American University junior Sa'eed Nelson was featured in the Press of Atlantic City newspaper on Nov. 13 after the Eagles defeated George Mason, 78-75, in an overtime win in the season-opener. Nelson was interviewed by reporter Ahmad Austin about his overall game and another sport he played growing up. Below is an excerpt from the article.
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – St. Augustine Prep graduate Sa'eed Nelson is no stranger to the limelight.
The Pleasantville native averaged around 20 points per game during his final two seasons with the Hermits and was named the 2014-15 and 2015-16 Press Boys Basketball Player of the Year.
"I'm not the best Sa'eed that I could be," Nelson said last week on his growth as a player. "I could get much, much better, especially if I want to go to the next level."
