HIGH SCHOOL: Eastern Greene
HS GRADUATION CLASS: 2021
My name is Sam Rees and this will be my second year with the CHAMPIONS Program. I’ve been involved with DistinXion youth camps since 3rd grade, and have always really enjoyed it. The program has always helped me improve, and I enjoy the family like atmospher. My basketball goals include setting the school record for 3-pointers in a game, winning a sectional, and my ultimate goal would be to one day play in college. Outside of basketball my aspirations are to get a college education, receive an FCA Attitude Award, continue to help our FCA chapter at Eastern Greene grow, and be a role model for younger kids in my community. After high school I hope to attend college and study something in sports medicine or sports broadcasting. My dream job would be an ESPN Broadcaster. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with friends and playing video games. Some fun facts about me: I’m a master at arcade basketball, and I can eat 20 inches of burrito at our local Mexican restaurant.
