LINX Summer Basketball Camp Coach
Sam Taub, born and raised in Brookline, MA, has been playing basketball since he was in elementary school. His goal to play high school basketball alluded him until he made the Brookline Warriors JV team in his junior year. As a senior, however, Sam's development and hard work earned him a starting spot on the Varsity squad, a member of the 2004 team that played for the State finals at the Boston Garden in March of that year. As a senior, Sam was awarded the 2004 "Coaches Award” for his positive role on the basketball team. Sam received a scholarship to Drew University in Madison, NJ, where he was a starter for the men's basketball team for two seasons, before transferring to the University of Massachusetts/Amherst to focus on his degree in Social Research and Data Analysis.
