The Arkansas State University football team will begin spring practice Feb. 27. Former Hoxie standout Brett Shrable of Walnut Ridge will be preparing for his senior season at ASU, which will also be the university's first season as the Wolves.

The team is expected to practice 15 times, ending with the spring game and family day cookout on April 5.

Shrable was among several members of the final Indians team to be selected for All-Conference honors. The junior punter represented ASU on the second team.

Shrable had the best season of his career as ASU's punter in 2007, averaging 41.7 yards per punt, which ranks as the second best average in the Sun Belt Conference and 35th in the nation.

He punted 47 times for 1,958 yards and had seven fair catches and five punts inside the 20. Shrable booted a career-best 57-yard punt and had long punts of over 50 yards in six games. His 41.7 yard average per punt is the fifth highest for a single season in ASU history.

The 6'2", 226-pounder took over punting duties for the Indians in 2006 and finished the year ranked sixth in the Sun Belt Conference with 38.1 yards per punt.

The son of Gary and Carol Shrable, he has been a contributor for ASU since 2005 when he played in 10 games as a true freshman at linebacker and special teams.

At Hoxie, he started as quarterback and linebacker and was the team's punter. He received All-State honors as a senior, as well as numerous other honors throughout his high school career.
