Westmoore’s DeAngelo Shanks – Athlete Spotlight – Presented by Fleming Dental Co.

2021 Westmoore Football Schedule

Westmoore’s DeAngelo Shanks enters his senior season on the football field, but this will be his first time playing for the Jaguars. Shanks, a transfer from Carl Albert, made an early impression for head coach Lorenzo Williams, who noticed his leadership once he joined the program in the offseason.

“His willingness to work and put others first,” Williams said. “He leads by example. He checked all the character boxes right away. He’s the kind of kid that you want in your program.”

Shanks plays at the outside linebacker position, with the flexibility to take on blockers to stop the run and pressure the quarterback. 

“He’s a ballplayer,” Williams said. “Tackles for loss, quarterback pressures, and tipped passes. He does it all on defense.”

In three games this season, Shanks has 30 tackles and three sacks, with two sacks coming in a 35-14 victory against district rival Southmoore. Shanks will also start for the time in his career on the offensive side of the ball as Williams has asked of his defensive playmaker to start at the center position as well.

Shanks credits his dad and Williams for their guidance on and off the field.

“My dad has taught me a lot about football, having played at the Division II level,” Shanks said. “And he’s taught me a lot about what to and what not to do as a young man to make me a better person overall. Coach Zo played in college and in the NFL, so every day I try to pick his brain and learn as much as I can from him.”
