O’Brien will be heading to Hendrix College, joining his brother Sean who was a freshman on the Warriors’ roster this past season. Hendrix is a NCAA Division III school playing in the Southern Athletic Conference.
The younger O’Brien was being recruited by other schools in the conference but said the year of growth by his older brother Sean in the Warrior program made his final decision Hendrix.
Shane has played all four years at TRA under Head Coach Dodd Gengenbach and Defensive Coordinator/Father Shannon O’Brien. The pair of coaches describe Shane as the quarterback of the defense the past two seasons at middle linebacker.
This past season Shane took more reps in the backfield on offense. O’Brien Hendrix will give him a serious look at full back and tight end at the next level giving him a chance to practice against his brother Sean often.
