Sam Diamond

Junior at Whitefish Bay High School

When/Why began coxing: 

Did Learn-to-row the summer before freshman year with my brother.  I loved it, he hated it.  Started coxing right away.

Future plans: 

I would like to have an opportunity to be a coxswain in college.

Favorite aspect of coxing: 

I am a very quiet guy.  Being a coxswain has given me an opportunity to show a different side of myself.  I have enjoyed learning leadership skills.

Favorite rowing season & why: 

I like the spring season.  Sprints are much more competitive races and are much more fun to cox.

Favorite race & why: 

The Twin Cities race is my favorite.  I like the beach dock and the water is always warm.  Cincinnati is also a favorite because teams from all over the midwest participate and give us another level of competition

Interests/hobbies outside of practice:

Listening to music, playing guitar and hanging out with my family.

Favorite quote:
