Tre Watson Diary: Time for districts
Tampa Catholic linebacker Tre Watson will keep his diary for each week, and give us a perspective on the recruiting trail. His mother, Christa Phillips-Watson - will also contribute from a parent's perspective.
Here is week 7- District Week
Last week was a whirlwind; a lot going on in a very short period of time!
Thursday game means a short week!
First things first: Tarpon Springs. After all the talk and them going 2-0 with a super star running back, we shut that down on Thursday night. We made plays all across the field and defense was lights out!!! Offense came out swinging, we scored early and often, but we still have to make a few adjustments.
I had been sick with the flu all week, but hadn't wanted to miss school or practice, so by the time I woke up Friday, my body was beat down.
I rested up in time to catch the USF game on Saturday night! Well, I guess I should really say the Florida Atlantic game. USF struggled big time. Honestly, I expected The Bulls to regroup and come out and get better this weekend, and that didn't happen. The upside: FAU's defense was pretty impressive as was the win overall. I didn't know they had it in them. The downside: I was there to watch USF and for the second time in as many week they were beaten by a considerable margin at home, by underdogs. Well at least now I know my visit to FAU will be worthwhile!
As for this week, we begin our District play! These are the ones that count and we need EVERY SINGLE one of them. Being Fort Meade, I already know they will come to play after we put them out of the playoffs last year. It should be interesting with their run game. They've got a decent QB and run but then again, so did Tarpon Springs. I guess we will just have to wait and see...
The Highlight of the week will be when Motlow and I get our jerseys for the Blue Grey All American game! The selection committee comes out for our jersey presentation at 6:45, and I can't wait! I guess that means Motlow and I definitely have to put on a show since everybody will have an eye on us! It's cool though, I embrace pressure and just like having another opportunity to showcase what I can do!
Continue to hear from the schools that are recruiting me! Boston College will be here to see me this week! Very excited about that! If I continue doing what I have been doing, I'm on pace to set records this year!
Ready to bring it and put it on Ft. Meade with my Crusader Boyz!
Be blessed and go Crusaders!
