HIGH SCHOOL: Eastern Greene
HS GRADUATION CLASS: 2021
My name is Sam Rees and I chose DistinXion because I've been involved in the organization since 3rd grade, starting with camp and training. DistinXion AAU seemed like a great fit for me. Being around the programs DistinXion has to offer I have always liked the environment. I also like that it's not all about playing tournaments, we put in a lot of work on development to get better in the off season. My basketball goals include being a varsity starter as a sophomore next year, joining the Eastern Greene 1,000 point club, and my ultimate goal would be to one day play in college. Outside of basketball, my dreams and aspirations include getting all A's and B's in high school, be a positive influence in my community, and to be known as a good person. After high school, I hope to attend college and get a 4 year degree. I'm currently unsure on what I'd like to study, but I'm very interested in sports broadcasting or physical therapy so I can work with athletes. My dream job though would be to be an NBA player. Outside of basketball, I enjoy running track, hanging out with friends, and playing video games. A fun fact about me: I'm a pretty good dancer.
