Sean McGrath is a professional football player in the US. He quit playing last year to concentrate on his art but found he missed Football too:
McGrath, who graduated from Henderson State with a degree in art, used the time away from football to rediscover his creative side.
The native of Mundelein, Ill., began putting together a portfolio and attending lectures while living in Chicago with a goal of pursing a master’s degree in art.
“When I was living in the city, I was mostly working with paint and charcoal,” McGrath said. “I was pretty much living at the Art Institute (of Chicago), kind of just absorbing what was going on there. The art scene in the city, it’s just great.”
But as time went on during the football season, he began missing the game and made the decision to return.
“I started to realize we only get one life to live and I may as well live in the now,” McGrath said.
The Chiefs reinstated McGrath from the reserve/did not report list on April 15, 2015 before waiving him, which made McGrath a free agent.
