Stichnote settled in at Millikin
ASHLAND - Former Southern Boone County High School standout Sam Stichnote has wrapped up his first year of college basketball at Millikin University. With that, he's made a transition to college life.
“It’s definitely different, but I’ve loved it," Stichnote said. "Being able to live by myself and have more responsibility and a lot more freedom.”
In the last year, Stichnote has transitioned on and off the court and found a role on the Millikin basketball team.
"Everyone’s bigger, stronger, faster, more skilled," Stichnote said. "It was a pretty awesome experience.”
Stichnote has had another transition, going from three sports at Southern Boone, to just one at Millikin.
“I’m so used to going from practices in football, spending that much time on that, then spending all my time on basketball, and then all my time on baseball," Stichnote said. "It’s like I can spend that same amount of time just on basketball.”
As Stichnote has transitioned to a new life at Millikin, he still holds on to the memories from Southern Boone.
“I just enjoyed competing in all those different facets," Stichnote said. "It’s something I miss a lot.”
