At 6’1” and 215 lbs, Sean Fisher was a solid defensive tackle, a sure-handed receiver, strong blocker, and two-year starter at tight end during the ’91 & ’92 seasons.  Several of North’s talented stable of running backs, including Hall of Famers Pat Bannon and Dan Feid, benefited from key blocks by ‘Fish’.  Strong, quiet, and dependable, Sean was described by assistant coach Paul Sullivan as “the consummate Red Rocketeer who was smart, a great teammate, with a great work ethic”.  Equally as important as Sean’s physical capabilities, it was these character traits that showed his true value in leading North Attleboro through one of its most trying seasons over the past 35 years.

In an opening game 42-16 victory over Bishop Feehan in 1992, Fisher was the star of a first half drive that saw him catch 3 passes covering 65 yards, including one for a 16 yd TD with 21 seconds before halftime.  Just days after that victory, however, North’s entire starting backfield was lost for the year due to disciplinary reasons.  It soon became a painful season plagued by turnovers with younger players forced into action, including 3 starting freshmen in the backfield during one stretch of the season.

Despite these frustrating circumstances, Sean continued to excel on both sides of the ball and lead by example.  In a 14-14 tie vs Oliver Ames, Fish had one QB sack, 51 yards receiving, and he “overpowered a would-be-Tiger tackler enroute to the end zone”.  Against King Philip Sean blocked one XPt and had 116 yards receiving, and in a thrilling victory over Attleboro in his final game, it was a “superb block by Fisher at the Attleboro 40” that allowed North’s fullback to scoot 57 yards for a TD right before halftime.  Having entered that Thanksgiving game with a 2-6-1 record against the 8-1 Super Bowl-bound Bombadiers, Fisher also helped force 10 turnovers on defense as the Rocketeers stunned Attleboro 19-16 in what will forever be known to Big Red faithful as the “Miracle in the Mud”.

Noted head coach Ray Beaupre:  “Sean was as good a leader as we’ve had here.  He was the one steady force we could count on both offensively and defensively.”

For his outstanding senior season Sean was named to The Sun Chronicle, Hockomock League, and Boston Globe Div III All Star teams.  He was also North’s Offensive Player of the Year and recipient of the Teammate Award.  

Sean later went on to have a very successful playing career in college as a 3-year starter at tight end for Middlebury College.
