Wayne's Josh Way putting off college
BY RYAN ABER
One of the most prolific running backs in the state in recent years will put off playing college football for at least a year.
Former Wayne running back Josh Way, in Tulsa this week to compete in Friday night’s Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State football game, will take a year or two off from football, he said Thursday.
Way had signed with Northwestern Oklahoma State but an academic hangup put that into question. He said he could’ve attended NWOSU this season but financial and other considerations made sitting out a season the right move.
“I made the decision two weeks ago,” Way said. “It was a hard process but it was the right move. It was really tough. But I had some friends, coaches and other people giving me advice. I’m bummed about not getting to play this year but feel a little bit better now that it’s been decided.”
Way ran for 2,989 yards and 42 touchdowns last season, helping the Bulldogs to the Class A title.
