LOWELL, Mich. (WZZM) - WZZM and Meijer are pleased to recognize Lowell High School senior Pierce Watson as our WZZM/Meijer scholar athlete of the week for the week of October first.

Pierce is a defensive end and tight end on the Red Arrow football team. He also wrestles and competes in track and field.

A sensational student, Pierce carries a 4.2 grade point average and would like to go into the field of biomedical engineering after college.

Away from school and sports, Pierce enjoys gospel music and sings at his church. He started taking piano lessons as a child and now is able to play by ear. He even composes his own music.

Pierce lists playing in the state championship at Ford Field as his biggest athletic thrill. He is undecided on a college but tells WZZM he is interested in attending Michigan or possibly Ohio State.

WZZM and Meijer congratulate Pierce Watson for his achievements and wish him continued success!
