Watkins isn’t just looking to get bigger for a future at the college level. He wants to get better for the Jaguars. He is one of only two returning starters from an offensive line that took Westmoore to the postseason and led the way for one of the most dominant ground games in class 6A.
“He’s solid everywhere,” Langford said. “He has some areas he needs to work on, but they are pretty solid. He doesn’t have any really glaring areas. He just needs to keep working and develop his overall game.”
Going to the lineman’s camp is one way for him to improve.
“It was good,” Watkins said. “Came out here and learned some different techniques, the way people see stuff. It was nice. Something new. You get to see other teams out here. It’s not all 6A teams. You have private schools and stuff. So you get to see different bodies.”
Langford has seen Watkins improve throughout his career with the Jags. He sees him getting even better for his final campaign.
“He just needs to go play his game,” Langford said. “I truly think this year he’s going to have a great year and open some eyes. It would be nice if he grows a little bit and puts on some weight. He’s going to be in the weight room to do those things. He’s committed to being the best football player he can be and help us be the best team we can be.
“We are expecting great things for him.”
