Gabrielle 'Gabby' Samuels will play her college volleyball at Oklahoma Baptist University after signing last week with the Lady Bison.
Able to play outside hitter, defensive specialist and libero, the 5-4 Samuels was a four-year All-Conference and All-State at Community Christian School. The daughter of Miguel and Gretchen Samuels, Gabby made the NCSAA All-Tournament team in 2007. A 2007 Wendy's High School Heisman school winner, Samuels also was a 2008 All-State and NCSAAA All-Tournament basketball player.
Off the hardwoods, Samuels is a 2007-08 National Society of High School Scholars member and was elected Miss Executive by the CCS student body.
Samuels said she chose OBU because of "Coach Anna Monsen and I really like the good campus environment."
Samuels will be competing on OBU's first volleyball team since 1987.
