Justin David Kish: Thank you so much for your time Shuler. Tell us about yourself?

Shuler Littleton: My names Shuler Littleton, Im an OT from the great city of York, SC and I have recently finished my career as a Campbell University Fighting Camel.  

Justin David Kish: You played football at Campbell University. Tell us about your time at Campbell?

Shuler Littleton: I couldn’t have asked for anything more of my time spent at Campbell University. I take great pride in the fact that I helped build a non-scholarship PFL football team into the Big South team it is today with the potential of becoming an FCS powerhouse.

Justin David Kish: During your career, you wore #70. Is there any reason as to why you chose that number?

Shuler Littleton: I started wearing 70 in the 8th grade and I guess it stuck pretty well.

Justin David Kish: During your career at Campbell, you were coached by head coach Mike Minter and offensive coordinator David Marsh. How did the Campbell coaching staff improve you as a player and what did you learn?

Shuler Littleton: As far as Coach Minter goes, he developed me far outside the realms of just a football player. He developed leadership skills in me and a high aptitude for understanding people around me. In the two seasons, I spent with Coach Marsh I learned more about the skills that come with accomplishing a common goal and mission. I’m thankful for having received a taste of what he learned as a United States Marine.

Justin David Kish: Playing in the Big South of the FCS you played against teams like Kennesaw State, Monmouth and Georgetown. What is one game in your career that really took you to your limits?

Shuler Littleton: Physically I push myself to the limits in every game I play. The key to a good player/leader is how far you can get the people around you to push themselves. With that understanding id say my biggest feat was keeping my teamates at the top of their game for 60 minutes in any dog fight.

Justin David Kish: Being an offensive lineman you have played against some of the most elite defensive players in the FCS. Who was the toughest player you ever played against in your career?

Shuler Littleton: The most exciting games I’ve had as far as competition goes would be the DE’s for Georgetown and Coastal.

Justin David Kish: During your career at Campbell you created so many great memories with your teammates. What is one memory that stands out from the rest?

Shuler Littleton: Id say my favorite memory was saying goodbye after the last game. That was the first time me and my closest teamates realized our work done.

Justin David Kish: What does it mean to be a Campbell Camel?

Shuler Littleton: Being a Camel means taking in pride of today. Athletes at other larger schools take pride in a long history before them. We take pride in what we are doing today and what we have planned for tommorow.

Justin David Kish: You are on your road to professional football. What are some of your measurables?

Shuler Littleton:  6’7, 300 lbs. / 4.8. 40 yd / 31 in vertical 

Justin David Kish: How are you currently preparing yourself for the upcoming NFL Draft? Who are you working out with?

Shuler Littleton: Currently in the process of setting that up. Open to offers. 

Justin David Kish: What is one area of your game do you consider your biggest strength and one area of your game you are always improving on?

Shuler Littleton: My strengths are in my knowledge of the game, quickness, and most of all athleticism. I think im far more athletic than the average 300 pounder. As far as an area I countinue to improve on it is my ability to remained centered in games. Not getting overly ramped up.

Justin David Kish: What was your chemistry with your teammates at Campbell?

Shuler Littleton: Our chemistry is the bond we share in battle. Any group of guys going to war together will get close. On top of that its fairly relaxed. Anyone has the potential to be a leader in any moment.

Justin David Kish: Name a time in your career that you overcame adversity and what did you learn from the experience?

Shuler Littleton: When I first got to Campbell I was coming in around 275 and wasent going to be a guy for the team unless I picked up weight. Three months later I was 315. If you want something bad enough you will make it happen. 

Justin David Kish: Do you have the ability to command the players around you?

Shuler Littleton: Command is a bad word for it. I have the ability to push others around me to be their best self. In that, I build a relationship in which my teammates trust me enough to follow me. 

Justin David Kish: What separates you from the rest of the draft-eligible offensive lineman in the upcoming draft?

Shuler Littleton: Id say what seperates me is that idea of being a diamond in the rough. Iv always had to prove myself and will continue to do so.

Justin David Kish: Outside of football, what does a typical day off look like for you?

Shuler Littleton: Still waking up early enough to make effective use of the 8 hours I have. In season, working to recover and do school work, out of season working to get stronger.

Justin David Kish: In the next couple of questions I am going to put you on the line. My first question, if you could compare yourself to any current NFL offensive lineman who would it be and why?

Shuler Littleton: I would compare myself to any tackle that is long, lean, and active. Iv watched hours of film on Joe Staley. 

Justin David Kish: My final question, if I was an NFL General Manager why should I draft Shuler Littleton?

Shuler Littleton: Because im not some pre-Madona that expect a hand out. I understand what is on the line and where I come from. Because of this I will work to prove myself on a daily basis.
