Houston Dynamo FC defender Sam Junqua becomes the newest ambassador for our rapidly expanding sports mindset agency. The young Major League Soccer midfielder links with Walker Zimmerman, Cari Roccaro, Rene Ortiz, Vicky Bruce, Mike McGinty, Tim Bennett and Brandt Bronico.
Sam was selected with the 8th overall pick of the 2019 MLS SuperDraft by the Houston Dynamo after a stellar collegiate career for Cal-Berkeley. Sam’s a versatile young defender who can play left back or center back and is entering his 3rd season with the Dynamo. When he’s not playing soccer he loves to spend time outdoors, with friends and family over good food, and to be surrounded by animals. Sam’s an avid learner and loves working on his personal health and self development. Sam is also represented by another one of our partners, First Wave Sports International, who provides our services for their entire coach and player clientele.
