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.
