McGrew finished his career with 5,762 yards with a 9.1 yards per carry average, plus he helped his school to a record-setting 21-game league win streak with three consecutive Trinity League titles.  The Trinity League is considered one of the best high school football leagues in America.

"Sean McGrew is easily one of the most impressive student-athletes that I have encountered during my career as a high school football coach,” said St. John Bosco head football coach Jason Negro. "He is the most complete and competitive football player in our highly successful program. Sean has excelled brilliantly over the past four seasons playing one of the most difficult schedules in high school football.”


Not only does McGrew, who will attend the University of Washington on a football scholarship, leave St. John Bosco unbeaten as a Trinity League performer, but he also left the field with twelve school records.  He was named All-Trinity League as a sophomore, junior and senior.


McGrew is the third winner of the National Senior Football Player of the Year Award from California.


This the 16th year straight year the NHSCA will honor achievers in the high school athletic community nationwide with its Athlete of the Year Award in 20 boys’ and girls’ sports.  Other winners will be announced throughout the rest of the 2015-2016 school year.
