Former NFL Player Visits Diocesan School

PERTH AMBOY — Former NFL running back of the Cincinnati Bengals, Rodney Pete Watson, visited Perth Amboy Catholic Upper School on October 3, to help “kick-off” the school’s 25th anniversary celebration.

Watson’s address to the students, faculty, and staff was both motivational and inspirational, as he cited experiences in his lifetime that helped him and continue to help him fulfill his dreams. A product of Catholic education in New York City, Watson brought a special dimension of warmth to his program which echoed the profound influence his days at Most Holy Redeemer grammar school had on his life. The students listened in awe and eagerly responded to Watson’s interactive presentation, which was characterized by laughter as well as serious points for reflection. A spontaneous standing ovation marked the student body’s appreciation for all that Watson shared with them and challenged them to achieve.
