Former SDA Star Sean Flood shines in the Irish Senior Men’s Euro Qualifier Campaign
SDA star Sean Flood had an excellent Irish Men’s 2022 campaign as starting point guard. Sean was a consistent leader in both assists and 3-point field goals while helping the national team to a successful small nations tournament win and a positive Euro qualifier campaign.
Sean attended the SDA Elite Invitational Camp in 2015 to compete against the best in Ireland and to support his dream to continue his development in the USA. At camp Sean won Camp Co-MVP and the 3-Point Contest while showing true leadership skills throughout. Sean impressed a number of American college coaches with his shooting ability, decision-making and character. Sean’s SDA Camp highlights and SDA Player Profile put his talents in the shop window and served as the starting point for many interested American prep school and college coaches. Sante Fe College proved to be the most keen to get Sean on board given the fit between Sean and Sante Fe’s athletic and academic requirements.
After a successful campaign at Sante Fe College Sean earned a scholarship to Longwood University who compete in the Big South Conference, Division 1 (NCAA). Sean had a great career at Longwood University where he was an instrumental leader both on and off the court and was the team’s most potent 3-point shooter.
After graduating from college Sean continues to excel in both his professional basketball career (Cyprus) and International basketball career (starting point guard for the Irish Senior Men’s team).
“SDA was extremely helpful in both developing my skills at the Invitational Camp, and then getting my game out there through my highlights and through the SDA Player Profile Service. These tools were so important in getting me the exposure I needed to go follow my student-athlete dream to play and study in the USA. Every young athlete who is serious about reaching their potential should be a part of SDA” – Sean Flood (Irish International)
“We are very grateful for the support and guidance SDA has provided both Sean and ourselves as his parents – it made the process much clearer and SDA is an invaluable service to any aspiring Irish student-athlete out there who wants to get noticed” – Margaret Flood (Sean’s Mother)
SDA is very proud of Sean and what he has achieved to date, and we wish him continued success into the future!
