Several callers on various talk shows on Wednesday, February 13, 2013 paid homage to fallen Liberian soccer star, Frank Jean Seator. Seator was pronounced dead at 9:37 AM at the Duside Hospital in Division 45 in Firestone, Margibi County.
The death of the soccer star came amidst series of rumors that he had died even before the day he was confirmed dead by medical doctors. The late Seator played alongside Liberia’s soccer legend Ambassador George Manneh Weah and Liberia’s most celebrated soccer star, James “Salinsa” Debah on the most famous “George Weah 11” as a striker.
The late Liberian soccer star played 15 games for the national soccer squad-the Lone Star and scored 5 goals.
He played for Liberia’s soccer giant Might Barrolle before moving on to the Middle East and Asia, where he played for several clubs.
According to Liberian soccer fanatics, who called on the various talk shows, the contributions of Seator as it relates to the performance of the national team and football in general will forever be remembered. “Frank Seator will forever remain in our eyes. He was a great player. His role on the national team is something that is unforgettable,” said one Jerry Kollie, who called on the New Dawn on Fabric Radio.
Some of the callers also urged the Government of Liberia (GoL) and sports authorities not to only look at Seator as a football player, but as a true national hero who devoted his time and career to his country.
