Sam was a teenager suspected of setting off a cherry bomb in school. He appeared in "Bag Man".
Sam, who Jax Bender "lived" to prank and make fun of, found himself caught up under a blanket of suspicion from Principal Gallo about who set off a cherry bomb. Sam was innocent, and protested this, but the person at fault would not come forward, so Principal Gallo left him in detention with everyone else.
Sam said little during his time in detention, only briefly quipping that there is an unattended bag policy when Gabbi MacArthur tosses a suspicious bag into the hallway, and later agreeing with her when she brings up Jax's race, but little else. When they discovered Jax's severed head inside the bag, Sam went into a state of shock, repeating over and over that it cannot be real, that it must be a joke, only for the Bag Man to emerge behind him and kill him.
