Trent Watkins was a star baseball and football player for the Washington Pam Pack.
Watkins was killed in a tragic motorcycle accident on April 7, 2004. To help keep his memory alive, Watkins’ parents, Wayne and Kim Watkins, present a “Watkins Athletic Award in Memory of Trent Emery Watkins” each year on the home baseball game that falls closest to his birthday (May 2).
The awards will be presented at 6:45 p.m. today at Futrell Field, prior to Washington’s game against Havelock.
The athletes are selected by the coaching staff of their respective teams. In order to receive the award, the athletes must demonstrate strength of character and integrity; a positive attitude with the determination and drive to win; and an unquestionable dedication to the team.
