“I’m sad for Sean’s family, friends, teammates, our college and anyone that had contact with Sean,” Garden City coach Jeff Sims told the Garden City Telegram on Sunday night, after he held a meeting to inform the other players on the football team. “He truly was growing and developing into a man with a bright future. I believe in God’s plan and am very thankful that he blessed all of us with having Sean in our lives.
“He will continue to be a source of inspiration of how you can develop yourself from a young person who struggled at times, to a strong, confident college graduate, national champion, and most importantly, a great son to his family. I was truly blessed and thankful to know Sean Callahan.”
