From the time Samuel Barrow began playing tennis, the anticipation of competing gripped him. He could hardly wait until the first match of a state Level 4 would begin.

Even as he aged and his ability improved, Barrow’s passion never wavered. He would sit down with his parents every year and mark all the tournaments he wanted to play.

They would tell him which dates might work and which dates had conflicts.

"I fell in love with USTA tournaments and was always looking forward to them,” Barrow said. “They would be months away and I would just keep thinking about that one weekend. I have always tried to convince my parents to let me play every single one possible."

Barrow’s weekends will soon be filled with college matches. The four-star senior from Macon, Georgia decided to stay very close to home and sign with Mercer University.

“I really wasn’t interested in staying in Macon until I visited Mercer and met with the team and the coach,” Barrow said. “I loved the coach and he had a lot of faith in me. I really liked the campus. It didn't feel like the Macon I grew up with, so it was kind of an escape while also being nearby."
