Boasting a perfect 4.0 GPA in the classroom, Brian Shaw was a leader on and off the field.  During his senior season, Shaw alternated with fellow senior Tony Ortiz at Sam linebacker.  The pair made the position one of Nebraska's strongest for the past three years.

Shaw was honored before the Oklahoma State game on Oct. 2 when he was the Burger King Scholar-Athlete of the Week and $10,000 was donated to the school's general scholarship fund.  He was again honored at the ESPN/Home Depot Awards Show as the Division I Burger King Scholar-Athlete of the Year and $25,000 more was donated to the school in his name.  In his career, $36,000 has been donated in his name.  Shaw earned postgraduate scholarships from both the NCAA and Big 12.  He was a two-time second-team GTE/CoSIDA Academic All-American and became the third Husker all-time to be a four-time academic all-conference winner, joining punter Mike Stigge (1989-92) and offensive tackle Rob Zatechka (1991-94).
