In the past two years, Plymouth South senior running back Dylan Oxsen has more than carried the load for the Panthers. But, even in a string of tough-nosed performances, Oxsen may have outdone himself in Friday's 27-6 win over Atlantic Coast League rival Nauset.
Oxsen ran for 243 yards and four touchdowns on 37 carries against the Warriors. Even more impressive is the fact that Oxsen put up those numbers after missing the Panthers' previous game with an ankle injury.
For his efforts, Oxsen was named our Player of the Week, presented by Sports Authority and the Bay State Games.
Editor Brendan Hall caught up with Oxsen for this interview Monday:
