Sean, who plays both running back and saftey, began play for Lexington Catholic in the fifth game of the season.
"It was difficult being told that I couldn't play," explained Schomp. "Here I was, thinking that I had a very serious issue with a muscle in my back, when I really didn't. It was frustrating."
Even with the delayed start, the 5'10, 175-pound back still had a very productive season. He finished the season with 289-yards on 42 attempts, for an impressive 6.9-per yard average. He helped guide Lexington Catholic to a final record of 11-2. Their lone defeats were a 31-24 loss to Fort Thomas Highland in the AAA State Playoffs and a 31-25 loss at the hands of Louisville Male.
While he prefers the running back position, he realizes that he may spend the majority of 2003 season at the safety spot as Head Coach Bob Sphire rebuilds a young offensive line.
"I'd really like to play running back, because that is what I have always played, but I'll do whatever the coach asks me to," said Schomp. "We are going to be rebuilding on offense, so he is saying that he may have me play defense more this year."
While is it still very early in the recruiting process, Sean says he is looking forward it. "I'm kind of excited about it. I am going to keep my options open to everything. I may decide to go away or to stay in state. It really depends on where I feel that I am most needed and fit in."
He has yet to decide on where he will be camping during the spring.
