Sam, sophomore, is new to the Amplifier staff this year. He aspires to take pictures and work on film this year. Sam has experience in film as he took a class on it last year. He is also hoping to improve his writing skills this year. Not only is Sam academically well-versed, but he is also very sports oriented. In his spare time, he loves to play sports, which he ends up doing a large amount of time outside of school. He has played basketball since first grade, lacrosse since second grade and football since third grade. On top of his obsession with athletics, Sam also has a passion for food. His favorite food of all time is pepperoni and bacon pizza. Over the summer, the most exciting thing that Sam did was drive to Iowa with his family, where his mother’s fiancé lives. On this road trip, they drive through a whopping twelve states. One main landmark that they visited was Yellowstone National Park. Sam enjoyed himself here, but later found out that he had narrowly escaped danger, as a bear attacked a group of people the day after he left Yellowstone. After visiting other monuments and landmarks like Mt. Rushmore, and Crazy Horse, Sam and his family had driven a total of about 4,000 miles.
