2013 Stats: Did not appear in any games

2014 Stats: Played mostly on special teams, also saw time on offense against Maine

2015 Projections: Have to imagine he will continue to play on special teams, maybe see some time against Howard and Maine if things get out of hand.

Twitter Feed: Not that I can find, though Sean Burke is a fairly common name and I might have missed it.

Uniform History: The first known player to wear the number was Ed Stewart, a back from Bridgewater, MA in the late 1920's. Linebacker Darius Bagan wore #39 as a backup linebacker in 2009. Running back Mike Javorski wore the number in 2012, though he didn't see any playing time under Spaz.

Sean's High School Coach on his play:

"Sean is just a real tough kid, and he works at it so hard," said Explorers head coach Drew Gordon. "That’s not just practice, or on the field. That’s in the weight room, in the film room and everything that we do."
