01/15/2021 - 2021 Softball Factory Pre-Season All-America Tournament Samantha continues to shine on the field. On the mound, she shows a repeatable delivery, allowing her arm action to work loose to the plate. She has good stride length and throws with an intent. Fastball showed a range of 56-57 mph. Changeup sits 42-43 mph with slight sink. Rise ball sits 52-53 mph. At the plate, she continues to shine through a squared setup. Hands are quick (73 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. She makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Mental makeup is a plus as she is very coachable, works hard to be the best player she can be, and is a team player.
12/18/2020 - Softball Factory Academic All-American Tournament Samantha is an athletic RHP/SS prospect who showed well during the Academic All-American Tournament. In the circle, Samantha shows a five pitch mix with her fastball topping out at 57mph. Rise ball sits from 52-55mph. Curveball sits from 54-56mph with sharp movement. Changeup sits from 44-45mph as she throws with deceptive arm speed. Drop ball sits at 54mph with good movement. At SS, Samatha fields with soft hands and makes accurate throws across the diamond. At the plate, this RHH shows an advanced approach through an athletic setup. She gets into her load on time and drives through well with her lower half. She works through a level swing with explosive bat speed, leading to loud contact and great raw power. Overall, Samantha is a talented prospect who has the potential to contribute at the next level.
08/25/2020 - All-In Membership - Keizer (Salem), OR Samantha is a skilled 2-way player (RHP/3B) who can make things happen in a variety of ways. On the mound, this RHP has a 4-pitch arsenal in which to keep hitters guessing. She has sound mechanics, repeats her delivery well and throws strikes with all 3 pitches. FB ranges from 58-59 mph while showing good movement. Breaking ball shows sharp/late break with tight spin. Dropball 'drops off of the table' and will be a solid swing and miss pitch. She will challenge hitters every time that she steps onto the mound. At 3B, she has active prep and picks out the hops well. She funnels to a clean transfer and fires strong/accurate throws across the diamond. With the bat, this righty displays an athletic stance with active/loose hands. She gets good separation on her load, whips the barrel with + speed and connects with pop. Potvin has the skill-set that will translate well into a very high level of play. Only a 2024 grad - she is definitely one to keep an eye on.
