Sam Dommer (Folsom, Calif.) almost walked away from rowing – twice. The first time came in 2014 after winning a collegiate national championship. U.S. men’s coach Luke McGee called to invite him to Princeton, N.J., to try out for the national team, but Dommer said no. Then, he had a dream that he had made a mistake, reconsidered, and made the trip to New Jersey.
