Name: Seamus Shanley
Position: Offensive Guard
Hometown: Syracuse, N.Y.
High School: West Genesee High School
2014 Stats: He appeared in two games.
2015 Projections: He's listed second on the post-spring depth chart at right guard, behind redshirt freshman Aaron Roberts. Both guys are unproven, so it's possible that Shanley could see a little more playing time this season.
How'd He Get Here: Shanley is a walk-on by way of West Genesee High School in Syracuse.
What'd Recruiting Sites Say: They didn't.
Interesting Nugget O'Interest: He's the son of Department of Public Safety officer Joe Shanley, a favorite among SU students. When DPS changed his position and reduced his salary in January 2013, students rallied in support of him.
Money Quote: Seamus on his father, via the Newshouse: "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."
Links Of Wonder: Some info on his West Genesee team, which won New York's Section III Class AA championship in 2011.
Tweets Of Wonder: Seems like Shanley is excited for the upcoming season.
