SE Badger 7v7: Sammie Burroughs
Posted May 4, 2011

Sammie Burroughs is the product of a football family. Growing up the son of a former NFL player, Sammie has learned the game from the inside out. Now Sammie plans to forge a path for himself in an effort to make his own football dreams come true. This past weekend, Sammie took part in the Badger Sport Southeast Regional 7-on-7 and did his part to help Team Mississippi.

"It's been a great experience," said Sammie. "I have been around this game my whole life. It's a pleasure to be a part of this."

Burroughs made some big plays and considering the competition, his confidence is soaring.

"I have been playing my role," said Sammie. "That's what I have always been taught to do, so that's what I have done.

"My dad has always told me that nothing is given to you. You have to earn everything."

Perhaps the best experience for Burroughs has been to have the chance to be one of the guys and be accepted as a peer despite his young age.

"My team has treated me well," said Sammie. "Everybody is easy to get along with and I am easy to get along with. It's a great weekend.

"Channing Ward and Justin Lucas are teammates and church members of mine. I have been friends with them my whole life."

Burroughs is a name to watch in the upcoming season as just a sophomore.
