Player Spotlight: Nazir Easter C/O ’22 Strong Safety/Corner/Linebacker

Nazir Easter is a rising senior for Troup High School in Lagrange, Georgia.

The dynamic playmaker flies all around the field on defense at multiple positions for the Tigers, seeing time at safety, corner and linebacker.

Standing at 6’1, 177 pounds, Easter already has great size to be able to slide into any of the positions at the next level, with time to grow even more!

Easter has been clocked at an impressive 4.6 in the forty-yard-dash, as well as has a squat max of 475 pounds. He also holds a 250 pound power clean max and a 245 bench press max with his 78″ wingspan!

While his season did not start how he would have liked, he and the Tigers proved it’s not about how you start, but how you finish that counts.

“We started out at 0-3,” Easter said. “We then ripped off six wins in a row, and made it to the region championship, where we were narrowly edged by a touchdown. We made it to the playoffs, but we lost to a competitive team.

“I feel as though we were able to play well in that six-game stretch because of the team accountability that we had.”

Easter would be a key contributor in 2020, finishing with 41 tackles on the season, as well as 8 PBU’s!

Easter knows that he has to do certain things to separate himself from other players in the country, and he works on that daily.

“I feel like my physicality is what sets me apart,” Easter said. “There are not many defensive backs that will come down and lay the hammer, but I am one of those guys. I do not care who you are, or what size, I am bringing it all.

“My leadership is another key component in who I am as a player. I am always pushing my teammates to be great, and I want to get the most out of them!”

With a 3.0 GPA on the season, Easter will open the door to many opportunities at the next level, including some interest that he is already receiving from top programs.
