Georgetown men’s soccer standout Sean O’Hearn signs first pro contract
O’Hearn was one of four roster additions for the squad ahead of the 2021 season.
The defender missed the fall campaign as Athletics activities were on pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2019, O’Hearn played a significant role in the program’s first NCAA Championship in a thrilling 3-3 double overtime victory as GU prevailed 7-6 in penalty kicks.
O’Hearn started all 24 games for the Hoyas a season ago with four assists to his credit. The backline combined for 13 shutouts for the year. A starter since his freshman year, the Mountville, Pa. native has appeared in 62 games with 61 starts and five assists in his time on the Hilltop. He was the BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week on 9/10/19 and named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll for the week of 11/8/19. As a rookie, O’Hearn was named to the BIG EAST All-Freshman Team.
Along with Georgetown’s third NCAA national championship in school history, the Hoyas set a new program record for wins in a season finishing the year with a mark of 20-1-3 and finished the season on a 17-game unbeaten streak dating back to September 24 at Louisville. The squad also won the BIG EAST Regular Season as well as the BIG EAST Championship for the third-consecutive year.
In his time on the Hilltop, the team earned three NCAA Tournament berths advancing to the Round of 16 three times, the quarterfinals twice and capping off his career with the championship.
O’Hearn will graduate this month with a degree in marketing.
