Samson “Sammy” Sergi is a product of Broad Run High School in Ashburn, Virginia, where he played football and soccer. From a young age, his goal was to play at a professional level, and at 25, he can say that he has accomplished this goal. In fact, his first time playing was five minutes away from where he currently plays professionally for Loudoun United.
Sammy has always had a ball at his feet, but has had to overcome injuries and setbacks on his road to becoming a professional athlete. Sammy was 5’5″ until his junior year of high school. He had zero division 1, 2, or 3 offers going into his senior year. He continually struggled to be “good enough” in the eyes of his coaches.
When one of his best friends passed away, he lost his mental inhibitions and set forth on a rise through the ranks of collegiate soccer, eventually making it to the top of his personal mountain. Listen to Sammy’s incredible story on the latest episode of the Get Back With Dombek podcast.
