I had the privilege of locking up with Sam. He is strong, and wrestled with great technique. We both got some submission holds on each other. Looking forward to wrestling him several more times!
Our match was a long time coming and well worth it. Easy to schedule and I was lucky enough to have this big strong guy on the mats. The right amount of intensity, and good defense. Good workout for both!
Very happy to have met and wrestled this legend. Sam is a powerfully built athletic man who knows how to wrestle. He is competitive, knowledgeable and safe. A great guy all around I recommend Sam wholeheartedly.
I had an amazing match with Sam! He has great strength and endurance. He is a super nice guy off and on the mat but he is a fierce competitor. I had formed a great bond with him with our online conversations and thst bond strengthened with meeting in person. We are already planning our rematch lol
Update: our recent rematch he surprised me with boxing gloves for us to go a few rounds of sparring. It was amazing and I'm happy he was my first match with gloves. Really great guy!
Amazing match with an amazing guy! It was so much fun tying up with this handsome, feisty wrestler. dnava20 came to wrestle and didn't let a size disadvantage get in his way. We did a lot of standup wrestling, uncharacteristic for both of us, but our equal height made it even more fun. He effectively countered all my moves, making me work hard to achieve anything. Remained in constant contact before the match. Sweet to talk to, tough to wrestle. Totally recommend!
Had a blast wrestling with this big fella. Very strong and fun guy to wrestle a gentle giant who made sure I got my workout for the day. Had a blast wrestling him and WrestleJ when they came to the north bay, definitely recommend Sam as well if your in his area.
What a great, aggressive wrestler. I think we both had enough experience to counter a lot of each other’s moves. I had a good time going back and forth with him. He’s a really nice guy and I can’t wait to wrestle him on the mats one day. I definitely recommend him.
After trying to arrange a match for so long, the stars finally aligned and we got together today. I had an outstanding time. WrestleJ is short, with solid powerful muscles, and wrestles quite aggressively. We went back and forth, and traded holds, but failed to establish a definitive winner. That will happen during our certain rematch. My wish is that we can wrestle on a regular basis.
Had a great time with Sam. He's very skilled, accommodating, and an absolute powerhouse. It was a sweaty struggle on my end while he was mostly in full control. I'd highly recommend Sam, and I look forward to our rematch.
Loved getting together with Sam to get a roll in! courteous and generous host and def had me sweating to work for this match. Don’t pass this guy up and can’t wait for a round 2!
I was fortunate that this handsome muscle stud made some time in his busy schedule to wrestle me. Arranging the match was easy, and we communicated freely prior to meeting. We went all out on the mats, as I spent most of the time trying to fight off his brute strength. We got all sweaty as we rolled around tapping each other out, me tapping much more than he did. An outstanding time with an outstanding guy!
Sam is recommended by michaelwood
Sam is a great wrestler...we also got to exchange some punches....stand up body boxing along with exchanging so punches while down on the mats....enjoyed every part of the match...and YES...it was a long time coming....and i def wanna get him back on the mats....
I’ve viewed Sam’s profile and recs from his opponents for many years. In our occasional messages I often asked him to reach out if he’s ever somewhat near Bham area. Last week, I was pleasantly surprised when he mentioned he’d be in town today and asked for a match. Truly honored to finally meet this fit, powerful, quality guy. I enjoyed rolling with his power, sharing a nice meal afterwards and getting to know each other over great conversation. Highly recommended. Here’s hoping our paths cross again.
If you look up "Southern gentleman" in the dictionary, next to it you will see a picture of bamabull. So easy to arrange our session, kept in touch the entire way. Wrestling this strong fireplug was great fun. I enjoyed my time with him and so will you.
Sam is recommended by NEwrestler84
Had a fun time rolling around with Sam at his place. Nice set up down in his basement. He has good defensive skills and will make you work. Easy going guy to talk to and set up a match with. Glad I was able to meet up before headed out west for the winter. Looking forward to when he gets back.
Had some good mat time with Sam. He shared alot of his knowledge from BJJ class with me. Definitely recommend him and would wrestle him again.
