It’s no coincidence that 10 of the 11 defensive starters on Oakdale High’s varsity football team received first team All-Valley Oak League selections. The Oakdale defense has been spectacular in 2012, and landed tremendous performances in both conference play and the Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs.
They saved their best for their final game of section play. Oakdale forced five turnovers and dominated the field with an outstanding performance as Oakdale bested Vista del Lago in the Division III championship game.
Their collective play made for an easy selection as Athlete of the Week from The Leader.
