Coaches Comments:
Northview High School Head Coach Aaron Wilkens wrote:

“Sam Nadel is a coach’s dream as a player. He is athletically skilled, but that only scratches the surface when it comes to his value for a team. Sam is a student of the game that is always striving to get better. He is competitive and will do whatever it takes to win. There is nothing more important to him than the score at the end of the game. Sam is one of the most reliable players that I have ever coached; on the rare instance that he does make a mistake, one can rest assured that he will not make the same mistake twice. A team cannot be successful without players with the mental makeup that Sam possesses. He is a player and person that I will vouch for any day of the week.”
