New Spartan: R.J. Shelton

Postion: Running Back

Hometown: Beaver Dam, WI

High School: Beaver Dam

HT: 5-11   WT: 185 Ranking: 

Running Back - No. 44 overall running back

BREAKDOWN: Elusive, versatile back who can catch the ball out of the backfield and makes a lot of things happen in the open field. Has good feet and ability to make defenders miss. Shows good breakaway speed. Has been a big play guy as a return man as well. He is more of a slasher and all purpose back than a power guy. Did not play a high level of competition in high school. - Allen Trieu
