Athlete of the week: Mickey Watson, Batavia, Senior, Football
Why he was selected: Team-high eight tackles against Streamwood on Friday; team-high two sacks against Streamwood
Batavia senior Mickey Watson had quite a weekend, turning in a big defensive performance in the Bulldogs football team’s shutout win against Streamwood on Friday while also reigning as the school’s homecoming king. Watson, the St. Charles Bank & Trust-Kane County Chronicle Athlete of the Week, discussed his feats with Chronicle sports editor Jay Schwab. The following is an edited transcript:
Was that your best game of the season?
I don’t know. It was a pretty good game but they weren’t the best team. I feel like Glenbard North was probably my worst game but I don’t know if this was my best game. I just feel every week I’m getting a little but better ... and getting used to varsity speeds of middle linebacker.
