Way said he planned on lifting weights and running every day in the next year, though, to keep himself in shape for when the opportunity comes again.
“It's still my goal to play college football,” Way said. “I've got my dreams and my goals and I'm going to follow them.”
For now, Way is trying to enjoy his last football experience for awhile, though.
“Being the first All-State football player from Wayne is awesome,” he said. “I figured there would be another one like Coach (Brandon) Sharp. It's a real honor to play for my town, play for my school and my football team.”
Sharp, who coaches his alma mater, said Way's participation is a big deal for the town.
“It's exciting for our community,” Sharp said. “It just shows the hard work and dedication that Josh put in. The community is jacked up. A lot of them are going to come up and go to Tulsa to watch him.”