Sam is recommended by doyouevenwrestle
reached a big milestone here meeting with Sam. A definite learning experience about new moves, strength and weaknesses, offense and mostly defense, learning about myself and how much more I have to learn.
this super tall super strong guy taught me a lot today. totally kicked my ass (safe and sane of course) but also taught me how quickly people can connect with something in common and how easily strangers can become friends.
thank you Sam, it was a real experience.
doyouevenwrestle is recommended by Sam
After making a great connection during a long series of chats, our connection became stronger when we met in person. doyouevenwrestle is a standup guy who keeps his word and stays in touch. We had a spirited wrestling session, where I was totally distracted by his muscular arms and thick pecs. He's just starting out and will only get better, but his trash talking is already top-notch Lol. Do yourself a favor and wrestle him.
Sam is recommended by Wrestlingfan14
Sam drove over the rivers and through the woods to meet me while I was in Pennsylvania. I really appreciate his efforts, his time and his willingness to do it. He was kind and patient enough to teach me some BJJ techniques. Besides wrestling, we spent a great time talking about life. Don't miss the chance to meet this awesome man, who is very handsome, by the way ;-)
Wrestlingfan14 is recommended by Sam
We body-boxed, we wrestled, we ate, we talked, he put me to sleep with a relaxing massage. I had a great time with this handsome, multilingual man. He loves to wrestle and is eager to learn more. If he travels to your area, you should take him on.
Sam is recommended by Boxing Ike
Sam is a strong boxer and an all around awesome guy. Whether you're a veteran or beginner, if you're looking for a safe and fun match, send Sam a message. He invited me to meet up for a sparring session and was both patient and accommodating throughout both the setup and the actual meetup. He was quick to give helpful tips and compliments, and even though it was my first time he kept the matches fair and competitive. I would definitely make the trip again, and enthusiastically recommend Sam.
Boxing Ike is recommended by Sam
Boxing Ike fit me into his tight schedule and drove many hours to meet. We body boxed for a 4-round preliminary followed by a 10-round main event. He displayed great form and footwork, was aggressive, hit hard, made adjustments on the fly, and never backed down. When not boxing, I had some great conversations with this intelligent, articulate, personable, and handsome young man. I give Boxing Ike an enthusiastic recommendation.
Sam is recommended by hairysnogger
I finally had the opportunity to meet and wrestle Sam; we’ve been chatting online for years and never had the chance to connect till now. He is a great wrestler with powerful legs. Sam has many years of wrestling experience so he has lots of moves that will give you a good workout!!
We had a long fun session and will definitely meet him again.
I highly recommend Sam.
hairysnogger is recommended by Sam
I was fortunate that hairysnogger was visiting my area, and jumped at the chance to finally meet him. Setting up the match was super easy, as he remained in constant contact and responded quickly to my messages. We engaged in a fun and spirited battle for control and domination. He's one of the good guys!
Met up with Sam today. He is a great host, convenient location and plenty of space with mats. We we exchanged holds. We went round and round working up a good sweat and had a few laughs along the way. If you are in the area be sure to look him up. Looking forward to meeting up with him again for a group match with just a few friends.
Setting up a match with Muleman went quickly, and he remained in touch leading up to our meeting. This 6' 5" hunk towered over me; I'm usually the tall guy so that was a switch. We rolled around the mats and got sweaty, doing an impromptu combination of freestyle and submission. Great guy to talk to also. Full recommendation.
I finally got the chance to meet up with Sam today. For a person who hasn't done as much boxing as I have, he sure does hit hard. We did eight total rounds which were both competitive and fun. Afterwards, we wrestled where he was kind enough to show me pointers (that didn't stop him from tapping me out numerous times). It was a great time and I highly recommend him.
I had an awesome sweaty time with this handsome man. As thunderstorms raged outside, our fists were flying inside. He was kind enough to make all the arrangements. He was kind enough to allow me to survive 6 rounds of body boxing and 2 rounds with head shots. I exacted a measure of revenge when we wrestled, but found him to be a strong and determined opponent. Enthusiastic recommendation for Boxer VA!
