06/29/2016 - 2016 Under Armour Showcase: Baseball Factory's National South This natural leader behind the plate has the tools to go along with the intangibles. He's a tough backstop who takes charge. He works around the ball to create good angles to block. He has a rocket arm and great footwork on throws that makes him downright scary to run on (1.81-1.96 pop times). At the dish, Sam has serious pull side power that comes from a swing with good bat speed. His hips and hands stay connected to create a fluid setup, load and swing and drive the ball all over the yard. He has the makings of an elite catcher in all facets at whatever level he decides to play at next.
