Blake Oliaro, a 2009 graduate of Folsom High and current sophomore at the University of San Diego, was named the Pioneer Football League's co-defensive Player of the Week for his performance in San Diego's 55-14 win over Valparaiso on Saturday. The 6'5", 250-pound defensive end registered seven solo tackles, four quarterback sacks and an interception. His four sacks is one shy of a school record at San Diego. Through six games, Oliaro leads the team in sacks with seven and his fourth on the team with 25 tackles, including a team-leading 10 for loss. Oliaro has also forced one fumble and blocked a kick.
