Player spotlight: PCS's Woullard a hidden gem

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Some say his competition is not the best. Some also say numbers never lie. So how do you explain the case of Presbyterian Christian's Isaiah Woullard?

The young man only rushed for 3,000 yards and over 20 touchdowns as a junior in 2015.

One would think this would have college coaches lining up at his door. But, that is not the case.

It was not that long ago that Woullard's only offer was from The University of Southern Mississippi.

He recently received an offer from the University of Idaho. He is still holding out to see what else his talents can present him.

Woullard hears the doubts.

"The league," Woullard said reflecting on the whispers. "(It's) Private (school). Guess its slow. Soft and its not the best but it's pretty good."

The lack of attention is not the only factor driving the legs of Woullard. He wants to win, no doubt.

In the shadows of the Friday night lights is Woullard's work ethic.

"Oh yeah he was pulling tires (Monday) after practice late," Bobcats coach Joey Hawkins said. "I said look, cut it off. We got a game in 72 hours. We're going to make sure he goes home and rest after today."

And as far as the lack of recruiting interest, Hawkins is not feeding into it.

"Look, he can play anywhere and everybody knows that," he said. "I really don't listen to that."

PCS opens the season against West Marion at Oak Grove Thursday. This will begin the final high school campaign for Woullard.

He has one final message to the doubters.

"I just say watch this year," Woullard said. "I'm going to go all out. Leave it all out there. That's all I gotta say about that."
