Oakdale High sophomore quarterback, Spencer Thomas, has displayed superb athleticism all season, with ever-increasing poise well beyond his age as a first-year varsity Mustang starter.
His talent and savvy was on brilliant display on Nov. 26 during Oakdale’s 41-19 victory over visiting Casa Roble in the Sac-Joaquin Section Division III semifinal.
With Rams defenders keying on inside rushes from Marcus Hernandez and outside sprints from Daniel Linder, Thomas made defenders pay with 99 passing yards (two touchdowns) and a perfect 4-for-4 showing under center.
He also ran in a touchdown in the third quarter, and rallied Oakdale to one of its most impressive second halves of an already illustrious season.
The playmaking quarterback earns a well-deserved Athlete of the Week selection from The Leader for his efforts.
Thomas led Oakdale into a section championship bout with Del Oro on Saturday, one more chance to continue his progression in a season that has showcased the sophomore’s abilities and potential.
