Sean Dwyer, a 6-foot-6 forward with Stagg basketball, is one of the area’s top scorers and three-point threats.

The senior, who resides in Palos Park and graduated from Palos South, has yet to decide on a college.

State title game. You’re in it. What team would you like most to beat for the state championship? Why?

Simeon. They’ve won three straight state titles and have a rich history.

What’s in your iPod?

Mostly country (Jason Aldean, Eric Church). I have some rap (Eminem) to get me pumped up before games.

You’re stranded on a deserted island. You can have an endless supply of one food. What would it be?

Barbecue chicken pizza.

If you could have your pick, what celebrity would you choose as your prom date?

Taylor Swift.

Ten years from now, when you’re talking about coach John Daniels, what will first come to mind?

His attention to fundamentals. We work so much on fundamentals and making each player better every day.

What’s your go-to move in a game of H-O-R-S-E?

My left-handed shot. Not a lot of people can shoot with both hands.

What’s the most important lifelong value your parents instilled in you?

Try to find enjoyment in everything you do.

Given the chance, what person, dead or alive, would you most like to meet? Why?

Gordon Howard. When he played in the national championship at Butler, my grandma said we looked similar. A lot of people have told me that. I’d like to ask him tips on how he practices and how to get better.

What will you be doing when you celebrate your 10-year reunion at Stagg?

I hope to be working in the front office of a professional basketball or baseball organization.

As told to Pat Disabato
