Currently a senior, Saaeed plans to go to Orange Coast College or Golden West College after he graduates from high school in 2012. He is captain along with Nick Dawson of the Boy’s varsity Basketball team at CMHS.
El-Assadi says he says he loves playing Basketball and hanging out with friends at CMHS, whenever he isn't out on the court.
When asked about his thoughts about receiving the athlete of the month award Saaeed said, in a humble tone, “It’s an honor, but I thought it could have gone to one of my other teammates.”
Saaeed stated that what made him receive this award was all due to hard work, not necessarily being any better than anyone else on his team. “I just work hard, I am not very talented or athletic, I just work hard.”
Although, some people who see him play would argue that he is a great Basketball player, such as his coach and teammates, as would the 149 points that he has scored this season El-Assadi did not let this recognition get to his head.
His coach seems to believe that Saaeed has committed more than enough to deserve the title of athlete of the month.
