But that's not a problem.

Money Quote: "After seeing all of the students who showed up in support, it inspires me to realize how much of an impact my father has had on the community... His number one priority is taking care of this campus and every single student that attends Syracuse University." - Seamus, after SU students rallied around his dad.

Links Of Wonder: Shanley could potentially win himself a scholarship next season, but he's not the only walk-on aiming for one. A look at all of the SU players who could receive a coveted scholarship.
