What made you decide you wanted to be a football player?

Being a football player was something that I always wanted to do growing up. I would walk around holding my Michael Vick football in my hand and even take it to school with me. Growing up in Miami I would always watch the U Of Miami and the Florida Gators which I became a fan and watching Sean Taylor play helped my decision much clear.

How do you handle challenges both in life and on the football field?

I handle challenges by taking a day at a time, making sure I live in the moment, and most of all control what I can control. These three methods helped me throughout my journey between high school, all through Juco, and finishing my career at a Div. 1.

What sets you apart from other wide receivers?

Route running, great hand & eye coordination, great feet, knowledge of a pro style offense, coverage recognition, and also being a returner gives me an advantage making me reliable all around.

What do you think are the keys to success on the football field?

In my opinion it would be football IQ and technique when it comes to a position you play. Having the ability to read coverage and execute your assignment all around at a high level will create success for you. Especially, cutting up film against your opponents and yourself.

What is your favorite route and why?

The whole route tree is my favorite because I love running every single route, I believe running every route gives me an advantage over DBs and other receivers.

How are you planning to prepare for the draft?

My off-season plans are to get invited to at least one bowl game. Which I just attended the FCS National Bowl in Daytona Beach, Fl and will also be attending the CGS Showcase In Forth Worth in January. Looking to see if I will be participating in the Tropical Bowl but if not just really dial in & focus on my pro-combine training to knock my 40 time down from a 4.45 to a low 4.4 high 4.3 and make sure my nutrition is up to part for me to perform at an elite level.

What are your favorite moments from your football life?

My favorite moments are just enjoying the process and mostly trusting the process. Having the ability to let God work in his favor and being grateful for every opportunity I earn.

What should we know about Sam Flowers the person?

I will bring consistency, swag, loyalty, and being a leader will give me the ability to help teammates around me play at an elite level. Because I play with grit, a dog mentality, attitude, and I am determined to win each of my 1v1 battles. This will also help me off the field when it comes to meeting new people and having a conversation with important people.

If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?

Stefan Diggs & Jarvis Landry. My reason why is because they both went late in the draft and had to fight their way up to be considered the best in the league. They play with grit, attitude, and they are always grinding. They are determined to win each of there 1v1 battles. Plus they are legit DOGS! I consider myself a DOG!!

What would a team get in a player like you?

They would be getting an highly reliable player, I can play every position on the field, my knowledge of the game is at an high level and will be elite. I can break down coverage, very detail oriented when it comes to note taking, and being able to adjust at a pro level. I should be drafted because I will earn everything that will be given to me, I have the IT factor, and being placed in the right situation for success will be beneficial for not only me but for the team who gives me an opportunity to become great.

What type of energy do you bring onto the football field?

I Bring That DOG Mentality! Get the Job done!

What do you love about the game of football?

I love winning, learning lessons, and building friendships that will last for a life time.
