ORONO – Maine football senior linebacker Sterling Sheffield has become one of the fiercest defensive players in all of FCS football.
If you’ve ever talked the man they call “Sheff,” you’ll quickly learn he’s also quite the character. That was on full display at c-a-a media day in July as he gave broadcasting a try.
Sheffield and teammate Drew Belcher announced a few plays from last season. The highlight was Sheffield’s call of a Darius Hart interception return for a touchdown capping it off with a resounding touchdown call.
Sheffield figures to have a career in football after college, he may have a nice little back up plan in broadcasting though.
“I was laughing myself I called my mom and my dad they were like, “Sterling you’re just like your mom.” I was like, “yea I know the same person.” But it’s cool I was just very excited to see those plays and reminiscing how I felt on the sideline or during the play when it happened,” Sheffield said.
