​​Sean McGuire is a 3 year starter who was named 3-time All-MVFC, finished #2 all-time in career passing yards in the MVFC, and is Western Illinois' all-time leader in TDs, passing yards, and pass completions.

Sean's combination of size and athleticism and intelligence make him an extremely dependable and durable quarterback, having started 38 games in his collegiate career.

Sean's coaches have great things to say about his quarterbacking and leadership abilities:

"Sean McGuire is one of the finest leaders I have ever been associated with at any level and any position. A natural born leader and winner on and off the field.

He possesses all the qualities you want at QB. Size, arm strength, accuracy and every intangible a coach would want at the position."
Charlie Fisher (WIU Head Coach, 2016-2017, current WR Coach at Arizona State)

Sean will also be working with Coach Steve Fairchild in pre-Draft workouts in Denver, CO at Landow Performance.

Born February 14, 1996 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin… active in speaking at D.A.R.E. graduations across Milwaukee county… No. 1 sports highlight was, “Going into my senior year I wanted to leave a mark for underclassmen to follow and remember.

I know they will be successful in the future, that means a lot to me.”… his brother and nephew have been a major influence, “They have been through so much in their own personal lives and they have made me so proud. I want to make them as proud as they have made me.”… most admires his HS head coach Louis Brown, “I have never played for a coach like him, and I would never have wanted to play for anyone else.
