Sam has a life-long love for the sport of Basketball and wishes to “give something back” to the game that supported him through his youthful years. As the recipient of a sporting Scholarship in high-school, Sam understands the importance of funding for younger participants of the game of Basketball that may not otherwise be able to reach their full potential.
