Quoting Coach Maisonneuve–Sam Mason

“We are excited to have Sam join our program. Sam is a very good soccer player and has a natural feel for the game. Technically, he is a very good passer and does an excellent job getting the ball where it needs to go.  Tactically, he reads the game very well and will do a good job for us in the midfield. Most importantly Sam is a great teammate and will do whatever it takes to help this program be successful.”
