September 5, 2012

Oakdale H.S. • Football

The entire Oakdale defense on the varsity football team would have made for a good nomination as Athlete of the Week, but fullback Josh Watts scored two first half touchdowns, making the difference during a 21-7 victory over Turlock in Oakdale’s season-opener.

Watts scored from nine yards out in the first quarter, then hauled in a two-yard pass from Spencer Thomas to put Oakdale up by a score with only 28 seconds to play in the first half. Watts finished with 58 hard-earned rushing yards on 19 carries in his first game as the primary fullback for the Mustangs. He earns Athlete of the Week recognition from The Leader for his effort.
