Sean Jensen

Sean Jensen was born in South Korea, but he was raised in California, Massachusetts, and Virginia, mostly on or near military bases. Given his unique background, he’s always been drawn to storytelling, a skill he developed at Northwestern University and crafted for the last 16 years, almost exclusively covering the NFL. During his career, he’s fostered strong relationships with athletes in multiple sports, and he’s earned distinctions from the Illinois Associated Press, Minnesota Associated Press, Society of Professional Journalists, Pro Football Writers of America and Associated Press Sports Editors. In 2006, he received a special achievement award from the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Initially inspired by his two children, he created the Middle School Rules series, which tells the inspirational, childhood stories of professional athletes. He’s humbled each time he’s provided an opportunity to speak to children about values emphasized in the books, such as gratitude, kindness, and perseverance.
