Sean Farr, Lake Clifton, football

Q&A --

November 15, 2006

Despite being on a Lake Clifton team that finished 3-7, Sean Farr stood out as a receiver, safety and kickoff and punt returner. The 6-foot-1, 160-pound sophomore had 39 receptions for 992 yards and eight touchdowns, six interceptions, a game-winning 92-yard punt return with two minutes left against rival Douglass and a 64-yard kickoff return. Farr, who is a B-average student, is "physically and mentally tough" assistant coach Joe Able said. "By the time he's a senior, I believe Sean will be one of the best receivers in the state."

What have you learned from assistant coach Joe Able, who played on two of the Lakers' best teams in the late 1990s?

It's exciting and fun playing for a coach like him. Coach Money [head coach James Monroe] talks about that team all the time. [Able] played football and baseball in college, so he helps me to understand what it takes to develop into a possible college prospect.

What games rank among your best performances this season?

Against Mervo [12-6 overtime loss], I had six receptions for 120 yards and a touchdown and one interception; I had 150 yards and a touchdown on seven receptions and an interception against Poly [14-12 loss]; and I returned the game-winning punt 92 yards to beat Douglass [13-7] with two minutes left.

How do you go about improving as a player?

I focus on my hand-eye coordination and make sure I look the ball into my hands. I talk to Coach [Able] about good, hard route running. I want to put more muscle on and get stronger in the weight room.

Who are you most inspired by?

My mom, Danyell Wright, has the role of both parents. We have a brother-sister type of relationship.

When did you start football and what are your goals?

I've played football since I was 5, basketball since I was 6. And with football being my favorite sport, I want to lead by example, help my teammates get better and win a state championship before I graduate.
