Samuel caught the eye of a scout for the national selection in September when he was competing in an inter-district tournament in Belize City, and was drafted immediately. According to Mr. Chimilio, Mr. Figueroa exhibited much talent and lots of potential. He has since been vigorously practicing with the national selection team, in Belmopan.
