The 6-0, 192 punter and kicker helped Oak Mountain to the best season in school history with a 10-4 mark as a punter, field goal kicker and kickoff man.
Oak Mountain reached the Class 6A state semi-finals before losing to Daphne, which finished as the runnerup to Hoover.
As a senior, Shoemaker made 12-18 field goals with the longest a 48-yarder. He hit 38-39 extra points. His coach, Jerry Hood, estimates that 75 percent to 80 percent of Shoemaker's kickoffs were touchbacks.
"He did a really good job for us as both a kicker and a punter," Hood says. "He averaged 39.5 yards per punt, but could really boom the punts when he caught them and that would help us a great deal with field position." As a junior, Shoemaker's punting average was 42.5.
