Provide full access to 1 user to Everyone's HOME drive

Home drive gets created on the share when they login first time.

Path for home drive
\\servername\share$\usershare\%username%

So when user "John" logs in the home drive folder would be
\\servername\share$\usershare\John

"John" folder gets created with no inheritance from parent permission. It gives just John and administrators permission to the folder.
I want to give user "Sam"(who is not in  administrative group ) full permission to all folders under usershare folders(Which would be home folder to all other users).

I don't want to do it manually because it will take just too long to go through each folders.

Is  there a quick way to doing it? Through Any Group policy?
