Alumni Interview: Jeff Shinn, Football (1998-2001)

Jeff Shinn holds a distinction within the UMHB football program. A distinction that will always be part of what has become one of the winningest programs in D-III football. Shinn, a running back from San Antonio, Texas, who played with the Cru from 1998-2001, scored the first touchdown in program history, when he crossed the goal line in his hometown in UMHB’s inaugural game, facing nationally-ranked Trinity (TX) on Sept. 5, 1998. 

Shinn contributed to the building of what we know Crusader football to be in the present day, and finished his collegiate career with 35 games played, 1,596 total rushing yards, and 19 touchdowns. True To The Cru’s Riley Zayas recently had the opportunity to catch up with Shinn, and discuss UMHB football past and present, in this interview presented by the Crusader Football Alumni Association.

  1. Jack Johnson as an original football member and now DC Coordinator would be a good interview. He’s been part of all of UMHB trips to the Stagg Bowls including the frist one in 2004 as a graduate assistant
