Basketball Spotlight Feature: Watkins Emerges!

Mikey Watkins (Playtime Panthers)  

The Playtime Panthers made a final four run at the Tip Off Classic and a lot of their success had to do with the play of guard Mikey Watkins. Last season Mikey quarterbacked Team IZOD 6th Grade to a very successful season now he has moved over to Playtime and added some dimensions to his game. His scoring prowess has picked and his coach Zegary Scott has also taken notice; “I just told Mikey to settle down and look to score the ball. I believe he can score on this level. He reminds me of a young Joe Jackson. He can play so many positions and is a great player to coach.” said Scott. 

Coach Scott also believes that the future looks very bright for the Union County youngster. “If Mikey continues to do the right thing in terms of development the sky is the limit for this kid. I believe he will be able to a high level player at any high school hi wishes to attend. Any high school coach will be happy to coach a player like Mikey” Scott finished. 

You can see Mikey and his Playtime teammates in action at the Basketball Spotlight MLK Classic next weekend in Chichester, PA.
