Darius Woods Senior defensive lineman Woodcreek High School football Mounting a late charge in the final days of voting, Woodcreek defensive lineman Darius Woods overtook Roseville’s Mike Moreno to capture the December athlete of the month nod with 57-percent of the vote. Woods led the Woodcreek defense as the Timberwolves put together the best football season in school history. Woodcreek reached the section semifinals at the end of a 6-6 campaign. The Sierra Foothill League coaches voted Woods the league’s defensive MVP, as the talented lineman overcame double-team attention to record seven tackles and nearly one sack per game in the 2008 football season.
