“He’s a very coachable kid,” third-year coach Allen Talley said of Warren. “He wants to learn and he wants to work. A lot of the younger guys actually want to work pretty hard, but Sam has really worked hard this summer, worked hard in practice to try to get better every single day, and he’s been doing that.”
