This is great recognition for the job Coach Watkins and the entire baseball staff have done over the last two years. Over 40 road games and practicing wherever they could find space have not made it easy. A BIG thank you to Pershing MS, Patriot League Baseball, and San Carlos Rec! There have been benefits to being road warriors, as Coach Watkins says during the interview, “That time on the road built toughness in the team.”
The toughness and resilience led to a San Diego American Legion Championship last summer, numerous thrilling come-from-behind victories during the 2019 high school season, a league championship, and a #2-seed in the CIF playoffs.
Huge congratulations to Coach Sheldon Watkins, the entire baseball staff, and all the boys! Go Patriots!
