Athlete of the Week: Isaiah Sampson


Some early-season injuries have forced Humboldt State men’s basketball to go with a much younger and inexperienced line-up. Enter freshman Isaiah Sampson. The freshman from Camus, Washington is getting more playing time and making an impact on the court.

Sampson was also injured to start the season but now is healthy and showing why the coaching staff brought the 6-6 forward to the North Coast. Sampson’s best game this season came back on November 8. He scored 11 points and had 8 rebounds in a victory over Cal State Los Angeles.

Sampson told Redwood News he knows nothing is given and he has to show his coaches and teammates that he belongs on the court.

The Lumberjacks return to action Saturday night hosting Stanislaus.
