Larry Sekely works and lives in the Tampa Bay area with his wife of 19 years, Barbara, his son, Jason, age 16, and his daughter, Jessica, age 13. He was introduced to paintball by Jason, who was 10 at the time, shortly after attending a friends’ birthday paintball party at a local field. Over the next several years, Larry and his son played paintball in all their spare time and eventually began to participate in local tournaments. In the summer of 2003, they formed Team ICE with a couple of Jason’s friends. By the summer of 2004, the team had grown in size and skill level and had finished at the top in tournaments in Miami, Port Canavaral, as well as Tampa. Team ICE disbanded shortly after the tragic death of their co-captain, Chris Hidalgo, in July 2004.
Larry currently plays for “Men at Work”, a team comprised of the fathers (and in one case the grandfather) of younger paintball enthusiasts. The team has a minimum age requirement of 40 years old. They just started playing NPPL and PSP tournaments through out the state of Florida with plans to go national in 2006.
