Monrovian Connor Sams Signs Letter of Intent for Northwestern


Connor Sams of Monrovia, has signed a letter of intent to continue his soccer career at Northwestern (Iowa) beginning in the fall of 2014.

Sams, the son of Todd and Maureen, is a 5-11 defender/midfielder from Monrovia High School in California. He has earned four letters and was a part of a 18-4-5 Monrovia team that won their league championship last season. Sams finished with six assists and was named a First Team All-Rio Hondo League as a junior and was an Honorable Mention as a sophomore.

A scholar-athlete all four years at Monrovia, Sams has also been named to the National Honor Society, National French Honor Society, and is a member of the California Scholarship Federation. Sams plans to major in Public Relations/Sports Management while at Northwestern.

"Connor is a smart and tough defender who can play centrally or on the outside," said head coach Dan Swier. "He has a strong soccer pedigree and will help us as we look for players who can replace the likes of Matt Dowie and Justin Lehman. Connor is a great addition to our program and our school."

Northwestern College is a NAIA school located in Orange City, Iowa.
