It has been a tough year for the Altus Bulldogs who sit at just 2-6 this season. The important thing about those two wins is both have come in district play meaning two wins in the final two games gets Altus in the playoffs.
"Our season goal of making the playoffs is still attainable," running back Diquon Woodhouse said. "We have to game plan well against Ardmore and work really hard in practice this week to get prepared. Even if we win the final two games by one point, we make the playoffs."
Woodhouse is the centerpiece of the Bulldog (2-6, 2-3 in District 5A-1) team. The senior running back and defensive back has been playing football since the sixth grade when he played for the Altus Renegades. He knew back then that he wanted to be a running back.
"I always wanted to play running back because I was fast," Woodhouse said. "I wanted to try quarterback at one point, but I just never got around to it. I like playing offense more than defense because I like to make defenders miss when they try to tackle me."
Now after all those years of hard work, Woodhouse is getting offers from colleges to play in their backfield. Navy, South Dakota, Wyoming and New Mexico have all offered Woodhouse who stands at 5'11 and weighs 190 pounds.
