Joined by family and friends, Cole Watts, a multi-sport athlete at Montezuma, signed a National Letter of Intent to play basketball for Brad Biorkgren and the Storm at Simpson College in Indianola for the 2021-22 season. Joining Cole at the signing on Thursday, Jan. 21 were his parents, David and Peggy Watts, and brother, Garrett.
"I'm very proud of Cole for getting the opportunity to further his academic and athletic career,” noted Braves Coach Derrick Dengler. “Cole has faced some adversity, including missing almost his entire sophomore season due to injury. It says a lot about his character and resolve to be able to bounce back from that. He has had a great athletic career at Montezuma and I think Simpson is getting one heck of a player.”
“I’m excited to play basketball at Simpson, but it was really all thanks to the people in my life who have helped me along the way,” said Cole.
