's former high school football coach Bruce Miller told USA Today Sports that he agreed with the way his former pupil Deshaun Watson is currently being used in football games at Clemson.

"They're handling it the right way," Miller told USA Today. "They're moving slow, and I think that is one of the best things you can do with a player like Deshaun. Don't get so excited and throw him to the wolves because the next one they're facing THE wolf."

Miller warns about playing youngsters too soon even if they appear ready.

"They know what they're doing," Miller said. "You have to be careful with him because I've seen so many young quarterbacks thrown out there before they're ready. He's always been calm and cool but he's on a bigger stage now and I'm sure he'll handle it well when they call on him."
