Bridgewater Emery
Sam is involved in football, basketball, track, student council, journalism, National Honor Society, and church youth group. Sam is also a mentor in our school's mentor-mentee program and he was most recently selected as a Character on Track student. Sam is a 4.0 student who has challenged himself academically by taking a rigorous course schedule including 15 college credits through one semester of his senior year. Sam had a tough start to his senior year as he was our starting quarterback and the 2nd game of the season he broke his tibia and fibula in a game ending his senior football season. Sam was being recruited to play collegiate football so this was a tough injury physically and mentally. However, Sam accepted it like a very strong man and is progressing in his recovery and will be on the basketball floor this winter. Sam's character during this trying time was inspiring for all - no excuses, no feeling sorry for himself and he served as an encouraging peer coach on the sidelines.
Sam Hofer is from Bridgewater, SD, located within Southeastern Electric Coop, a Touchstone Energy Cooperative.
