Recruiting Interview: FB/LB Sean Badeaux, Holy Savior Menard High School
by Jace LeJeune
FB/LB Sean Badeaux from Holy Savior Menard High School is one of those old throwback tough guys that played in the 1940’s and 1950’s. He’s tough and plays the whole game both ways. He plays two positions where you have to be the hammer not the nail in order to succeed and Sean is successful at both. He’s extremely underrated and is a hard worker. There should be more colleges looking at Sean by the end of this year. Read more about Sean in today’s recruiting interview.
