One On One Featuring: Mikey Watkins (Playtime)

Mikey Watkins (Playtime)

Last season Mikey Watkins quarterbacked Team IZOD aka “Fly Guys” to a very successful campaign. When this season rolled around and the “Supreme Team” was formed Watkins decided to head over to Playtime and the move paid dividends for the Union County product. Watkins has had a memorable season thus far even hitting the game winner shot in the championship of the MLK Classic. We sat down with Mickey for a little conversation and here’s what he had to say.
