Lacrosse’s Sean Byrne Named Athlete of the Week

Written by Madeline Gamblin – On the Plank Staff Reporter

Our athlete of the week this week is Sean Byrne. Sean is a senior at Allatoona High School and has been playing Lacrosse since he was in the 6th grade. “Sean is our extra coach out there… He leads with passion and positivity,” says Lacrosse Head Coach Jonathan Wishon. “My job this year is to push our team as hard as possible to make them the best players and most selfless teammates they can be,” Sean says. His favorite memory while playing lacrosse at Allatoona “was the North Carolina trip our team took right before COVID-19 happened last season… We played Apex and Audrey Kell winning both games… something about those games our team was clicking very well, and that atmosphere was something I have never felt before.” Sean has been accepted to attend and play Lacrosse at the United States Military Academy at Army West Point and plans to serve our country. His advice to younger players is to “enjoy every single second you can with the sport and make the most out of everything you can because it can all go away in a second.”
