Blazers PG Earl Watson Gets Kindergarten Named After Him in Hometown
Trail Blazers point guard Earl Watson’s hometown decided to show him some love for all the tremendous work that he has done for the community with a building named in his honor at Hazel Grove Elementary School in Wyandotte County (WYCO), Kansas.
Watson shared the news on his facebook page, uploading a picture of the text messgae he received informing him of the great honor:
Best news of my life! Has me tearing up… Everyone that has doubted me, hurt me, questioned my ability to care for my daughter… This says it all! Follow your heart! No matter what obstacle you face! Christ not only moves obstacles but he also moves hearts! My responsibility just grew! I’m forever indebted to Hazel Grove elementary! #humbled #speechless
With all the negative things continually going on in the sports community, it’s refreshing to acknowledge athletes that are doing it right as well.
