OTTUMWA, IA – Josh, Brenda, and the team at Meridian Credit Union in Ottumwa, along with Ottumwa Radio Group, want to congratulate Ottumwa football player Abaya Selema, our 101.5 KKSI-FM Athlete of the Week!
The junior set a new school record for rushing yards in the Bulldogs’ 54-6 Homecoming win over Cedar Rapids Jefferson, snapping a 13-game losing streak in the process. Selema carved up the J-Hawks defense to the tune of 390 yards on a mere 14 carries, six of which went for touchdowns. Entering the game, Selema had a total of 52 rushing yards on 12 carries through the first four games for Ottumwa. He and the Bulldogs return to the gridiron Friday hoping to build on their victory on the road against Linn-Mar.
Our KKSI-FM Athlete of the Week program is made possible thanks to the generosity of Meridian Credit Union, and the cooperation of our area schools. This is a great accomplishment and one to be very proud of. Please join us in congratulating Abaya Selema! All of us at Ottumwa Radio Group wish you continued success in your athletic and educational endeavors.
