Devils Spotlight – Sean Matheson

Ian Cropp

Sean Matheson is a senior on the Eagle Valley football team. He plays running back and defensive back, and enjoys returning kicks and punts. He loves the team’s offense, because it confuses the heck out of the opposing team’s defense. Oh, and it lets him run for more yards than the other team’s entire offense.
