Colusa County Hall of Fame – Male Student-Athlete: Julius Fisher, Williams

Julius Marthel Fisher is the son of Dedra Marthel and Val Fisher.

During his four years at William High School, Julius played basketball, baseball, track and field, but particularly excelled on the Yellowjackets football team.

A three year starter at defensive end and running back on the Yellowjackets’ varsity squad, Fisher made an immediate impact as a sophomore, finishing second in the Mid-Valley League in sacks. The Yellowjackets made the playoffs each year of his varsity football career, including his junior year when Williams made an appearance in the section title game.

In his senior year, Fisher earned all-league honors at defensive end, in addition to a team captain award.

His future plans are to attend College of the Siskiyous and continue playing football for two years to prepare himself to play at the next level. After that, Fisher plans on transferring to a four-year university, where he wants to major in sports medicine.

Some of Fisher’s greatest memories from his high school athletic career came from county rivals. During his sophomore year against Pierce, Fisher won the Rice Bowl for the Yellowjackets by scooping up a blocked punt and scoring. That same year, Williams went undefeated against Colusa County teams and won the County Cup.

In his junior year, Fisher and the Yellowjackets held onto the Rice Bowl for a second straight year. Williams faced Colusa in the first round of the playoffs that year, and it was Fisher who scored the game-sealing touchdown.

During the summer after his junior year, Fisher was ranked as the top back out of 30 runners at the Cal Contact Camp, and was also part of a first-year 7-on-7 program that was ranked in the top 10 teams in the sate.

At the end of this school year, Fisher was named the Yellowjackets’ Outstanding Senior Athlete. In football, Fisher led Williams to a third straight Rice Bowl win, scoring two touchdowns on offense, along with two sacks and a forced fumble on defense. Fisher received the varsity Track and Field Outstanding Athlete for field events.

Fisher said that he wanted to thank the Williams High School coaching staff for allowing him to shine at WHS, and letting him show them what he was capable of doing on and off the field.â–
