This week's Craw-Kan "Your Community Technology Partner" Team of the Week from Southeast Kansas is the Oswego High School Indians football team led by first year head coach Matt Fowler.
Oswego improved to 4-1 on the season with a 48-44 win over West Elk on Friday. Jace Wilson had an incredible night for the Indians as he had 20 carries for 278 yards with six rushing touchdowns, he also added a TD reception. Wilson had nine tackles on defense as well.
The Indians have four wins in a season for the first time since 2010 and were just 1-8 last year prior to Fowler's arrival.
Oswego has been one of the most improved teams in Southeast Kansas after going 1-8 last year. The move to 8-man football under Fowler, who won a state title recently at Spearville, has also seemed to be benefcial this season. The Indians will be a team on the rise in the future.
