Sam's Story

Welcome to my personal basketball website! I'm Sam, a passionate basketball player from Poughkeepsie, New York. Ever since I was young, basketball has been my life's focus. Since highschool, my dream was to play professionally. Since then I have relentlessly trained alongside my siblings, Hayden and Kate. After making a name for myself in Division III at Wesleyan University, I earned multiple Division I offers and landed at Stetson University. Now, I'm determined to pursue a professional career, either overseas or in the G League. This website is a platform to share my basketball journey, training insights, and the invaluable lessons I've learned along the way.

Check out my Stetson Highlights!
