Anthony Shegog is North Stafford (Stafford, VA) football’s Mr. Versatility.  Running back, wide receiver, safety, cornerback, linebacker, rush end, kick and punt returner… positions the 6’2″, 205-pound standout played at one point or another in his junior season.  Shegog’s do-everything role has not changed much in his senior year, and he continues to produce.

Here are some of the Virginia Tech-bound prospect’s notable accomplishments through six games this season:

– A 97-yard touchdown run in North Stafford’s season opening win against Potomac.  He finished the game with 133 yards rushing on 16 carries.

– 32-yard fumble return for a touchdown in a win over Riverbend

– 65-yard punt return for a touchdown in a win over Brooke Point

– At least five catches for 116 yards, including one game where he had two receptions for 69 yards

– Two forced fumbles

Most importantly, Shegog has come through in the biggest situations.  In addition to a stellar rushing performance the season opener, he came up with a forced fumble in the fourth quarter while Potomac was driving for a potential game-tying score (read the full game write-up here).
