It’s been two years since Palm Beach County Legend and longtime Palm Beach Atlantic assistant coach Tony Watson took over the Forest Hill High School Boys basketball program. Dare I say, Forest Hill is no longer an “easy win”. As a matter of fact, if you’re not prepared, you may not just lose a game, you may get blown out. Coach Watson and the boys are having fun, and it shows. Boys are dunking, runnin' 'n gunnin', shooting three's, defending and they’re doing this by platoon, subbing 5 at a time. Yes, that’s right, 5 at a time. Last time I saw that was at 3rd grade rec league game.
