PAYTON NELSON Wausau West Senior Football
The Warriors safety had two interceptions in last Friday's Log Game matchup with Wausau East at Thom Field. Both of Nelson's interceptions came in the first quarter, the first of which he returned 22 yards for the opening score of the game as West went on to capture the Wausau Log. Nelson is part of a West team that has won four of its past five games and became eligible for the WIAA postseason with the victory over the Lumberjacks. West (4-3, 4-2 Valley Football Association-North Division) travels to Appleton Easton Friday for its final road game of the regular season.
