Watertown’s Rusty Staats has committed to play football at Air Force.

“They blew my mind,” Staats said. “The facilities and everything there was crazy. I loved it. The thing that did it for me was the after-football stuff. Once I do get done with football, it’s setting me up to do what I want to do … that kind of stuff.”

Junior Year

Staats is a 6-foot-4, 270-pound senior offensive lineman who will be a four-year starter for the Purple Tigers, helping the team to an 8-3 record last fall and a second-place finish in Region 4-2A. He was a 4-2A All-Region selection.
