Money quote: Sam provided some insight to his high school newspaper about coming from a small high school to Division One

“The main thing that took me far was my academics. I don’t think many kids realize how far good grades in high school can take you [for sports],” Warren said. “If you’re diligent in the stuff that you do in high school, build a resume and stay focused in school, it opens doors for you. Without my academics or my test scores, there’s no way I would have been able to play on the football team.””
