Parents and family
Levi Colwill parents are Mr Levi Colwill Samuels Snr (father) and Deborah Samuel Colwill (mother).
It is evident his parents still play a huge role in his life. The rising levels of expectation surrounding their son mean their advice and protection could prove crucial to his development.
“They’re the most important people in my career,” he says. “They know what I’m like, who I am as a person. If I ever do get a bit big-headed, they remind me where I come from and how hard we have all had to work to get to this point. This is just the start. We know there is a lot more to go through as a family and to achieve as a family.
“They drive up to see me a lot. My dad comes to every game, no matter where it is. It’s good to have them so close to me, to keep me humble.
“My parents are the best of both worlds. My dad is more about what happens on the pitch. He’s been watching me play since the start so if it’s anything about what happens on the pitch, I go to him. Off the pitch, I go to mum. She is the one who will constantly remind me that there is a bigger world out there. When I’m down and she can see it, she is always there to give me a hug. It’s a perfect mix.”
Being the child of a Black father and a British mother, the Chelsea FC graduate is of mixed ethnicity.
