DHS varsity footballers happy to come home

Winfred Roberson gains some ground against the Woodland Wolves in a road victory earlier this season. The Blue Devils hope to rebound from a pounding they took a week ago at Franklin (No. 2 in the region and a traditional powerhouse in the strong Delta Valley Conference). The Devils are led by head coach Steve Smyte, a former assistant at Boise State and UC Davis. Wayne Tilcock/Enterprise file photo

Fun for all on Friday

* Homecoming Parade, themed “A Hogwarts Homecoming,” starts at 1:15 p.m. at Central Park, Fourth and C streets in downtown Davis. The parade will make its way through downtown before heading up B Street to the high school. Participants will include
students, staff and community members, while the class floats will pay homage to the houses of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from J.K. Rowling’s best-selling Harry Potter series.

Homecoming Carnival precedes the football games outside Ron & Mary Brown Stadium, featuring information booths, food and crafts for children.

* The JV game vs. Laguna Creek starts at 5 p.m. with the varsity game at 7:15 p.m. The Homecoming king and queen will be crowned at halftime of the varsity game.

It has already been a bounce-back season for the Davis High School varsity football team.

The Blue Devils sport a 4-3 record that includes more victories than they’ve had in a season since 2007, DHS’ last Sac-Joaquin Section playoff appearance.

And on Friday night at 7:15 p.m., the Devils come back to Halden Field at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium for their Homecoming game against Laguna Creek (2-5, 2-0). It’s a place where they have outscored their past two opponents — Foothill on Aug. 31 and Armijo on Sept. 7 — 102-7.

Since those games, there have been other highlights for Davis, including a dominating 40-0 victory at rival Woodland and a 42-7 road win at Monterey Trail in the Delta Valley Conference opener. That triumph came over a Mustangs squad that has been in the section championship contest two of the past three seasons.

How have the Blue Devils done it?

A balanced offense that has averaged 33.3 points per game is led by quarterback Grant Dickerson. The solidly built signal-caller has thrown for 1,339 yards and 14 touchdowns and is on pace to break school records in both those areas.

He has done it behind the protection of offensive lineman like Bray Harwood, Brian Stabenfeldt, Bailey Murray, Nick Denton and Oscar Sepulveda, among others, and by throwing to a group of pass catchers that is one of the best in the area.

Receivers C.K. Hicks (27 catches for 521 yards and four TDs) and Kevin Sorensen (22 catches for 461 yards and six TDs) join tight end Brendan MacDonald as DHS’ main threats.

The local defense also has been strong, allowing seven or fewer points in each of the Devils’ four wins and posting two shutouts.
