Shaw injured both ankles after leaping from a second-story balcony to save his 7-year-old nephew, Carter, from drowning in a pool. Shaw was named a team captain on Saturday, Aug. 23, 2014, and later that night was attending a family function at a cousin's apartment in his hometown of Palmdale when he saw his nephew, who can't swim, struggling in the pool.
