Equally talented with the stick in both his left and right hand, Sam is one of the rare offensive players who cannot be defended by focusing on one attribute. He comes complete with a skill set that is multi-dimensional, including the shooting prowess to score on the run or to bring blistering heat if he is allowed to set his feet and step into his shot. Sam’s physical development has been more than noticeable: through his commitment to the weight room he has become one of the top 5 strongest men in the program.
