One of my teammates posted this pic. About 5 seconds later is when Sam fell and I ran to his side then called 911. It still hasn't fully hit me but I'm thinking about trying to create a #samyoungfoundation to help support his family, young athletes and to create awareness of potential  cardiovascular issues. Lets know ur thoughts and if u have any knowledge on how to go about doing something like this. Thanks for all the kind words and support, I am going to push harder and I'm getting this win and donating a large portion of my win bonus to his family!
