Sean Morris is a Sarasota, Florida native who used to be a limo driver, but currently works at his Parents Auto shop. He's known for his signature headphones he always wears when he competes. He competed on American Ninja Warrior six times.
In the first competition, Sean had been given money to travel from Florida to Venice Beach and compete from a radio station. Sean did not disappoint, as he flew through the first five obstacles, despite a hard landing on the Rope Swing. Even though he missed an attempt at the Warped Wall, he pulled through and cleared with a time of 45.3 seconds, enough to place 15th overall.
In the semis, Sean had one of the strongest paces of the day. Despite a hard impact on the Rope Swing, he managed to pull off several impressive feats, including clearing the Spider Walk in five leaps and managing to pull off an unorthodox one-handed transition technique on the Jumping Bars. He cleared in 1:32.74 seconds, which put him in 4th place, and sent him to the finals, knocking Brian Kretsch out of the top 15.
However, in the finals, he struggled on the course, almost collapsing during the first stage and having to redo the third obstacle on the second stage, as he missed a tire. He was the slowest out of the 14 competitors who cleared both stages, placing 14th overall and not moving on.
In the second competition, he competed alongside fellow Floridian competitors Thomas Hall and Phil Defraties. He had the best run out of the three in qualifying, blazing through the course and placing 12th in the qualifiers. However, he failed the Salmon Ladder just inches from the Circle Slider in the semi finals, and did not move on to boot camp, placing 20th overall.
In the fourth competition, he beat the qualifier in 1:09 seconds. Although his finals run was cut, he dominated the finals course with the 7th fastest time, avenging his past two failures on the Salmon Ladder.
On stage one, he beat the first six obstacles, but stumbled on the Spin Bridge and failed.
In American Ninja Warrior 5, he completed the Miami qualifying course, placing 7th.
His run was not shown on broadcast, but he failed the Salmon Ladder for the third time in his career. However, because he placed 18th in the city finals, he made the top 3 from Miami that missed the cut and earned a wildcard spot to Las Vegas.
In the national finals, Sean failed the Half-Pipe Attack when he grasped the rope too low.
He returned for American Ninja Warrior 6 where he beat qualifying again in Miami, placing 34th.
In the city finals, he surprised many when he ditched his signature headphones. He ultimately failed on the Spider Climb, but went far enough to stay in the top 15. He placed 10th overall.
His run was cut on stage 1, but he timed out on the Final Climb (Rope Ladder) inches from the buzzer.
Sean mentioned officially retiring from ANW.
