Deshaun Watson is a quarterback who currently plays for the Clemson Tigers, a representative of Clemson University. He started his college career as a backup, but received extensive playing time. He was able to set a record in his first career start against the Tar Heels with six touchdown passes, but due to injury complications he was unfortunately sidelined for the majority of games that year. He returned triumphantly in 2015 however, where he led his team to an undefeated 12-0 regular season, and after the Tigers qualified for the ACC Championship Game he was named as the MVP for his stellar performance. He was later named as the Orange Bowl Offensive MVP as he helped the Tigers advance to the 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship game. Here they unfortunately lost, but Deshaun was credited for his record setting performance and ability to carry his team to success, captivating his sophomore season by throwing for 4,000 yards and rushing for 1,000.
Deshaun Watson attended Gainesville High School, where he impressively lead his football team to the state semi-finals in both his Sophomore and Senior years.
During Deshaun's high school career he wore number 4, which had been officially retired by Steve Fuller when he graduated from Clemson. Fuller generously let Deshaun continue wearing number 4, completing what was a great gesture.
