“When I was 16 I injured myself badly and had to sit out of soccer,” Sam shared to German magazine Jolie (via Belfast Telegraph).

He added, “In that time, I realized a few things. I was very small at the time; all my friends were bigger and more muscly than me. I just wasn’t strong enough or talented enough to keep up. So, with a heavy heart, I had to say goodbye to that dream.”
