How he got to College Park
Shinsky wasn’t even sure he’d get the chance to play collegiate football. But before his senior year at McDonogh came to a close, he got a call from the Maryland recruiting staff, offering him a spot as a preferred walk-on in the upcoming fall.
Named an All-State, All-Metro and All-MIAA conference kicker, Shinsky was connected to the Maryland staff by the likes of Matt Stover, a former NFL kicker who’s spent time as a coach with former Maryland kicker Brad Craddock and returning redshirt senior Adam Greene.