This evening I had the pleasure of meeting and wrestling my namesake Sam as we always joke with each other and it was great he is great to talk to I could talk to him everyday if I could he just has that type of personality, we had a nice submission match he puts some of his bjj training to use great match, would highly recommend meeting Sam if you get the chance because I did and look forward to another meeting very soon!
Sam is recommended by justsomeguy
Sam is a great man. This was my first match. He spent time showing me moves & holds. Then we did a series of 3 minute bouts. I know he went easy on me. He forced me to put up a fight which is what I wanted. It was a great experience. Sam was a great choice for a first opponent. I am pleased I got to go up against him and am looking forward to our next time.
Sam is recommended by RocRassler
Sam was a great guy to meet and wrestle. Definitely knows his stuff...so don't listen to his modesty. He'll turn it around on u and try to choke u out! Safe and respectful . I appreciate him going out of his way to meet up. Definitely recommend.
RocRassler is recommended by Sam
It was my pleasure to make a side trip to Rochester to meet up with RocRassler and Lookintowrestle, two hot handsome wrestling studs. RocRassler is all solid muscle and is quite willing to use it and put you in all kinds of holds. Punching his pecs and abs feels like hitting a brick wall! Along with all that, he's a nice guy too. You should definitely wrestle him.
Finally met up with Sam after a long time of back and forth emails!
Great guy off and on the mat!
It was a real pleasure and hope to meet up again with him soon!
Sam is recommended by Lookintowrestle
We had a really great ti.e with Sam. He definetly could move and wrestle well! Great tenacityand fight. Wrestled with RocRassler and I and he was very adaptable to different styles of wrestling! I am glad he made the side trip to Rochester! Genuinely nice, warm gentleman!
Lookintowrestle is recommended by Sam
It was my pleasure to make a side trip to Rochester to meet up with RocRassler and Lookintowrestle, two hot handsome wrestling studs. Lookintowrestle is long and lean and packs an unexpected amount of strength as he aggressively attacks. He has great natural wrestling instincts, and is very enthusiastic about taking on more opponents. You would do yourself a favor to be one of them.
Sam is recommended by videostar07
In my most recent match, I had the utmost pleasure of wrestling Sam, a highly talented and highly experienced man who enjoys the competitive back and forth. The match started off rocky, but once things started going, we ended up having an amazing time! A very respectful, respectable, and talented man!
Sam is recommended by tomphila39
Sam is a fantastic wrestler and host! We had a good match (exchanging holds, rolling around). He has the perfect wrestling setup. I highly recommend Sam!
It was Great to see Sam again, and get to Wrestle him a lot this time!
He was always popular at past events, so I didn’t always get the chance to roll with him!
I’m looking forward to seeing him again!
Met Sam at an event in Claymont, Delaware. Had the pleasure of going a few rounds with him in a ring and on mats. A good time and I highly recommend him.
Sam is recommended by JerseyJohnny
Great guy, strong, friendly, skilled. I’d like to wrestle him again. If you have a chance to wrestle him, go for it.
Had a great time wrestling Sam. He is in fantastic host and is in great shape and very muscular. Had a great time rolling with him, he is very strong, and overpowering. I can't wait to wrestle him again and can't recommend him enough.
Sam is recommended by SlimScrapper
Been chatting for a while and glad we finally got the chance to meet up! Strong, experienced, can have a fun playful time or work up quite a sweat with this guy. Nice guy too and great to chat and have dinner with him. Definitely recommend.
SlimScrapper is recommended by Sam
I echo all the previous commendations of this wrestler. He's so fun to wrestle, fun to talk to. Very considerate and accommodating. And versatile, he can match your style and intensity to make it a fun experience. Very easy to set up a match with him. He's one of the bright stars on this site. You must wrestle him; go out of your way, if necessary, to make it happen. You're welcome.
Sam is recommended by hellcatedy
Sam is a strong heel. Big but also gentle, and likes applying holds. Great match we had.
