"If every kid was like Oliver Kaija for the rest of my coaching career I'd be pretty happy." 
says Woodstock head coach Ramsey Worrell. 
"Oliver's a throwback, I mean he plays football the way they used to. He's full throttle all the time. You'll never see him finish falling backward."

"I just go to practice two and a half hours a day, work my butt off and think about it the rest of the time." explains Kaija. "And I like to think that's whate everyone else is doing too."

Oliver is the centerpiece to Woodstock's high powered offense that is 3-0 with 160 points scored.

"I wouldn't say it's about what's on the scoreboard or about stats or anything," says the Woodstock senior. "I think it's about an atmosphere. And we came out and played Woodstock football. I guess that's the dividends of working hard during the week."

"The ultimate team player, that's why the kids voted him for captain. He's always prepared whether on the field or off the field or in the classroom. He's the consummate leader." says Worrell.
