Meet the five inspiring leaders on the 2020 Uplifting Athletes Rare Disease Champion Team


Uplifting Athletes is pleased to announce the 2020 Rare Disease Champion Team.

For more than a dozen years, Uplifting Athletes has celebrated leaders in college football that have made a positive and lasting impact on the Rare Disease Community through its Rare Disease Champion initiative.

The five members of the 2020 Uplifting Athletes Rare Disease Champion team are Syracuse punter Nolan Cooney, Syracuse quarterback Rex Culpepper, Stanford head coach David Shaw, Austin Peay defensive lineman Josephus Smith and Northwestern defensive lineman Joe Spivak. 

Uplifting Athletes couldn’t be more proud to share these inspiring rare disease stories.

“We have been moved by the way each member of the 2020 Rare Disease Champion Team has used their platform to inspire, serve and support the Rare Disease Community,” Uplifting Athletes Executive Director Rob Long said. “Our tradition of honoring the team at in-person events is not plausible during these times, but we feel it is our duty and honor to recognize, celebrate and share their inspiring accomplishments and stories.”

Each member of the 2020 Rare Disease Champion Team will be honored and celebrated during the first two weeks of Rare Disease Awareness Month in February 2021.

The Rare Disease Champion Team is an Uplifting Athletes awareness initiative that is part of the National College Football Awards Association (NCFAA). Nominees for the award were solicited from any NCAA FBS, FCS, Division II or Division III institution or college football program nationwide.

Kent State wide receiver Antwan Dixon, Davidson linebacker George Hatalowich, Syracuse offensive lineman Sam Heckel, Penn student assistant Anthony Lotti and Kentucky linebacker Josh Paschal comprised the 2019 Rare Disease Champion Team.

Past Rare Disease Champion winners consist of seven FBS players including USC long snapper Jake Olson (2016), UCF linebacker Shaquem Griffin (2018) and Auburn wide receiver Sammie Coates (2015), one FCS player, a Division III quarterback, two FBS assistant coach and an administrator from AFCA. 

The Uplifting Athletes Rare Disease Champion Team is a member of the National College Football Awards Association. The NCFAA encompasses the most prestigious awards in college football. Founded in 1997, the NCFAA and its 25 awards now boast over 800 recipients, dating to 1935.

Thank you to Nolan Cooney of Syracuse, Thomas Ruocchio and Dylan Autenrieth of NC State, Michael Marchese of Illinois, Will Spiers of Clemson, Jack DeFoor of Georgia Tech, Joe Spivak of Northwestern, Brock Wright of Notre Dame and Jake Funk of Maryland for inspiring the Rare Disease Community with hope.

Northwestern: For the sixth consecutive year, the Wildcats claimed the Land of Lincoln Trophy over rival and fellow chapter school Illinois. Northwestern amassed more than 400 yards on the ground for the first time since 2003. Running backs Evan Hull and Cam Porter combined for 291 of those yards and three touchdowns. Northwestern Chapter leader, defensive lineman Joe Spivak, had three tackles. Illinois Chapter leader, linebacker Michael Marchese, had three solo tackles and a pass break-up. The Wildcats are champions of the Big Ten West for the second time in three years and will play Ohio State Saturday in the Big Ten Championship game.

Penn State: A monster second half propelled the Nittany Lions past Michigan State for their third win in a row. Penn State outscored the Spartans 29-3 in the second half on Senior Day. Quarterback Sean Clifford threw a pair of second-half touchdown passes to Parker Washington, and Jahan Dotson returned a punt 81 yards for a score. Dotson became the third Big Ten player since 2000 to record 100 receiving yards and return a punt for a touchdown in the same game, joining Michigan’s Steve Breaston (2006) and Wisconsin’s Brandon Williams (2005). Clifford, former Penn State Chapter President, finished with 280 total yards (232 passing, 48 rushing) and accounted for three touchdowns.

Florida State: Quarterback Jordan Travis sparked a ground game that churned out more than 300 yards and accounted for six touchdowns in the victory over Duke. The redshirt sophomore rushed for 90 yards, setting FSU’s single-season record for rushing yards by a quarterback with 559 – surpassing the 504 by Charlie Ward in 1992. Florida State Chapter President, linebacker DeCalon Brooks, finished with three tackles.

Round-Up: The final play of the key Western Michigan game at Ball State saw the Broncos score an apparent game winning touchdown after a wild series of laterals only to see an illegal forward pass negate the play. The Broncos outgained the Cardinals 491-352 and led by 14 heading into the fourth quarter. … Maryland Chapter leader, running back Jake Funk, had 180 yards on only 17 carries with a touchdown before leaving the game with an injury in an overtime setback to Rutgers. It was the first time in his career where Funk scored a touchdown and the Terrapins didn’t claim victory. … The Georgia Tech defense kept the Yellow Jackets in the game against Pitt, limiting the Panthers to only one touchdown in six trips inside the red zone. Pitt’s ground game allowed the Panthers to keep the ball away from the Tech offense in the victory, by running up more than 300 rushing yards and nearly 40 minutes in time of possession. … Baylor took the field against Top 25 ranked Oklahoma State shorthanded because of COVID-19. The Bears were missing 47 players, coaches and support staff in the loss to the Cowboys.

