Danny Sheedy Barrington DB/ATH Class of 2022 6'1 195
Danny Sheedy how was your 2019 season? My 2019 season was everything we could have asked for. We came out undefeated and I had quite a few position changes, from starting at slot receiver to getting moved to running back week 5. I ended with around 10 touchdowns and was gifted MVP for Offense at the end of the year. Overall it was a spectacular season. What does football mean to you? Football means everything to me. It takes up a majority of time and I’ve been playing for around 10 years. Getting to be with all my teammates who I’ve turned into my brothers is something I’ll hold on to for many years to come. Not only do I get to play the sport I love, but I get to enjoy it with my best friends, great coaching, and a very good community to back us up. What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field? I think my strongest trait would be my attitude and my leadership. I never let my teammates hang their heads when something goes against us. I like to yell on the field and keep the energy up, because every team needs that person to amp you up. I go into games having immense confidence knowing I’m playing with my brothers and I make sure we are all in it for all 4 quarters. What should college coaches know about you? College coaches should know that I’m a hard worker on and off the field. During this past fall, without the season obviously, I’ve spent half my time in the classroom mastering my studies, and preparing for this season coming up. I strive to be the hardest worker in the room, whether it be sports or academics. I will do what it takes to lead a team to win and I will do what it takes to succeed in my courses outside of football. What goals do you have for yourself this upcoming season? Well what I’ve been trying to prioritize is securing a starting position. Now obviously nothing’s handed to me and there are a couple of Seniors in the position I’m going for, but that’s what all my hard work is hopefully going to pay off. Another goal is to lead my team to an undefeated season, and maybe try and achieve an offer. I would mainly say my goal is to see the field and showcase my talent under the lights, knowing that all the pressure is on me. I want to go out there and show everyone why I belong in the starting spot, and I’ve been working harder than ever to achieve just that.
