We asked about the factors that influenced Warren's decision and Mrs. Warren replied, "One of the big things was the Media Studies program that Virginia offers. Sam is into digital media and they have a program that offers everything he wants, from film to animation to game design."
Mrs. Warren went on to say, "Sam liked the idea of playing in the ACC, with it being one of the better conferences. He also really enjoyed the staff and just connected with them. And the tradition at Virginia, with it also being one of the top academic schools in the country -- that also was a factor."
