“We played against Denver East twice and Samuels was exceptional for them both times. He shows the ability to impact winning on both sides of the ball, night in and night out. If he needs to score, make plays for his teammates, rebound or defend, he gets it done. On the outside looking in, he seems like a great kid.”
