Walker Valley High School emerged from Thanksgiving weekend 4-0 on the young season. Starting guard Sam Belau (2020) puts in countless hours crafting his game and his outside shot.
What are the results for the 6-foot-1 junior so far?

The Deeper Valley
Walker Valley High, now 4-0, began last season 0-3 and progressed to 1-6. How did a team that finished 12-16 kick off this fall campaign with such punch?
Meigs County awaits Walker Valley Tuesday night, but already run over by the Mustangs were William Blount, Campbell County, Rhea County, and Sweetwater.

Even though the new Walker Valley Head Coach Will Campbell touts his defensive acumen, the offensive firepower is the early cause for success. Coach Campbell’s Mustangs and Sam Belau put up 77 or more points in each of their first four games.
A week ago Sam shared his outside shooting with Rhea County. Since the spring months Sam Belau’s shooting form has quickened a little bit. He proves to defenders that he is a strong catch-and-shoot guy.
Developing his foot speed and handles will certainly broaden his game a touch. Belau’s shot form and mechanics suggest shooting is the one area he can help the most on the current varsity team.
