Hi, my name is Sam Deressa. I have currently played varsity for 2 years as a captain. My main goal from now to senior year is just improvement in my basketball skills and as a person. The offseason from my freshman year to sophomore year was probably the hardest I pushed myself for a long period of time. It actually paid off as my skillset got better and along with it my confidence. My stats, leadership, and maturity all grew over time. One thing that separates me from other prospects is I never settle. I always try to go above and beyond what is expected of me and I take harsh feedback from everyone. My strengths would be finishing, shooting, ball, and handeling. One of my weaknesses is defense and athleticism. In the past 2 years, I have mostly played in a zone defense system. But I have been working a lot during this offseason and hopefully this AAU season to play better defense and work really hard at it. Along with that putting some more work in the weight room to pair along with that.
