Cornerbacks coach Tre Watson is in his first year at UNLV, but it figures to be a successful stint. He’s no stranger to overcoming the odds and finding ways to stand out on the field.

After being an integral part of the defensive back success at Oregon where he was a grad assistant, Watson is now tasked with repeating that success with UNLV.
