Shane Hersh was one of Nordhoff High School’s (NHS) most prolific athletes in recent memory. The 2015 NHS graduate was a four-year starter in both football and baseball and the heart and soul of every team he played on as a Ranger. 
After his time at Nordhoff, Hersh moved on to the University of Arizona to play baseball, but a coaching change upon his arrival in Tucson changed everything. “The new coaching staff brought in their own guys so there were 10 guys competing for one spot and I got cut. At the time it was hard, but I quickly learned it wasn’t the end of the world,” said Hersh.
