Class of 2020 wing player Sam Richardson of Hancock has been a fixture in the Tigers lineup ever since he entered the school as a freshman and he continues to be a big part of the team's recent run of success.

The 6'5" Richardson has been been a stat-sheet stuffer who excels in all facets of the game. He can get buckets, rebound, handle the ball and play solid defense. He does whatever it takes to help his team succeed and Hancock has won a lot of games during his career in South St. Louis County.

His overall game helped him get his first Division I offer from SEMO during the summer. He has also received interest from schools such as Drury, Jacksonville, Nebraska-Omaha, PIttsburg State, Morehead State and Texas Southern.

"When I got my first offer from SEMO, I was very excited," he said. "It shows that my hard work doesn't go unseen."

As a junior, Richardson put together a terrific season in leading the Tigers to a Class 3 district championship. He averaged 21.6 points, 9.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 2.4 steals while shooting 60 percent from the field in leading the Tigers to a 19-6 record.
