This week’s featured athlete is Sam Clayborn, a 6’4” senior swing man for the CCC men’s basketball team. Sam is a lock down defender, who usually draws the opponents’ top player. This season, Sam second on the team in scoring, averaging 14.6 points per game. He is also tied for the lead in assists (62), and steals (17).
Last week, in the game against the Bethany College Swedes, Sam had 25 points, including the game winner with two seconds left in regulation, and four assists, to lead the Tigers to an 86-84 victory.
When he is not on the basketball court, Sam enjoys watching Netflix, playing cards, and spending time with his girlfriend Kelsey. His favorite Bible verse is Matthew 23:12, “For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”
