Sean Penney is the winner of the most voted upon CPTV UChoose Student-Athlete of the Week poll in history. The Simsbury Boys Lacrosse star received 50% of the 440,740 votes cast.
The senior scored four goals, including the game-winner in overtime as the Trojans edged Guilford in their season opener Saturday, 8-7.
Frankie Graziano interviewed Sean Penney at Simsbury’s Holden Field, which you can watch above, to talk about winning the award and scoring the game-winner against Guilford. The two also discuss Penney’s big college plans to play more than just college lacrosse at Wesleyan University.
