Sean Praven joined longtime coaching and playing partner Dan Powers at Seattle University and the teamwork that the two take to the field is apparent after the first nine seasons of success for the Redhawks.
Praven has coached with Powers for the past 13 years after joining his staff at Lindbergh High School. Praven continued the upward climb to Seattle University and will continue on in his tenth season as a collegiate assistant coach. Praven and Powers have also played on the same men's fastpitch team for the past 16 years, including their current club Cleon's from Tacoma, Wash.
Praven's primary duties include coaching the infield and serving as the first base coach. His playing background is primarily the middle infield and he will work with the technique of Seattle's slap hitters as well as base running.
Praven earned his bachelor's degree in liberal arts from Eastern Washington University in 1994. He lives in Kent with his wife Tara and their son Tyler, 14.