Shaun Hastings is built to be an impactful leader in the lives of others


Shaun Hastings may be a massive 6-4, 280-pound offensive lineman, but his mother says his soft heart has always been the biggest thing about the Saint Francis University redshirt junior.  

The oldest of three siblings, Hastings was protective of his younger brother and sister. It was an instinct he displayed at a young age and one that not only helped his family navigate through a tough period but also laid the building blocks for the man Shaun is today.

“I noticed as he was growing up Shaun was always so in tune to others’ feelings,” said his mother, Erin Hastings. “He always was putting others before himself.”

“One of the biggest things I have learned is how much of an impact that I myself can have on so many people’s lives.”

Shaun Hastings

When Shaun was nearly 10 years old, his brother Matthew began to struggle with issues. As the diagnosis of ADHD/SPD slowly came into focus, finding the right combination of medication and therapy to help Matthew was a strain on the family. 

“I was younger when Matthew was first diagnosed,” Shaun said. “Even at that age I could see it was frustrating and difficult for my parents and our family. Learning how to deal with his issues, finding the right medications for him … it was some tough times.”

Shaun was keenly aware of Matthew’s issues, Erin said, and was a calming presence for his brother. That steady influence laid the foundation for a tight relationship that served both brothers well as they grew up.

“Shaun is very protective. I think with the difficulties we had in the beginning with Matthew, he was very keen on how others perceived his brother,” Erin said. “[Matthew] noticed the stares and the whispers, and Shaun stepped in to help.

“I never asked Shaun to help. He was such a calming influence for Matthew. And it was tough for me at first to reconcile having my kid help me. But I never asked him. He did it all by himself. I came to realize it was just who he is.”

Matthew and Shaun never attended the same school because of their seven-year age difference. Still, Shaun remained keenly aware of what was going on around his brother.

Shaun made sure to stay in tune with what was going on when they left the house. He wanted Matthew to be viewed the same as everybody else. It was extremely important to him. 

“I feel everyone deserves a shot to be treated right and fairly. Especially kids. Growing up, kids are mean and it’s tough,” Shaun said. “It was just something I was aware of. It wasn’t something I could protect my brother from, per se, but I just kept an open eye and looked out for him.”

During those early years, as the Hastings family worked through finding Matthew the right combination of a proper diagnosis and medications, Erin discovered Shaun had a special soft spot for kids. And it was more than Matthew. He gravitated to all of them.

“It’s not just the relationship with his brother,” Erin said. “It’s his cousins, our friends’ kids. Kids are a big deal to Shaun. He’s always such a calming influence on them and he’s always had a soft spot for kids with disabilities or who are struggling, obviously. Kids just gravitate to him and I describe Shaun to everyone as a big leader.”

A soft spot for kids, leadership abilities and a willingness to put others first  … it’s no wonder Shaun has discovered ways to fill the servant-leader gap while he’s away from his family at college.

When Shaun arrived on campus at Saint Francis in 2017, football and school dominated his focus. And that hasn’t changed. Shaun is taking classes on campus, dealing with COVID-19 guidelines and hoping the Red Flash have a season in early 2021. Meanwhile, he has discovered outlets and opportunities to help others.

During his freshman year while he was “finding his way,” Shaun came across an opportunity to be involved with Special Olympics. Kids and a community that needed help were a natural fit.

Later that first year, he participated in the Saint Francis Chapter of Uplifting Athletes Lift for Life and wanted to learn more about what it was all about.

As a leader, and a person who gets a high level of satisfaction helping serve people or communities that are challenged or underserved, Shaun learned more about the chapter and the rare disease cause and knew it was something he wanted to be a part of.

“I never really got involved with organizations and stuff [at Cedar Cliff high school] because I was always very busy in high school,” said Shaun. “My freshman year here I was still trying to find my place. I was looking for things that fit so I could help.

“So I got involved in Special Olympics. That was my first step. When I was a freshman we had Lift For Life and that really interested me.”

Shaun attended the Uplifting Athletes Leadership Development Conference in Atlanta in early 2020 after volunteering to become a chapter leader to better help serve the Rare Disease Community. 

No one is less surprised than his mother that Shaun has found a way to serve others. She saw it up close and personal in their home for more than a decade.

“He has a heart of gold. Personality-wise he’s 100 percent like his father [Mark] but because of what we went through with Matthew and how I had to learn and train to adjust to being in tune with his needs, I like to think this side he gets from me,” Erin said. “I don’t think I’ve ever had a conversation with Shaun where he put himself first. His default is to put others first and I’m proud of him for finding ways to put his talents outside of football to use.”
