A BIT MORE ABOUT SEAN:
Sean was introduced to volleyball relatively late in his life. It wasn't until college that he truly fell in love with the sport. Since then, Sean has been finding ways to continually be involved in the volleyball community. We are glad to welcome Sean back to the San Diego/Seaside volleyball family.
