Brothers and Lansdale natives Tim and Sean McDermott began their sporting careers in wrestling, but have found their true calling in other sports, writes Tim Graham for the Buffalo News.
Today, Tim is the chief business officer for the Chester-based Philadelphia Union of Major League Soccer, while Sean has worked his way up to become the head coach of the NFL’s Buffalo Bills.
The brothers started wrestling at very young ages, when their mother signed them up for the Great Valley Wrestling Association. At the time, Tim was six, and Sean was four.
Sean proved to be quite a wrestling prodigy, despite being smaller.
“He would push himself beyond the point you’d think he could go,” Tim said.
Sean managed to win his first state tournament at the age of five, and he followed it up with wins at seven and nine. He also took up football, becoming a star at La Salle High School, which he attended with his brother, thus beginning a journey to the position he holds now.
