Clyde Santee is a smooth, long & athletic player with a wide skill set.  He can play multiple positions; 1, 2, & 3. He does not need to have the ball in his hands to be effective.  Santee will stay active with his hard nosed D and rebounding, allowing the scoring opportunities to come to him in the flow of the game.  He will be a major factor in Houston Yates’ bid for another Texas 4A State Championship.
