Coach Rick Ricard states, “As a coach, I definitely appreciate the skill Sam brings to the team, but one thing I have seen as a huge improvement in, is Sam's leadership role. This season he has really turned into the captain I have wanted to see out of him. He has really matured and is a great leader on and off the court”.
