Keala Watson retired from football

About being forced to retire from football, Keala Watson (who will earn a bachelor’s degree in environmental studies in May and whose wife Leona is expecting their first child in February) said:
“I had a good run, I’ve been blessed.” (HA)

HA Note: “Watson had a productive career with the Warriors despite suffering from Von Willebrand disorder, a condition similar to hemophilia in which a chemical deficiency does not allow his blood to clot normally. A blood-clotting medicine enabled Watson to play for the Warriors. But recent medical tests showed that the medication had diminished efficiency in treating his disorder.”
