The Drink Up Jewish Link Sportstar of the Week: Sammy Mohl

The Jewish Link and Drink Up would like to recognize Sammy Mohl as this week’s Sportstar of the Week. Sammy is an eighth grader at Yavneh Academy and one of the main cogs on the Yavneh Redhawks eighth grade basketball team—one of the top teams in the YMSSA. In a recent game, Mohl put on a show scoring almost half of the Redhawks’ points when they defeated the Noam Knights 40-27. When asked about Mohl, Yavneh’s coach Ushie Selevan told The Jewish Link, “Sammy’s calm demeanor on and off of the court, coupled with his basketball skills make him a natural leader for the Yavneh Redhawks.”
