Univest’s SuburbanOneSports.com Featured Male Athlete (Week of March 1)
 
Nick Christian was a captain of Bensalem’s basketball team. A three-year varsity player, Christian was the undisputed leader of an Owls’ squad that was 15-10 and earned a district playoff berth. He is being recruited to play at the collegiate level, but his legacy goes well beyond his accomplishments on the court and includes the many young lives he has touched as a coach in the Bensalem Police League. “Nick is a consummate leader,” coach John Mullin said. “He’s a great kid. Whatever he does he’ll be successful because he has the ability to lead in any setting.”
 
Christian, who has been accepted at West Point, is uncertain where he will be attending college, but he hopes to pursue a career in law enforcement.
