My name is Drew Sample, and I’m an NFL Tight End for the Cincinnati Bengals. I grew up in Bellevue, Washington, where I played both football and basketball at Newport High School. I was fortunate enough to be recruited to play college football with multiple scholarship offers out of high school, and decided to play at the University of Washington. While I was there, I made sure to prioritize my academics just as much as my athletics. My commitment as a student athlete was reflected through being a 3 time Academic All-Pac 12 Selection. I graduated in 2018 with a degree in communications, and I also received a sales certificate from Washington’s business school. One year later I was selected as the 52nd overall pick in the NFL Draft to the Cincinnati Bengals.
I currently reside in Ohio with my wife, two children, and our dog, Louie. Fitness and health have always played an integral role in my life, both on and off the field. It’s pivotal to me to take care of my body and recover properly after exercise. I am very passionate about fitness and health and it is something that I really want to get into after my football career. I am so excited to be partnering with NOW®! As an athlete I am very careful about what I put into my body and NOW offers clean, high-quality products from protein to supplements to help me train and recover at an elite level.*
