Deshaun Watson: From Falcons ball boy to potential National Champion

BY foxsports • January 10, 2016

In case you didn't know, Clemson Tigers quarterback Deshaun Watson grew up a fan of the Atlanta Falcons. Not only that, but he spent some of his time in high school working as a ball boy for the team as well.

In the video below from the official YouTube channel of the Falcons, you can hear what Watson had to say about his time with the team.

Obviously, there's a good chance that fans will be seeing plenty of Watson, not only in the 2016 National Championship game against the Alabama Crimson Tide, but down the road in the NFL also. Watson has a bright career ahead of him, and it's pretty great to hear about his love of Falcons football.
