Shields accumulated an impressive 183 wins during his time as a Crusader wrestler and was a team captain his Senior year. He was also a recipient of several wrestling honors over the years including the Crimson Shield award at the 2017 Leadership Ceremony.

“The Dave Schultz High School Excellence Award, presented annually to a high school senior, is based equally on outstanding wrestling success, scholastic achievement and citizenship or community service. Winners are chosen at the state and regional levels with the national winner being named at the Wrestling Hall of Fame’s Honors Weekend each summer.” NWHoF
