For every high school senior, entering your senior year is filled with a ton of emotions. They can range from anxiety to sadness to joy. Whatever emotions are running through 2015 DB Nick Peart they are being used to his utmost benefit. The senior safety for American Heritage Plantation has come up big in three huge games to start the 2014 season for the Patriots. Peart has put together quite the highlight of big hits, caused fumbles, interceptions and INT returns. Not to mention great open field tackles and solid coverage. In three games, Peart has put together what amounts to a season worth of big plays for many others playing the position.
In the season opener vs. Dwyer which was televised nationally on ESPN, Peart snagged an interception which he returned 47 yards, caused a fumble on a big hit against a receiver over the middle and recovered a block punt. In another televised contest vs. national power St. Thomas Aquinas, Peart tallied several important open field tackles against Aquinas’ talented backfield and then last week in a thrilling win vs. Miramar, Peart had a 98 yard interception return for a touchdown.
Peart brings toughness, instincts and outstanding footwork to the party as a defensive back. The transfer from University School in Ft. Lauderale, Florida has made an impact on a strong defense that won a state title in 2013. Look for more big plays from the senior as the season goes on.
