Q: What is your favorite subject in school?

A: AP language and basketball class.

Q: What other activities do you participate in?

A: I enjoy playing video games and basketball with my friends.

Q: Person who has helped you succeed the most?

A: My parents have helped me succeed the most. They have supported me in everything I do and have helped shape me into the leader I am, on and off the field.

Q: Do you have a pre- or post-game tradition? What is it?

A: Before every game I like to come home and rest for a couple hours. Then I eat a PB&J and drink a glass of milk about an hour and 15 minutes before the game. Lastly, I listen to the same three songs on the way to the field before every game.

Q: Song you currently can’t get enough of?

A: “Feeling” by Juice WRLD

From the Sideline

“Sam has scored in each of the last three games and has four goals, seven assists thus far this season. He is our overall team leader in scoring. Sam seems to be involved in the play all over the field due to a tremendous work rate. He can keep the ball soundly when surrounded by pressure – amazing.

Q: Person who has helped you succeed the most?

From the Sideline

“Autumn went 5-for-7 last week at the plate, and as a pitcher she went 12 innings in pitching two complete-game shutouts as the Ravens beat Enumclaw 1-0 and Todd Beamer 10-0. Autumn is a second-year captain and leads by example on the field. She doesn’t care who gets the credit as long as the team is in good spirits and playing well.”
