Welcome to The Buccaneer’s new sports column, “Breakfast with a Buc.” Each week, over a bagel breakfast, we’ll be chatting with an RBR student-athlete who is committed to play a sport at the college level next fall.
We sat down with senior Sean Naiman, who was a first team All-Shore and All-State defensive end for the division champ Bucs on the football field this season.
Name: Sean Naiman
Sports Played: Football
Committed to play: Football
College: Bucknell University (Lewisburg, Pennsylvania)
In five years, I’ll be: Graduated from Bucknell with either a bachelor’s or a master’s degree, hopefully doing something with regards to sports medicine or business
Bagel Order: Pork roll, egg and cheese on a poppy with salt,
pepper and ketchup
EB: Why Bucknell?
SN: I chose Bucknell because I thought it would give me the best academic opportunities out of all the schools I was choosing between. When I visited, I just fell in love with the school, and I knew I would do the best academically (there).
EB: What has RBR football taught you?
SN: It taught me the importance of teamwork and how to lead. Obviously, our season was a great season, and this year, we had the best teamwork, and it really showed on the field. It also taught me leadership because as a senior and a captain on the team, it really teaches you how to push others, and pushing others makes your team better.
EB: What’s your favorite RBR sports memory?
SN: The RBC game. Definitely. Running out onto the field and seeing all the fans, seeing everyone support us, that was amazing. Coming off with the win there was an amazing thing to see.
