Below is a summary of the interview with Coach Watts discussing steps he feels are important for all student interested in becoming a college athlete to know that are often overlooked.

  • SAT Test
  • Knowing your core GPA and 16 core classes that have to be completed
  • Take PSAT early
    • It is important to take the PSAT so you know where you stand academically and what you need to study more for the SAT
    • Take advantage of your resources the school provides to get the help you need
