It was hilarious teaching her how to drive a Manual vehicle. She probably wouldn't think the experience was very funny however.

Strong

What is your favorite memory of Samantha?
When we were in the mall in Evansville, Indiana for the National Championship game and a couple of the girls and guys wanted to stunt...well lets just say her stunt didn't go as planned and was very awkward looking. I got a picture of it and posted it on facebook and twitter. I'm not sure I have ever laughed that hard in my life.

Her ability to lead in any game day situation, step up to anything that is asked of her, and is never afraid to lead by example. She is one of my strongest coed and all girl stunters.
