Cam Watson Signs With Presbyterian College


Senior Cam Watson signed to continue his football career at Presbyterian College on Friday, March 29.

Presbyterian College is a liberal arts school located in Clinton, South Carolina. PC is an NCAA Division I school in the Big South Conference.

Watson committed to playing for the Blue Hose as a tight end. He will be pursuing a Biology degree on the pre-med track.

“I’m excited that he has achieved the goals that he set for himself when he chose to come to Darlington.  He took a chance to leave home and trust that Darlington could be a vehicle to help him grow and prepare for the opportunity to attend a great academic school and continue to pursue his passion for football. Cam’s competitive spirit and mental and physical toughness have enabled him to get where he is today,” Head Football Coach Tommy Atha said.

Although Watson had other opportunities to pursue his football career, Presbyterian stood out.

“When I took my official visit to PC, the first thing that I noticed was that the coaches and the players treated each other like family and to me, that is something that is very important. It was ultimately one of the reasons I ended up picking PC,” Watson said.

In addition to athletic opportunities, Watson believes that Presbyterian will be a good fit academically.

“Presbyterian is really known for its strong Biology program, which was also a major reason I decided to go to PC. PC does a great job of maintaining well-rounded student-athletes, and I think that even with me being on the pre-med track, I will still be able to have time to enjoy my football career and excel in the classroom,” Watson said.

Watson is grateful for the opportunity to continue playing and is looking forward to preparing himself for his future.

“The fact that I will be able to get a great degree while simultaneously getting the opportunity to play the sport I love at a high level is a blessing. I’m looking forward to setting myself up to succeed later on in life and gaining the knowledge I need to get myself into the [graduate] school of my choice,” Watson said.
