When I read the article, I was surprised to learn that Shyton played on the same team and was even called better than former Husker star Ahman Green:
Shyton D. Sherrod made "the block of the season" during the National Youth Football Championship in 1991, allowing North Omaha Boys Club Bears teammate Ahman Green to score a critical touchdown in a game the team won.
Sherrod was as talented a player as Green, said Raymond Parks, former offensive line coach for the Bears.
"There was some discussion as to who was the better player," Parks said. "They both had the potential to go on to bigger, better things."
November has been a bad month in Omaha as the death is the eighth homicide in the city so far this month and the 40th of the year.
