Sean is a 15 year-old from Pittsburgh, and he is a serious sports fan! As soon as we met him, he told us that he wanted to be a sports broadcaster. He had gotten some practice announcing girls volleyball games at his high school and he knew it was what he wanted to do for a career. Luckily, we had the perfect role model for Sean - Pittsburgh Pirates broadcaster and play by play announcer, Joe Block!
On their first visit, Joe and Sean spent over two hours chatting about EVERYTHING - from sports, to broadcasting careers, to school. Joe told Sean about how he got started and the broadcasters who helped him along the way. He even shared some secrets about how he gets familiar with the players before games and gave Sean some tips about what he could do to start preparing for his own career in broadcasting.
Sean and Joe are anxiously awaiting baseball season, where they hope to spend some time together in the press box announcing games and cheering on the buccos!
For those of you who were at our Night of Inspiration this past September, Sean might look familiar since he was our emcee of the night and did an OUTSTANDING job! He is definitely heading down the right career path!
