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.

Mental resilience not only helps a player experience more success, but it allows one to enjoy the process more as well. The biggest difference that training my mind has had in my life is that it’s helped me remain more present in the ups and downs of soccer, rather than being at the mercy of the rollercoaster nature of the sport. I look forward to helping other players get the most out of soccer by focusing on their mentality!
— Sam Junqua
I admire Sam’s maturity when it comes to his mindset and focus. He’s someone who’s been training his brain for a while now and understands how necessary and integral mindset and mental health are for performance and wellbeing. He makes our team better and stronger, and I’m so excited to witness the lives he will touch as he continues to use his platform and story to help others!
