What Coach Shane had to say about Sam:

Sam Keith has always been one of my most favorite players.  Since, he first started soccer, he has demonstrated an enviable motor moving up and downfield.  He plays all positions with a passion, and is absolutely fearless on offense and defense.  He will take shots to the face in goal, tackle players twice his size, and attack swarming defenders.  He is the consummate coach's player, always seeking to improve his game.  He takes instruction without argument, but pauses to analyze new strategies and skill development.  He is truly everyone's teammate.
