While their varsity brothers are enjoying their most successful season since 2007, the Davis High junior varsity footballers have been impressive in their own right.
After dropping their opener, the Blue Devils went on a five-game winning streak that saw contributions coming from all over the field.
In the three contests before last week’s bump in the road — a loss to Franklin — DHS’ defense shut out its opponent in two of three games.
That stingy defense has been opportunistic, forcing an amazing 10 turnovers in those three outings. Interceptions have come from Cole Morris, Evan Loy and all-around standout Nate Curtis, while foes have been forced into fumbles by the strong play of guys like Logan James, who also has several sacks.
Curtis, Morse and quarterback Quentin Jones have led the way for the Devil offense, with Bailey Yarrow supplying big-play ability.
And most important at the JV level, the Davis coaching staff, which is led by head coach Mike Satre, has been doing its job preparing the Blue Devils to contribute on varsity.
DHS head coach Steve Smyte said earlier this week that he is looking forward to all the talent he will see moving up to his varsity squad next fall.
