Samuel Quenton Hammond, age 21, died Saturday, May 16, 2020 in Statesboro, Ga. He earned a black belt in Taekwondo at an early age and enjoyed competing all over Georgia and Florida. Later he joined a traveling baseball team and traveled throughout Georgia until he began playing high school football. After high school he traveled to Medellin, Columbia where he lived and immersed himself into their culture, becoming fluent in Spanish. After returning to Statesboro, he used his skills he learned in Columbia to communicate and help ease the barrier of those who were learning the English language. In doing so, he went to work selling mobile homes and was loved by all of his customers. Quenton was an avid UGA fan, and loved traveling to Sanford Stadium to cheer on the DAWGS.
