Welcome To My Website

Hi Friends!

If you are taking the time to read this, you are now on my new website. It is really weird for me to write MY WEBSITE since I never thought I would need one until about 7 months ago. When I started rewriting Same Name Different Game last August, I had no idea what kind of journey this would take me on. Until then I had trouble networking, had never gone through the process of publishing a book on my own, and I had most definitely never thought about a business plan since I have a deep-rooted aversion to numbers. A marketing plan? Nah, never! And now we come to my website. Another first for me. Of course, I didn't do it on my own. I did, however, have to do a lot of research and experimenting before I could express what my ideas for the website could be. Some ideas were absolute crap...some were not bad...and a few were actually alright.

I would like to thank my Webdesigner Abdul who is located in Pakistan. Because of the time difference, it meant we had the occasional Skype meeting, and probably thousands of WhatsApp messages between the two of us. Surely, I drove him mad with my constant requests, changes, and suggestions but he always remained positive and patient. He also suggested that I read up on Coding and some other technical aspects he would be doing for the site. I think he figured out early on that I had no idea what I was doing. I didn’t need to be an expert, but I did need to have some basic knowledge.

One of the quotes from my coaching days that my players heard daily was, “Don’t do somebody else’s job (especially from the strong side, cuz my grandmother can hit that shot)!” These last months have shown me that there are many things I am not an expert at, but I have been VERY fortunate that the people I have hired to be the experts have done an outstanding job. I let them do their job, and I did mine, but during the process, we all learned from each other. I believe that is important. Since this is my first website and I am sure I will learn more about what I like and don’t like, what I want, and what is possible, I can imagine I will continue to write Abdul in the middle of the night and ask him to make changes and the website will evolve. For now, though, I am thrilled to see my name before the .com!!! I will be using this blog to periodically give a glimpse into various things on my mind, such as Same Name Different Game, other book ideas I have, or just random issues I feel like writing about. I hope you all enjoy it here on MY WEBSITE!!! Thank you for taking the time to read my words.

Testimonials

Drew Williamson

Virginia State University Assistant Coach

I really appreciate what Sean meant to my career. I was injured my first professional season playing in Germany, about 10 games in. Although I was having a really good season up until that point, I had no clue where my career was going to go after an 8-month injury. I healed up and was ready to go right around the time the new season was rolling around but I knew it would be difficult for me to get a new contract. Sean took a chance on me, and believed that I could be the starting point guard for his team. I still look back on that team and that season, and can honestly say we were extremely talented.

Arundhati Mukherji

Academic Dean

I have known Sean as a colleague at school for five years. What I like most about the Sean is his honesty and reliability.I tend to take him for granted sometimes because I know I can depend on him at all times. I trust him. Sean McCaw started at our school – CJD International School Braunschweig- Wolfsburg on August, 2016 as a Professional Educator (PE). The primary task of a PE is to act as a care-giver for the children, to support the students, win over their confidence and trust. From the very beginning his stature and positive self composure created an aura of positiveness around him.

Leon Kratzer

German National Team Player

I fondly remember the time when I started playing basketball. From the start I was dedicated but also nervous because I was now playing the sport that my father played professionally. I put a lot of pressure on myself because becoming a professional was my only goal. Sean was the perfect coach to guide my start. The impact Sean had on my journey was immense and it is possible that without him I wouldn’t be where I am right now. He showed me the way and gave me confidence.

Jori Davis

Professional Basketball Player & CEO WEVOLV

The sports industry landscape has the same pieces on the game board, yet how you maneuver through the game hasn't changed much. Sean’s book, "Same Name, Different Game" gives players insight into how to approach the steps of playing professionally abroad in a strategic manner. I truly think the concepts will forever be relatable.

Michael Coffin

Head Coach Kapfenberg Bulls Basketball Club

I have known Sean since 1995 when we were teammates for 4 seasons. Since then he has become an extended member of my family. He is one of the kindest people I know. Although he is no longer a coach, we still regularly exchange ideas on basketball and I trust his opinion. I am pleased to see he moved on to be an educator since working with children and taking younger players under his wing was something he did back in Austria as well.

Johannes Koedel

Insurance Salesman

It’s amazing how the years I spent as a player for Sean shaped my view about basketball. He gave me his trust from day one and challenged me not only to be the best basketball player I could be, but also the best person I could be. He saw little things that made me better as a player, but he also gave life advice that helped mold me. He was not only my coach. He always had an open ear for me, both on and off the court. My experiences with Sean is a big reason why I have become a youth coach.
