Proctor finished an amazing season with the Owasso Rams by winning the Class 6AI state title over Union High School under first year head coach Bill Blankenship. Proctor has signed his letter of intent to play at The Ohio State University next fall.

A weapon for Owasso, Proctor was utilized on both sides of the ball playing defensive back and wide receiver. Winning the Shelter Insurance Mr. Football Award was a humbling experience for Proctor.

“It’s an honor to win Mr. Football. I want to thank my teammates, coaches and family for believing in me. I’m honored to join a list with so many great players that came before me,” said Proctor.

VYPE Magazine Publisher Austin Chadwick said of Proctor, “It is with great pride we present Josh with the 2017 Mr. Football award. He stands out in a long list of amazing winners. Josh may be one of the best athletes to come out of Oklahoma in quite some time. He was a special player and because of his willingness to play any position the coaches asked and his willingness to be a coachable player, he rewarded his team, coaches and the community of Owasso with being a leader who helped win a state title in Oklahoma’s largest class. Upending the 20-year Union-Jenks dominance.”
