They say speed kills and Sa’eed Nelson is a testament to that. Nelson from Pleasantville, NJ is a starting guard for F.A.C.E.S. 11U and 12U. Last season he was a finalist for Player of The Year Honors and took home the Sportsmanship Award. This year his quickness has caused him to be virtually unstoppable at times especially on the 11U level. He returned to his hometown to help F.A.C.E.S. take the AC Showcase 11U crown. We had a chance to holler at Sa’eed “Flash” Nelson and here’s our One On One.