Bil and I wrestled around like a couple of schoolkids, trading holds and submissions. Be forewarned, he doesn't submit easily. He brings high energy and an aggressive attitude to the match. Simple to set things up with him, and he stays in touch during the process. Full recommendation.
Sam is recommended by Wrestlinboi
Every bit as tough as he looks, any tap outs you get from him you will work very hard for. Easy match set up, ridiculous triceps, would wrestle again next time he drives through town.
Wrestlinboi is recommended by Sam
So easy to set up our match. He arrived totally prepared for battle. On the mats, this is one strong, aggressive stud who has a great imagination yet plays by the rules. Great talking to him afterward. By all means, wrestle him if you get the chance.
Sam is recommended by wrestlersub
It was great meeting a friendly person like Sam.
We had a good time of struggle and it was a real challenge to get submission from him. He does not give up easily. He has a good technique, strong legs and lots of energy. Sweaty match with a lot of fun.
Great host and easy to talk to. You will be glad to contact him.
wrestlersub is recommended by Sam
What good fortune to arrange this match at the last minute. Wrestlersub was in attack mode and kept me off-balance the entire time, and earned several taps from me. Even when I did gain an advantage, he fought off most (but not all!) of my advances. I enjoyed our tough sweaty battle, and you'll enjoy wrestling him too.
We finally met and wrestled! He was a gentle giant, and very good shape. He sounds really adventurous guy, wish him safe trip to Alaska and Philadelphia! I am looking forward to meeting with him later this year! Great host too, highly recommend👍
I had an awesome time wrestling kicksands. He has some knowledge and actively resisted everything I tried to do. Thankfully, he was able to rearrange his schedule and meet me during my stay in Vancouver. Handsome, in shape, knows wrestling, well-spoken – you want to wrestle him!
Sam is recommended by jdboxing20
Sam's an easygoing guy and respectful of limits. Glad I got to go a few rounds with him while he was traveling. Definitely recommend meeting with him.
SactoWrestler is recommended by Sam
SactoWrestler expresses more unabashed joy about wrestling than anyone I ever met. I spent a long time bearhugging this bear of a wrestler, as well as trading holds with him. Before the match he remains in constant communication. Then there was our surprise ending Lol. Heartily recommend him.
Awesome guy and great grappler. Really nice physique and lots of fun to roll with. Although he pretty much controlled me the whole time, I really enjoyed him also taking the time to share some BJJ techniques with me. Great communication leading up to our match and very gracious host. Very nice to get to know him as well. Another quality guy that makes this a great site. Don’t miss your chance to meet Sam, you will have a great time.
Sam definitely proves that age is only a number, very strong guy that versatile in his moves and knows how to use his strength! Aggressive on the mats but a nice guy outside that, taught me a little bit about how to apply holds too. Had a very good sweaty match and someone I recommend taking on in a match! :D
Sam is recommended by scottparachute
completely handsome and skilled. strong and well trained. hope to meet again.
This man is a STUD we had a blast beginning to end and super strong I almost tapped he was a complete gentleman from setting up when and where and let me know rules and limits which were respected can’t wait to get up to PS and toss him around
Sam is recommended by JockedDave
What a great guy and in great shape. I haven't had too many fights, so he was patient with me and was a lot of fun. I had a blast with Sam and worked up a good sweat! I would repeat with him any time and absolutely recommend him.
JockedDave is recommended by Sam
What a muscular stud! Strong as an ox. We boxed and wrestled, and he's skilled at both. He dominated me, but at least I made him sweat. Such a sweet guy to talk to. Easy to set up a match, kept in constant contact beforehand. Meet him for a rough and tough, yet sane, battle.
I had an awesome time with boxingazn. It was easy to arrange the match, and he kept in constant communication. We sparred for 12 grueling 2-minute rounds (grueling for me at least). He's so enthusiastic about boxing, and agreed to go at my pace but forced me to push myself. All of which was just what I needed. Outside the squared circle, he's intelligent and easy to talk to. A winner all-around!
Had a great match with Sam and would recommend this big built man....we wil wrestle again often..... a great guy to know off the mats too!!!! JIM
Sam is recommended by markmok110
Got to roll with Sam when he passed through Atlanta. Big, strong muscular guy who was great fun. Got to spend quality time with him off the mats too. Hope he comes through again soon.
