At the age of 6, his parents signed him up to play Pee Wee Football, and he took to it with the intensity that would come to define him later in life. “He was the youngest, smallest guy on the team,” says his mother, Melba Watts. “He would get very upset if there was any reason to miss practice. He just insisted that he never missed a practice, which meant we had like one month a year where we could go anywhere as a family.” As Watts grew older, he got into other sports as well: soccer, track and, starting in middle school, wrestling, which soon became an all-consuming passion. To hear Watts tell it, there was something different about wrestling.
