"I want to be part of a growing athletic society (at Ryerson)," said Manifold, who also stated that the small classroom sizes offered by the University played a role in her selecting Ryerson to pursue her post-secondary academic career.
"Sam is a player who immediately stood out with her determination, aggressiveness, and sense of fearlessness," said Soccer Co-ordinator Kevin Souter. "Not only that, but Sam is calm and confident in possession of the ball showing technical and tactical proficiency. Furthermore, a trait that Sam embodies and is vital to our team's culture is a sense of humble leadership. Sam is destined for a big future as a Ryerson Ram."
