Stanford Commit Sam Roush Transfers To Lipscomb Academy

Sam Roush, the ninth-ranked tight end in California has announced he will be transferring to Lipscomb Academy in Nashville, Tennessee.

Roush is leaving San Jose’s Valley Christian High School, where the 4-star garnered comparisons to the Los Angeles Rams' Tyler Higbee while collecting 17 Division-I offers. He committed to Stanford on October 12, 2020 over other Power-5 schools like USC, North Carolina, and Arkansas.

His Junior season at Valley Christian, though, was postponed due to the COVID-19 and Roush wasn't able to collect any stats. Meanwhile, in Tennessee, Lipscomb played 13 games in the Fall of 2020 and played in the Tennessee D2-AA State Championship on December 3rd.

The 6'5", 225-pound tight end will join TSSAA D2-AA Middle Region Offensive Player of the Year quarterback Luther Richesson, 1st team All-State running back Alex Broome and All-Region selections tight end Beau Dawson and wide receiver Coleman Baker on the offensive side of the ball at Lipscomb Academy.

Lipscomb Academy’s head coach Trent Dilfer is heading into his third year as head coach of the Mustangs. He inherited a program that was 3-19 during the 2017 and 2018 seasons. In Dilfer’s first season the 2019 Mustangs went 7-6 with a State Semi-Final appearance. In 2020, the Mustangs went 11-3 advancing to the State Championship game.

The Mustangs recently released their 2021 schedule which includes three out of state opponents, Greater Atlanta Christian (GA), Pulaski Academy (AR) and Etowah (AL), who garnered a combined 36-5 record during their respective 2020 campaigns.
