Stephen Sheehan

Stephen Sheehan began his sportswriting career as a high school student covering sports for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel through a student outreach program. He wrote for Bleacher Report and Fan Rag Sports, and joined Sportscasting in 2020. Stephen specializes in covering the NFL, particularly the New England Patriots, and the NBA for Sportscasting.
