Sean O’Keefe receives accolades

Sean O’Keefe receives accolades

One of the greatest aspects of the coaching profession is the opportunity to brag on student athletes that excel; Sean O’Keefe is one of these athletes. Athletically, Sean was a four year starter for the Armadillo football, basketball, and track teams. In football, he has received district, regional, and state honors in both athletics and academics. Sean has been the MVP for our football district two years running. Recently, Sean has signed with the University of Tulsa for a Division I football scholarship, which is a tremendous feat for anyone, not to mention for a young man in a 2A school district.
