Makes you wonder "what if"...What if he had taken the year
off when he had his first concussion earlier this year.......I mean...why risk
it? Now he will never know how good he might have been~Why didn't
the Doctors recommend a year off?
One of the all-time studs in Utah high school football, whose best years as a
Ute were ahead of him. Best of luck going forward.
Shak? Wow, this is very sad news. As an Alta Alumn, many years before him I was
rooting for him. He was amazing to watch back in high school. He was the best
High School running back the state has seen. That includes Langi and I love
Langi to. Shak, best of luck to you in the future. This is horrible news. Again,
best of luck to you and your family. Dang, this is sad.
From a Coug, I wish him the best and the Utes a fine replacement for next year.
Sorry to hear the bad news. I hope Shak is able to take these "lemons"
that life has handed him and make lemonade. Best of luck
Pretty crass. Sausan has a serious injury with long term implications and we're
feeling sorry for a football team. All we can think about is a replacement,
maybe Aaron Harris, to entertain us.
Sad to hear news like this for players. wish him all the best. I remember him
running all over Bingham when he was at Alta.
Way to go JMT... You come on here and talk crap on an article about a player
that can no longer play due to injuries... Just how much more pathetic can BYU
fans get!! This is not an article about BYU so leave the trash talk out of it
saying you are going to beat us... What a joke!!Putting that aside,
Shak was our running back for the PAC... He was going to be our go to guy in the
back field next year... This is a sad day for Utah Fans but an even sadder day
for Shak... God bless you and may you succeed in everything that you do, And
thank you for those great Long Run TDs buddy, You will surely be missed!!
That's a shame. Always sad to hear of an athletes career ending prematurely
because of injuries. He looked like he would be a good back.@JustAnotherAverageGuyNo. Langi will not be going to utah. They
were barely even a consideration for him to begin with.
I am sad for him and the Ute program. He had a bright football future ahead of
him. I hate to see anyone's football career end because of an injury -
especially concussion-related. My best to Mr. Shakerin and his future without
Sorry to hear about this story. This coug fan wishes the best for him in the
I wonder if this will sway Langi from Bingham to give the U a harder look.
This is sad. I always hate to see anyone get seriously injured - and concussions
are especially insidious and can affect a person the rest of his life. Sausan
had the potential to be another in a long line of solid Ute running backs. I
remember hoping the Cougars would land him back when he was playing at Alta.Best wishes to him for the rest of his college experience and in his
Shaks one of the best athletes ever to come from our school sad to see him not
continue at the nxt level good luck shak
I always hate to hear this kind of news, rivalry aside. Shakerin's
name stands out to me, even though the Ute program is a passing fancy at best.
When I've seen him play he has looked to be a good option for the future of Utah
running backs, a position I deem the Utes biggest strength throughout the years
if ever there was a lasting tradition of great players at any one spot (Sorry if
that sounds like a backhanded compliment; it's hard enough to give credit where
it's due, so I'm not about to give more credit than is due). Good
luck Shakerin with your future! Good luck Utes with finding a worthy
replacement. Take it to the Pac-10 in the coming years! Play every team with as
much determination as when you play BYU and you'll do give 'em all fits!
Shak is one of the nicest kids I've ever met... took a couple pictures with my
then five year old son, and has been one of his favorite players ever since....
Good luck with all you do!sincerely, another athlete who got to injured to
Utes need to go hard after Junior College Aaron Harris out of Chula Vista (Dec.
grad)He's a four star -5'11 200lbs and runs a 4.4.Harris
has torn it up at the JC level for the past two years - would also be available
for spring camp.GO GET'm Utes!!
Really sorry to hear this. I've never met him but followed him since high
school. Interesting that some players seems to get more concussions than others.
Even age seems to play a factor. As an example Steve Young never had problems
then the his last season he had a few, Troy Aikman also.I wish him
the best, and all humor aside, he gets tremendous memories and hopefully a great
education.Also, BYU beats New Mexico and Utah, wins the bowl game
and finishes 8-5, setting up a great year next year.
When it rains, it poursShakerin had some good potential. It is too
bad for Utah football, but hopefully Sausan was able to get a good headstart in
his academic career with the football scholarship.
