Autism affects one in 54 boys and one of those is Grassfield Junior Sean Harrington.  But the disorder has not slowed him down any. In fact, he was less than a second away from making the state tournament!

Besides swimming, Sean is an accomplished trumpet player.  He has been second chair at the region and state levels.

But swimming his is first love and he is focused breaking his school record.
