Sam Gerlach is planning on transferring to Cal State Bakersfield within three semesters to study Petroleum Engineering. Sam started playing volleyball in high school and has continued to compete in open gyms and at sandy beaches in San Diego. He currently lives with his motivating roommate, TJ, and routinely visits his loving parents in La Mesa, as well as his inspirational big brother in San Francisco.
Coach Pratte's comments: "Sam continues to improve in volleyball everyday. This year, Sam will be playing right side and left side attacker. He is always sending the coaching staff inspirational quotes and videos. Since Sam has 100 percent bought into this program, he will be successful on the floor and in the game of life."
