Martinez about Samantha: “Sam is one of those players that is very deceiving to opponents. Don’t let her size fool you! Not only is she a great catcher, but she also has a very powerful bat at the plate. Sam will be a huge asset to us behind the plate working with the pitchers. Her vocal leadership is exactly what the infield will need to be successful throughout the season. Sam brings a year of collegiate experience to the 2016 season after starting for ABAC last season. The younger players will be looking to Sam for guidance and leadership this season.”

High School: Samantha played for North Murray High School as a four year varsity starter and was part of a 3-AAA Region Runner up team; which made it to the Sweet Sixteen.

Personal: Samantha was born on July 3, 1996 to Cathy and Darren Stafford. Samantha was born and raised in Chatsworth, Ga. and has one brother. She enjoys playing softball and hanging out with friends and family. Samantha is majoring in Agribusiness and Economics.

Why ABAC? “I chose ABAC because I had the opportunity to continue what I love to do: play softball. The team is very welcoming and Coach loves us “like her own” and we are one big family. Being 4 hours from home, I feel as if ABAC is my home away from home. The campus is so beautiful and the southern hospitality is everywhere.”
