Leadership

Founder and Bowl Game Director, Mike Shaw developed the Isthmus Bowl out of a passion for Division III athletics. As a college athlete, Shaw (a University of Wisconsin-Platteville alum) experienced an NCAA Division III basketball tournament berth himself — he knew the value of granting similar opportunities to deserving athletes.
