@BradyNassar – One of the Best Kept Secrets in CA

The Amador Valley HS varsity football team got off to a great start in 2021. The Dons recorded three straight shutouts after giving up just seven points in their season-opening win 38-7 win over Milpitas.

One of the big reasons for the success of the Dons defense is one of the best-kept secrets in all of California – junior DE Brady Nassar. Nassar has all the measurables FBS programs love in an edge rusher. He checks in at 6-foot-5-inches and 240 pounds.

You can see the ability of Nassar in these highlights from his first five games of the 2021 fall season.

Nassar is clearly blessed with size, speed, athleticism, and more. What is surprising is that he has obtained just a single FBS offer. That came just before the 2021 season back in August.

The Washington offer is Nassar’s first and only thus far. The big defensive end prospect has received plenty of Pac-12 interest, but no other offers have come in just yet. That is likely to change after the Dons season ends.

Two more games remain on Amador Valley’s schedule. The first is against national power De La Salle and the finale is against California HS from San Ramon. Both will give Nassar a chance to further support his cause.

Multi-Talented Athlete

In addition to playing defensive end where Nassar projects at the next level, he is also a very capable tight end. Playing in a run-heavy offense, Nassar displays his toughness as a blocker and also shows he can play a role in the passing game.

So far this fall, Nassar has 11 catches for 172 yards and a touchdown as Amador Valley’s tight end. You can see some of his blocking and catching abilities – in addition to his performance on defense – in his sophomore season highlights.

For his junior season, Nassar has recorded 28 total tackles, 13 of which were solo. He has 11 tackles for loss and six sacks with two games left to play. He has forced one fumble and recovered one as well.

The Future

Nassar is one of the top 100 prospects in California in the Class of 2023. As more schools see his junior season film, the offers will start to come in.

Nassar will continue to visit some of the top programs in the country as well. Over the weekend of Oct. 2, Nassar was at Notre Dame.

With two games this season, a whole offseason, and his senior year to play, the sky is the limit for Amador Valley’s Brady Nassar. Soon, he will no longer be the best-kept secret in California.
