Cris Shale became the most decorated player in BG football history after the 1990 season, earning spots on five different All-America teams. He was honored on the first team by the Associated Press, Football News and the American Football Coaches Association, and second team by the UPI and Sporting News. For the Associated Press honor, Shale was invited to appear on the Bob Hope Christmas Special and be introduced as an All-American in front of a national television audience.

In the 1990 season, Shale set four MAC records, including season (46.77) and career (43.09) punting average. Three of his games that season topped the Bowling Green record book for punt yardage in a game.

Shale was drafted in the 10th round by the Washington Redskins in the 1991 NFL Draft.
