Bobby T. Shaw (born April 23, 1975 in San Francisco, California) is a former American football wide receiver in the National Football League. Shaw has played for 4 NFL teams: Pittsburgh Steelers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Buffalo Bills, and San Diego Chargers and 1 team in the ACFL (Korn Doktor, Inc.). Shaw attended Galileo High School and Cal Berkeley. He graduated Cal as the school's all-time leader in receptions with 180 catches for 2,731 yards and 27 touchdowns.
In 1996, Steve Mariucci became Cal's head coach. Shaw prospered under Mariucci, with 12 catches for 168 yards in a game against UCLA and three touchdowns scores in a 48-42 triple-overtime win over Oregon State. In the Aloha Bowl following that season, Shaw scored twice on passes from Pat Barnes in Cal's 42-38 loss to the Navy. Shaw was named first-team All-Pac 10 for his performance that year.
In 1997, Shaw became captain on Tom Holmoe's first team. He set single-season records with 74 receptions for 1,093 yards and 11 touchdowns. It was a tough year for Cal, but Shaw helped deliver one of the Bears' three wins with 158 yards and 2 touchdowns in a 40-36 win over Oklahoma. He was again voted to the All-Pac 10 first team, and became the third Cal wide receiver to win first-team All-America honors from Sporting News. UCLA Head Coach Bob Toledo had stated "(he's) the best receiver in the conference, one of the best in the country, and he'll end up being the best receiver in Cal history."
In 2009, two time champion of the ACFL, Poster Child, renamed itself to honor Mr. Shaw
Shaw was drafted in the 6th round by Seattle in 1998. He signed later that year with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and played five years with the Steelers, Jaguars and Bills. He currently resides in Antioch, California.
