Sam Winkler, Uncommitted All Star
From the dynamic level of play Sam Winkler brings to the game, you’d be shocked to learn he’s only going to be a sophomore. With three more seasons of high school ball left, this kid has plenty of time to mature into something special.
Sam has been around the game for a long time, but he doesn’t keep his time exclusive to just lacrosse. He also serves as the center midfielder for his high school soccer team. He compares his aggressive speed of play on the pitch to the way he plays attack, drawing pressure and distributing the ball to create opportunities. When he’s not serving as a multi-sport athletes at Moorestown High School in New Jersey, he’s traveling the coast with Blue Star Lacrosse’s 2020 North squad.
“I’m right handed, but at age five when I first picked up a lacrosse stick it felt more natural in my left hand, so I stuck with that and I’m now comfortable playing with both hands.”

Sam Winkler According To Coach:
“Sam is a quick lefty attackman who is dangerous with and without the ball. He is knowledgeable about the game and can create offense dodging to score or feed. He has the potential to be a playmaker and QB of the offense.”
