Introducing Sa’eed Nelson

Sa’eed Nelson is a 4th Grader from Atlantic City area that you will need to keep an eye out for. That’s right 4th Grader! I saw Nelson playing for the NJ Shore Shots this weekend and he made my jaw drop. The 9 year old playing in the 10U division had exceptional speed, poise and understanding of basketball. He knows when to pick his spots to attack and has court vision beyond his age. When his squad was trailing against Asbury Park Rec, Nelson turned his game up by stepping up the defense and drive, draw and dishing on offense. This kid is truly a blur with the rock. Sa’eed also gets it done on the gridiron. Last season he had 30 touchdowns for his Pop Warner team.
