He is central player who was born to parents Neil O’ Hara and Shauna, who owned a café/ book shop in Illinoi. Born as the second out of two children, Shaun was a disturbed child who didn’t like anything or anybody in his early days. He was taken to a therapist and later cured for his illness. Once recovered, he started to enjoy everything around him and also saw considerable growth in his height and body. Born in a family that followed Christianity, he is an American by nationality and belongs to a white ethnicity.

Growing up in Illinois, his parents later moved him to New Jersey as his therapist suggested a change in environment. Although there seemed to be nothing wrong with Chicago, it was later told that he might have experienced something bad around there which might have changed the way he started to behave. After moving to Jersey, the family lived at Hillsborough Township, where he grew and made friends. He attended the Hillsborough High School, where he started to learn and also enjoy a little.

After graduating in 1994, he applied for a scholarship and was selected at the Rutgers University, in New Jersey. There, he played as a team member for the Rutgers Scarlet Knights football team from 1996 to 1999.

He played in major tournaments once he had joined the Cleveland Browns in 2000, where he played in the central position. He started more than half of the season’s games although they signed him as a rookie. His physicality was a powerful weapon and was soon targeted by the New York Giants, with whom he signed in 2004 for 5.4 million dollars. But a skin allergy kept him out for 2 seasons straight, before he marked his return with his team in the Super Bowl XLII in 2007.
