Graduating from high school is a great accomplishment and milestone in any young adult’s life. Graduating at the age of 16 is a feat in itself.  Samuel Joseph has achieved this goal and more.
I recently caught up with Joseph, found much about his relationship with the game of basketball, and what he is looking forward to in college. The senior guard, who plays for Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School in Brooklyn, New York, is a player with drive.  At 6’1″ and 195 pounds, Joseph is a combo guard, who has tremendous ability to shoot from long range.  Along with being a three-point specialist, he can dribble the ball extremely well and run the point. He is known as a hustle player, sacrificing himself on any play.  This diversity in his game makes Samuel a great prospect coming out of the 2013 class.  Joseph is looking forward to playing basketball at the next level, but he also is interested in pursuing a finance major in college.  He maintained an 80 GPA and graduated with honors at B.L.
Joseph also is a member of the Brooklyn Badgers AAU team, and he said he is looking forward to the upcoming “Rumble in the Bronx” tournament.  I asked him what he was looking forward to during the spring and summer months before college and he said, “I’m looking forward to just improving my game as a whole, but focusing on my weaknesses, which are rebounding and shooting off the dribble.” I believe he will improve on these aspects.  When discussing what he loves about the game, and what he feels are the reasons for his hard work, Joseph said, “My favorite part of the game is winning, and my hard work comes from knowing that while I’m resting, someone else is working.”
Samuel Joseph is a dynamic player and an incredible student-athlete. His dedication to the game, as well as academics, makes him not only a special player and prospect, but an incredibly commendable young man. I, as well as the rest of Upstate Scouting Service, see him becoming very successful. We want to thank Samuel for his time and wish him luck in his future endeavors.
