BIRMINGHAM — UAB senior golfer Sam Love, a former Hewitt-Trussville golfer, was named last week as an All-Conference USA Second Team selection.

Love this season had a 72.3 stroke average, ranking him fourth on the UAB team. He totaled four top-10 finishes, including a runner-up finish at the 2014 John Hayt Collegiate Invitational and a third-place finish at the 2013 Tony Cup in Tanagura, Japan. Love was the top finisher from an American university in the Tony Cup.

It was the best tournament of Love’s career, registering his best 18-, 36- and 54-hole scores of his college career. His 36-hole score of 8-under ranks second in UAB history, while his 18- and 54-hole scores rank seventh and 10th, respectively.

While on the Hewitt-Trussville golf team, Golfweek/Sagarin rated Love as the fifth-best high school golfer in the state of Alabama.

Love was coached in high school by Chad Dahlke.
