Last season after recovering from a broken leg, Samples had 65 recpetions for 1,369 yards and 20 touchdowns. This spring he broke his foot at a combine. He has aggressively rehabbed the injury and looks to make it back to compete at The Opening when he makes his announcement.
Samples' father, Reginald, is the athletic director and head coach at Skyline. He was the head coach at Dallas Lincoln High School previously where he coached Oklahoma State basketball player Byron Eaton, who was a quarterback for the Tigers, and recent Cowboys defensive end standout Richetti Jones.
