Keala Watson was a tough defensive lineman for the Warriors. But he’s only the second-toughest in his household. His wife, Leona, recently gave birth to the couple’s first child, Alapa. A few days later, Leona was back in school. Leona and Keala are on track to earn their bachelor’s degrees in May.
