Oakland’s Sam Dexter ready for big baseball season
University of Southern Maine senior set program record for career doubles on Thursday.

“I don’t know how many times they put a Division III guy on the ballot for this, but if there’s a guy that I’ve ever coached (who deserves it), Sam’s the best,” USM coach Ed Flaherty told “He’s a kid who could, I think play at mid-level Division I, maybe even high-level; that’s what his talent is. Not only that, he’s just a tremendous young man and works at his game every single day of his life.”
