A.I. duPont's Freddie Heard is this week's WDEL High School Athlete of the Week. Celebrating his senior night with a clutch win against Mount Pleasant and even securing a date to prom, Freddie says it's been a good day.

"It feels great. Knowing it might be our last home game, we came out here and did our thing and we all stuck together like a family."

Insisting his teammates stand with him during the interview, it's clear to see how much this group means to Freddie.

"This team means everything. This is probably the best senior year you can have."

The current senior plans to continue his football career in the fall at Arizona Western. And his advice to future Tiger basketball players,

"Work, work, work. Make your foul shots and work."

Head Coach Tom Tabb had some words about Freddie's dynamics on the court.

"His roll is our primary scorer, however he doesn't want to be the scorer. He wants to get everybody involved. So he focuses on assists, rebounds, steals, defending the best players. He does all the little things"

A.I. duPont upset Mount Pleasant in there regular season finale, 74-54.
