Samuel Lea has been playing for the Veterans Softball Club for Veterans since 2006, and has experienced winning tournament and league championships with the various levels of Vipers teams. Voted to the Board of Directors in 2019, one of “Sam Shady’s” most memorable moments was when the club notched its 1000th win during a tournament in Front Royal, VA.
After serving in the Army for almost nine years and working as a federal contractor for almost twelve years, Sam landed a role as a Cybersecurity Engineer at the U.S. House of Representatives in 2016. As a recent graduate of two master’s programs, Sam is hoping to dedicate more of his newly-acquired “free time” to contribute to the development and growth of the VSCV organization.
Sam and his wife, Michelle, live in Woodbridge, VA, and has a 20-year old son, Brandon (lives and works in Maryland). Sam enjoys playing and watching sports, watching movies, and tinkering around with his home theater and coral reef aquarium.
