Eight Owatonna football players were named to the Big Southeast All-District team, including the Offensive Player of the Year. Four others earned a spot on the honorable mention team. Junior Jason Williamson landed the top offensive honor for the Red Division after racing for nearly 2,000 yards.
The Huskies football team is facing adversity for the first time this season. After sending nearly every game through the first six weeks into running time, the Huskies dropped a 21-17 dual to Northfield Friday night in a battle of top-five clubs.
Owatonna football is averaging more than 500 yards of offense each game. Junior running back Jason Williamson is eating up the turf at a 190 yard per-game pace. The newly-minted No. 1-5A Huskies (6-0) faces possibly their toughest test of the regular season when they play at No. 5-5A Northfield (6-0) Friday night at 7PM.
Another week, another big game for Owatonna junior running back Jason Williamson. He set a single-game OHS rushing record with about 335 yards in Friday's 46-7 win over Rochester Century. That breaks the mark set by Sam Hylle against Austin in 2015.
