WR Sammie Long reflects after season 

November, 13, 2012
If there is one lesson Sammie Long learned during his final season at Lakewood (Wash.) Lakes High School it is that “pressure actually does burst pipes.”

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound receiver wanted his senior sendoff to be one he would always remember. He put pressure on himself to set a standard through leadership and performance.

But his desire to be the best produced more pressure than he was prepared to handle. He struggled early. He learned a lesson. Now, as he shifts his attention to his college career he will take what he was taught to the next level.
