Sonic Prep Player of the Week: Preston Watson

Watson plays football at Seminole High School

SANFORD, Fla. – A powerhouse school is looking to return to the big stage in football, and this week’s Player of the Week wants to set them apart.

Preston Watson is a senior defensive lineman at Seminole High School. He was a part of the Seminole Seminoles squad that won the state championship in 2020.

The Noles have been strong year after year, and Watson has played a significant role. His strengths on the football field and in the classroom earned him a scholarship to Duke.

Playing in college next year for the Blue Devils will be a dream fulfilled for Watson. But right now, it’s about taking care of business at Seminole. And Watson has lofty goals.

“I want to be one of the best players to come out of Seminole,” Watson said. “I want my name to be remembered; I want to be the best D-tackle to come through here. As a team, I want to be known as probably the best team to ever win a ring, honestly. We got 2008 and 2020...I’m trying to get that 2023 squad a ring. That’s the ultimate goal.”
