SHUKC Player Spotlight (BJ Watson)

BJ Watson (Park University)

I got hit up this week by my good friend Bryan Watson who was looking to get a highlight put together for his son BJ.  BJ was a part of a talented team at Bonner Springs back in the early days of SHUKC.  I obviously was tied up a bit with the All Star game but I was ready to jump right in to help a friend.

Here is another story about a the path less traveled when it comes to continuing your basketball career.  Many around the city knows about the stellar path of Neil Watson but BJ is following in those same footsteps.  After two seasons with Hutchinson Community College, BJ moved on to Park University where he averaged 15.6 ppg, 4 assists, 2 steals in 2017.

“It was a journey, that I’ve been coming from Hutch and barely playing at all, said BJ Watson. Park gave me that opportunity (I) didn’t care that it was NAIA, I just wanted to play. Once I got that chance just wanted to work as hard as I could to successful. Hard work truly pays off.”

In 2016 he was third team all conference and this past season was first team and gained honorable mention All American honors.

Hard work and determination can and will pay off and this story should serve as another positive example of that.  Check out BJ’s 2017 highlights!
