Best known as a local media personality on KWQC-TV6’s “Paula Sands Live,” and on QuadCities.com, Sean Leary has been a fan and player of the Beautiful Game since his teens. He was a four-year starter for Joliet Catholic Academy, and played every position, from goalie to defense to midfield to forward. As a varsity midfielder, he received scholarships to over two dozen colleges, before accepting an offer to play at University of St. Francis. He’s been a coach for the past decade, starting at Rock Island park board, where he had a record of 67-2-1, and helped develop over two dozen players currently playing on travel teams around the Quad-Cities. After that, he moved on to Mid America Premier Soccer (ranked #1 in Illinois), Midwest Elite Dragons Indoor Soccer (over a half-dozen winter tournament championships), Quad City Rush (ranked #1 in Illinois during his tenure as a coach with Jason DeLaCruz), and in his current coaching position as assistant coach, with head coach Anthony Nache, to the EMSSC Spartans U12 team, which is ranked #8 in Illinois. He’s also got a background in education, having graduated Summa Cum Laude (4.0 on a 4.0 scale) from the Masters in Education program at University of Southern California, was the founder of Achieve Success Tutoring and is currently a substitute teacher for the Rock Island school system.
His emphasis is on unselfish team play, excellent passing and spacing, good defense and ball skills, and hard work and positive attitude.
