The forward scored three goals in the Jaguars' 5-0 victory over Glasgow Tuesday afternoon.
Sam's second goal came off a bounce pass which he guided into the cage with his head, and the senior says sometimes you have to be creative to score goals.
"When you have a keeper coming at you at full speed and players running you down, you need to think quick. The head was the closest body part to the ball, and it had to go in the net, so I did that."
Appo coach Adam Bear tells WDEL that Sam brings a lot to the table for the Jags.
"He's a great finisher, he has good vision. He's athletic, he can win 50-50 balls, he's can give assists, but he's a great finisher."
Sam contributes his success to improvement in the mental part of his soccer game.
"I became a better player up there (mentally) than with my feet. It's more of how I play and my decisions. I take it more serious this year, I took it serious before, but this is my senior year."
Sam Jester says he'd like to play soccer in college, but isn't sure where. He says his favorite class at Appoquinimink is definitely history.
"It's interesting to me. Math is just numbers, but I love learning about the past, it's just interesting to me."
