Every week through football season, DawgNation writer Kipp Adams will reveal five things he learned while out on the road for Friday football. Those nuggets could include recruiting gems, game observations and/or merely thoughts on sports in general. You might already know all of it, but do us a favor and try your best to pretend it's all news to you.

Johnathon McCrary
Kipp Adams/ESPN.com Cedar Grove quarterback Jonathon McCrary, a Vanderbilt pledge, was held to 92 yards passing by Tucker.
On Friday I was at Hallford Stadium in Clarkston, Ga., to see Tucker take on Cedar Grove.

  1. Big man on campus: Pushing 6-foot-6 and 293 pounds, junior lineman Elisha Shaw (Tucker, Ga./Tucker) was easy to spot on Friday. Shaw gave the Cedar Grove offensive linemen fits throughout the game, and on one play he took the center and left guard and drove both into the running back, making the tackle in the backfield in the process. It was an impressive play, and it showed why schools such as Alabama and Florida State have already offered, even though Shaw sat out his sophomore season. Shaw’s offer list should soar over the next six months as schools get his game film.
