Derrick Deshaun Watson
Born In Gainsville, Georgia
Living up to potential has never been an issue for Gainsville, Georgia native, Deshaun Watson. A starting quarterback since freshman year of high school and breaking state records along the way, Deshaun worked his way up to the No.1 quarterback in the nation. In his first start as a Clemson Tiger, the true freshmen’s performance was a historic one. Six touchdowns for 435 yards over North Carolina, a new school record.
The path to Clemson’s National Championship game was carved by a Watson lead undefeated season. In spite of the losing outcome for the Tigers, Deshaun set the record for total yards in national championship history with 478. That game also contributed to making Deshaun the first collegiate player to ever throw for over 4,000 yards and rush for over 1,000 yards. Watson also came in third that season for the Heisman Trophy.
Deshaun’s final season at Clemson culminated in yet another 4,000 plus in yards and a National Championship appearance. This time though, the Tiger’s would bring home the trophy and a game MVP for Watson. In a sophisticated navy blue suit and statement spiked black Louboutin smoking slippers, DeShaun became the 12th overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft. Watson’s style selection on the red carpet was a precursor for a statement rookie season. In just the 7 games prior to a season ending ACL injury, Watson completed 1,699 passing yards and 8 touchdowns. His impact was evident and was voted inside the Top 50 players in the NFL going into the 2018 season.
