PREVIOUS EVALUATION ON SAM'S GAME:
STRENGTHS: Sammy has shown the ability to play both forward positions. I like his size too. It enables him to handle smaller players around the rim.
AREAS TO IMPROVE: Post moves, defensive presence
EVALUATION: Sammy competed this past season for Sean Atkin's Boys Club of N.Y. AAU program. Atkins does a terrific job in putting together players that need an opportunity for exposure. Atkins also does a great job in scheduling, giving his team ample chances to play against some of the best talent in the area.
This certainly helped the progress of Sammy's individual game. He is a very versatile player. He showed he can utilize his handle to make moves past defenders and create his shot.
