Cody Shustack is being recognized for his being the 42nd player in MCA history to be named to the Associated Press First Team All State football team as a linebacker. Cody lead the Red Tornadoes in tackles with 118 during the District Championship run in 2011. He would join only a handful of players to record over 100 tackles for 3 consecutive seasons. He finished with 358 career tackles, placing him 5th on the all time list behind Steve Matzura, Vince Yasenchak, Joey Costello and Mike Diminick.
Cody would also distinguish himself running the football, going over 1000 yards during the 2011 season rushing for 1092 yards and a 7.6 yard average. Cody and fellow running back Meyrick Lamb were the first set of backs since 1970 to go over the 1000 yard mark in the same season. They are only the fourth set of backs in MCA history to accomplish the fete.
Cody was a four-year member of Red Tornado football that would go 41-11 during his time with the team. He would also be a part of 2 District Championship teams in 2008 and 2011, one Eastern Conference Championship squad in 2009, and a District semi finalist in 2010. Cody is the son of Erika and John Shustack of Kulpmont.
