Devonte Sampson- Football
Freshman defensive back Devonte Sampson has earned male athlete of the week honours for his standout performance on Friday night as the Mounties defeated the Saint Mary’s Huskies 29-15.
Sampson had two interceptions in the game, including one that he ran back 57 yards for a touchdown, which was a crucial point early in the third quarter. Sampson also had one pass breakup and two tackles in helping the Mounties defense really limit the Huskies offense.
