OFF SEASON HUDDLE – Coconut Creek’s Michael Watkins III Getting His Chance

PLAYER: Michael Watkins III


SCHOOL: Coconut Creek

CLASS: 2021



SCOUTING: The great thing about south Florida is that new stars seem to emerge every day.

Here is one of those impressive underclassmen that head coach Gerald Cox was talking about when looking at his Cougars for the 2019 season.

This is a pass catcher who has speed and the ability to make plays – and credits his improvement to the year round competition he has the chance to go against here in south Florida.

Watch him perform and you will be sold by everything he brings to the table. Keep an eye on his progress this season. You will not be disappointed.

Coaches who have played against him for years have long predicted that this is someone who has an opportunity to be very special.
