An up-and-coming class of 2020 guard in Washington, 5-foot-10 combo-guard Eric Sheehan could be a name to watch the net two seasons.

The Auburn Mountainview sophomore is a skilled and versatile guard, who can handle the rock as adeptly as he finds open teammates.

“I consider myself a strong ball-handler, and I like to attack and try and dish and try and make the best plays I can for others,” said Sheehan. “I’m working on being a scorer, but that wasn’t really my role this year.”

His sophomore season with the Lions wrapped up recently, his role was to come off the bench and fill in for two of the best players in the league.

“I was just doing what I was told to do; take care of the ball, defend,” said Sheehan.  

“I thought I could have played better, but I played a lot better than I did as a freshman. I’m going to focus on being a better scorer, and hopefully that can be my role next season.”

But before his junior season, he’ll have a spring and summer ahead of him to improve. It would be his 16U grassroots season. Sheehan has played with Elite Sports Academy in the past.

“I’m in the process of figuring out who I want to play for or if I even want to play AAU. I might just train on my own,” said Sheehan.  

“I want to work on shooting, and become the best shooter I can be. I want to be able to score no matter who’s guarding me. And just be able to do anything out on the floor; be a true scorer, a true ball-handler and be able to handle whatever comes at me.”
