Vianney's Sean O'Brien 2013 McDonald's All-American Nominee

Congratulations to 6' 9" Vianney senior Sean O'Brien on his McDonald's All-American nomination!

I have had the pleasure of working with Sean since the spring of his sophomore year. Sean is one of the hardest-working and modest young men I've met. He relished his role last year as 6th man on a state-quarterfinalist team, and then embraced the new role of captain and leader of a this year's young and inexperienced team.  The Griffins are 12-5 at this time and getting better with every game, with Sean averaging 16 points, 9 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game.

Sean is still considering his college options, but wherever he goes, he is sure to be a positive asset to the program. Physically, the sky is the limit for this 6' 9" young man; there is so much untapped potential.  But even better, Sean is a student of the game who relishes the opportunity to be a role-model for younger athletes. He wants to be teacher and coach. I wouldn't be surprised to see him someday take over the reigns at Vianney from Coach Kevin Walsh.
