Josh Shaw, seen here saving a football from the other team.

On the morning of Saturday, August 23, USC cornerback Josh Shaw was elected team captain for the Division 1 Trojans. That afternoon, he was at a family party when he suddenly noticed his 7-year old cousin (who does not know how to swim) flailing in a nearby pool. Without hesitating, Shaw jumped from a second-story balcony down onto the concrete below, resulting in high-ankle sprains in both legs. He then crawled into the pool and got his nephew to safety before pulling himself out by his arms.