Sam was great. Unfortunately we weren't able to have much of a fight due to a, thankfully non-serious, injury. He was very helpful and even went to fetch ice for it. Hope to meet him again in the future.
Nice, interesting guy, well-spoken. He has a world of fascinating experiences at a young age. He was considerate enough to meet up in the midst of a very busy schedule. Unfortunately an injury curtailed our wrestling activity. Hoping we can get a full session in the future.
Definitely glad to have met this guy, he is definitely strong for his age and probably stronger than most guys. He knew I was recovering from several all nighters and of course our weight difference. He gave a couple me chances to get him but definitely made me work for it. Also very patient to give me a couple pointers both in submission and boxing. Great sumo wrestler and a quick learner. Spent 9 hours and loved every minute of it
What a great guy! He schooled me in sumo, a sport for which he has an infectious passion. Hint: it's much more difficult and intricate than it looks. We did a bunch of submission wrestling. Despite his size disadvantage, he kept coming back for more. Then he tried body boxing for the first time. He has great instincts and never backs down. A small man with a giant heart. And great to spend time with when we when weren't fighting.
Sam is recommended by philliwrestler
Good guy with an amazing body and build for a man of his age. Great space to use and he definitely taught this jobber a thing or two.
Sam was so easy to set up a match with! He's a great host with a great setup!! Really nice off of the mats as well!
What a great guy! We set up our match at the spur of the moment, and he showed up promptly. It's true about his legs, but you can't avoid them! No matter what position you're in, he manages to get his legs involved to his advantage. Can't wait to try again.
Sam is a great guy, and I'm hoping that we will be regular opponents. We did a total of nine 2-minute rounds, in there's sets of three, and worked up an awesome sweat. Can't wait for our rematch!!
What a great guy to wrestle! He's strong and knows his wrestling holds and moves. I hope to wrestle him again and I highly recommend him to others looking for good wrestling matches. He's a great guy on and off the mats.

Sam looks much younger than his age. He was so strong & almost lock me into submission few times. Luckily, I had an narrow escape.
Good looking guy with nice personality. It was a good match.
Had a great match with Sam. He is very strong, respectful, polite and an excellent teacher. Would definitely recommend a match with this guy!

Sam is strong, safe, sane, reliable, and definitely a fun match. He is a great guy and I am looking forward to our next wrestle.

We finally were able to get together after talking about it for a while, and it was well worth the wait. Don't let his age fool you, he doesn't look it and doesn't wrestle like it. Great host and man, and I had fun with him on and off the mat. I highly recommend him and I am going to wrestle him any chance I can!
Sam is recommended by BeTrayedBetrayal
A very nice guy on and off the mats. Willing to teach me some new techniques that I can use in future matches. Hopefully to meet again later this year :)
Thoroughly enjoyed our fun workout together and would definitely welcome the opportunity to wrestle this great man again!
Had a lot of fun meeting and wrestling Sam. He's a lot stronger than he looks, can't wait til I can wrestle him again!
Good wrestling match with Sam on Jan 2 to ring in the new year. He's a strong and tough wrestler with a nice mat room at his place in Palm Springs. Good host. Highly recommended.

Had a great meet with Sam, he's truly a wrestler but wanted to learn more about boxing. We had a great session and got to know each other even more over lunch. Highly recommend meeting with him if you get the chance.
Sam is recommended by PacNWBulldog
Skilled wrestler and lots of endurance. Wreslted Sam almost 10 years ago in Houston. Nice guy off the mats and incredible physique. Would highly recommend for a great sweaty workout and wrestle. Would wrestle again in an instant if we were not so far apart geographically.
Had the opportunity to meet this guy last year. This big guy is great. In superb shape, he is tough and strong on the mats. He is also one of the nicest guys you could ever meet off the mats. I cant wait for that rematch.
Sam is a gentleman off the mats and tough as nails on the mats. A great wrestler and a serious workout. If you can wrestle him, do.
