If Idaho football coach Tom Cable was looking for a durable back to "hit the ground running" next season (especially if starting running back Blair Lewis is unable to return from the ACL injury he suffered last season), then Malfred Shaw was a pretty good start. Through 9 games in 2001, Shaw rushed for 1,413 yards (157 yards per game, 6.4 yards per carry), had 82 yards receiving, and scored 12 touchdowns in Sierra's single-back set. On 3 occasions last season (that we've been able to confirm), Shaw carried the ball 30 times or more, racking up 217 yards rushing on one occasion, and 260 yards rushing on another. He ended the season a first-team all Bay Valley Conference selection.

As a freshman in 2000, Shaw put up 897 yards rushing while sharing running back duties in Sierra's single back offense.

In highschool, Shaw had back-to-back 1,000-plus-yard seasons, earning him co-Offensive Player of the Year honors both seasons in California's Gold Empire League.
