by - Assoc. Editor -

Deshaun Watson grew up playing football in the community of Gainesville, Georgia and much of his personal and athletic success can be attributed to his early playing days from pee-wee football to his high school days starting for the Red Elephants.

The Gainesville community sent in a video wishing their hometown hero good luck for tonight's Heisman Trophy ceremony.

"Deshaun you have been such an inspiration to everybody back in Gainesville," a Gainesville citizen said. "Even if you don't know it you put a smile on little kids' faces and even sometimes adult faces."
