Calvert Hall football coach Donald Davis says it could be a fearful thought for rivals who face the Cardinals and the Harvard University-bound Watson this season.
After gaining an eye-catching 6.75 yards per carry on 122 attempts for 824 yards last year, the 5-foot-9, 180-pound running back could put up even gaudier numbers this fall with his big-play ability.
"I expect him to double that," Davis said of Watson's rushing yardage. "Maybe that's asking a lot. But he is the fastest guy in the area. He ran in the 4.3s (in the 40-yard dash) in four different camps across the U.S. this summer."
Senior running back Tim Smith (5-10, 220) gives Calvert Hall a nice complement to Watson.
"We have competitive kids and great leadership in the senior class," Davis said. "Those guys are accustomed to being successful. We had a solid season (7-4) two years ago, and some of those guys were sophomores on that team. Last year was a down year for us. That's where we have the program right now."
