Some of you may know Sam Askegaard as the kid throwing touchdown passes on Friday nights, others as the kid hitting three pointers on the basketball court, but if you were at coronation on Monday night you now know him as Barnesville High’s 2018 Homecoming King.  Most of the school knows this loud, outgoing goofball, but here are some facts you may not know about our newly-crowned King. Sam doesn’t watch much Netflix, but when he does, he enjoys watching The Ranch. His favorite color is red or white because “these colors are everywhere,” and his favorite food is steak with A1 sauce. When asked which student and which teacher he would want to be stranded on an island with, he said, “N. Strand and Hunter Zenzen because you have N. Strand’s brain and Zenzen’s strength. What more do you need?” Anyone who knows Sam also knows his wicked sarcasm, so in typical Askegaard fashion he responded with “a boat” when I asked him what item he would bring to the island. Following the interview questions, I talked with Sam some more about homecoming in general. Sam’s favorite part of homecoming week is watching everybody have fun with the dress up days, but he is also very excited for Friday night’s game. When asked what he’s expecting for Friday’s game, Sam told me that he’s hoping for a win, but above all he just wants everyone to have fun- players and fans included. So, if you see Sam in the hallway or out of school, give this guy a “hey!” because he’s a one-of-a-kind dude that everyone should get to know.
