Bio Bits

College: Shaw earned the starting setting job at Stanford as a freshman, and he ranked seventh in the country in assists that season. As a sophomore he was named Second-Team All-American after ranking 10th nationally in assists. After missing half of his junior year due to injury, he returned as a senior and was named the league's Player of the Year as well as winning the Lloyd Ball Award (for the nation's best setter). 

Personal: Shaw's father, Don, coached both men and women's volleyball at Stanford, leading the women's team to four national championships.  His older sister, Jordan, played volleyball at St. Mary's and then became the head coach of the beach volleyball team there.
