Former Golden Eagle Larry Shipp earns Arena League honors

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Alabama Vipers wide receiver Larry Shipp’s performance during his team's recent 63-54 victory at Utah didn’t go unnoticed by the Arena Football League.

Shipp’s eight catches for 199 yards and four touchdowns have earned him the AFL’s Russell Athletic Offensive Player of the Week award.

A former Tennessee Tech standout, Shipp (5-foot-9, 188 pounds) accounted for almost half of Alabama’s offense and snagged all but one of the five touchdown passes thrown by quarterback Kevin Eakin.

Shipp was a three-time winner of Tech's prestigious Robert Hill Johnson Award during his record-setting career as a Golden Eagle.
