Four years Varsity Navarre High School; leading goal scorer throughout his tenure, a member of the first team to go to and win a state playoff game in school history, and voted onto the All-Area Boys Soccer Team and Varsity MVP 2003.

Coaching Experience


Sean has coached youth soccer for over 8 years. His experience is from as low as U8 recreational soccer to U17 select.


His time coaching select soccer in North Carolina was spent primarily in rural, economically disenfranchised Latino communities where he found low cost methods (e.g. fundraising and sponsorships) to enable these children to experience soccer competitively. The primary goal was to use soccer as a platform for these children to better their lives through college scholarships or other playing opportunities that would have not been otherwise possible.
