Providence Journal catches up with two-sport standout Sean Wirth '10
The Providence Journal updates readers on the Bates doings of Sean Wirth ’10 of Barrington, R.I. During the fall, the 6-foot-7 Wirth was the leading NESCAC tight end with 40 receptions for 393 yards. Though reporter Mike Szostak points out that Bates won only a handful of games during Wirth’s career, the economics major says the scoreboard didn’t define his football experience. “The people on the team, the friends you make, the camaraderie, that’s the important part,” he tells Szostak. This winter, Wirth is a hard-working center for the basketball team. “He’s a warrior,” basketball head coach Jon Furbush ’05 tells Szostak. “He would do anything for Bates athletics.” View story from the Providence Journal, Dec. 21, 2009.
