“I am focused on what I can do to ensure my team wins. I am thinking about how every person on this field wants a chance at playing at the next level, and about what I am going to do to make sure I get to that next level,” Shippam says.

The best part about playing defensive back is that the outcome of any ball thrown in his vicinity comes down to him and him only. It is him against the guy lined up across him, and the player who works harder will win the battle. While some players may not like the pressure that comes in these one on one situations, Shippam craves it.

“I love how it’s one on one because who ever can out play the other player will come out successful.”

While no one wins every battle, Shippam wins most of them but even in moments where he or his team may be down, the defensive back never gives up. His never give up attitude has been noticed and talked about by many of his teammates. Whenever someone needs a lift or has their head down, Shippam is always there to lift them up.

“My teammates would say the coolest thing about me is how I don’t give up, and how I can keep my teammates heads up even if we’re losing and how fearless I am on the field,” the Vincent Massey defensive back says.

Shippam is also a great player above the shoulders. His intelligence aids him both on and off the field. Education is very important to him and he hopes that his football talent can help pave the way for his academic career as well.

“I hope to get my education paid for by football and do really well in the future.”

Football has the potential to be the means to many of Shippam’s ends, but he wants nothing else other than to be great. The defensive back recalls how his uncle convinced him to join the sport many years ago, telling him that there was no other sport like football.

Now years later, Shippam understands what his uncle meant as to him, there is no better feeling than being out there on the field with all his teammates. The Vincent Massey defensive back loves the game and he is dedicated to working his absolute hardest to ensure that nothing can take what he loves most away from him.
