Personal Message

Prospective Coaches,

My name is Kyshon Watkins and I'm a class of 2019 football prospect that attends James M. Bennett HS in Salisbury Maryland and I have dreams of playing at the collegiate level. My desire to play football is like a relationship. I consistently put forth the effort to make it satisfying, while obtaining knowledge and utilizing skills that will create something that’s long lasting, fulfilling, and effective. From the first time I can recall seeing Ray Lewis play football, I have emulated him. He was motivated by his positioning as a team player. He had a hard hitter style, and he was determined. He was a servant leader. He did what he expected his teammates to do. He led by example. Similarly, when I play football, I see no “I” in team. I see the team as a brotherhood of like-minded players providing their individual talents and skills to a sport where one vision, one dream, and one mission, wins games. As a brotherhood, we strive together, we ride together, we encourage, we assist, we win. If my brothers fall short, I move into position to hold them up and be there as a great supporter.

I recall a game where our team was 28-0 at halftime. My team of brothers started to get down on themselves and wanted to give up. They began to complain and become angry at the thought that our team might lose the game. I immediately asked the coach if I could talk to the team. I explained to them that just because the score showed one thing did not mean that the game was over. The game is not over until the last second expires. I let them know that the game had just begun. We won the game with a score of 28-58. For me, failure is never an option especially when it comes to football. I am always motivated to win and encourage myself and others that we can always do what we set our vision and mission to achieve.

Football is about building character and representing my team to best of my ability, utilizing and relying upon the talents and skills of the other players. Even if we lost a game, I always said, “It ain’t over yet,” which means we will work harder during the next game and even harder than the last. I liken my football philosophy to the body; all the parts need each other to work effectively. For example, fingers don’t work without the hand. Feet don’t work without toes, and my brain doesn’t work without my heart, which filters the blood and allows my brain to instruct me in what the whole of me should do.

I believe that my excellent motivational, academic, and physical skills, as well as my strong belief in my peers on and off the field, will be a great addition to your team. I am respectfully requesting the opportunity to be considered as a recruit for your 2019 recruiting class.
