"I like to make things happen," Sheehy admitted to JCFootball.com. "I rarely fair catch because I want to make things happen for my team and help them any way that I can."
So far this season, Sheehy is averaging close to 26 yards on kick returns and just over 16 yards as a punter returner including one he took back 89 yards against Mesa that was the difference in the game.
"This past offseason, I did a ton of agility work," Sheehy noted. "I worked on sinking my hips, being more explosive out of my breaks, lateral movements, stuff like that."
On the recruiting front, things have yet to get started, but Sheehy isn't focused on that.
"I can't control what schools think about me. All I can do is go out and perform to the best of my ability, to do my job and focus on my team and the rest will have to take care of itself," Sheehy noted. "I love the game of football and I just love to have fun. Making things happen is what I like to do, so I'm just going out and having fun."
As a prep, Sheehy didn't play football, devoting his time to the hardwood instead of the gridiron.
"I had never played football until I got here to Phoenix," Sheehy said. "I came out here (from Florida) to play basketball, but then I decided to try out for football and it turned out there was a place for me, so I just stuck with that.
"I love the football vibe. I love the intensity of the game and the physicality of it."
Sheehy is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in May and he will have three years to play two following the 2016 football season.
