Foxboro’s Ashley Sampson (class of 2018) has verbally committed to play basketball collegiately at reigning NE-10 champion, Adelphi University, in Garden City, New York.
Sampson, a 5’10” guard, just concluded a season for the history books at Foxboro High School. The Warriors finished the season with a 22-3 record and won the D2 south section over Westwood.
Sampson, the Hockomock league MVP, finished the season with 478 points and led the conference in scoring with an average of 19.1 per game.
Foxboro’s season ended at the TD Garden with a loss to Arlington Catholic. During that game, Sampson nailed a deep 3-pointer to score her 1000th point.
Sampson is a player that is capable of playing both guard spots. She is a premier ambidextrous point guard on the AAU circuit with NEX Elite and is an elite scorer and defender.
I had the absolute pleasure of coaching Ashley in AAU for four years and Adelphi head coach Missy Traversi is getting an excellent player that thrives in the biggest games. She was a star player that led our AAU team to multiple state titles.
Despite her immense talent, Sampson is a humble superstar that is all business and ego-less. I look forward to seeing her play at the next level under Traversi’s guidance.
