It’s been a long and winding road in Shannon Money’s football career, but the former University of Arkansas standout has shown that you can indeed go home again.
Money is a volunteer assistant coach with the Conway coaching staff. He is a former Wampus Cat and built a reputation as one of the best offensive linemen in the state.
He returned to his hometown after failing to catch on with the NFL’s Carolina Panthers. Money was a three-year starter for Houston Nutt’s Arkansas Razorbacks following a sterling high school career that in which he captured all-state recognition while being named the Wampus Cats’ most outstanding offensive player. During a roller-coaster senior season with the Razorbacks, Money was a rock as a veteran member of the Arkansas offensive line, helping to lead U of A to a berth in the 2002 Cotton Bowl against the highly regarded Oklahoma Sooners.
