A Blue Devil football festival set for Saturday

The Davis High varsity squad’s Blue and White scrimmage will be the big finale, but local football fans will be treated to a full day of controlled practices by Blue Devils of all ages on Saturday.

Gates at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium open at 9 a.m. The first scrimmage, a 50-minute intrasquad clash between members of the DHS freshman team, gets the day started at 10 a.m. That will be followed by scrimmages involving the Davis Junior Blue Devil Pee Wee and Junior Pee Wee squads, leading up to an intrasquad matchup featuring the DHS junior varsity team at high noon.

Next up, more youngsters take the field as the DJBD Midgets and Junior Midgets will show their stuff. The local feeder program has more than 125 players involved and has won a remarkable five division titles in the past two seasons.

The final Junior Devil workout sets up the main event — new coach Marc Hicks’ varsity Blue Devils playing their Blue and White scrimmage at 2 p.m.

Fans should pay special attention to the DHS defense, as Hicks expects to have the players on that side of the ball fully up to speed. The Devils began two-a-day practices on Monday.

“I want to have 50 percent of the offense in place and 100 percent of the defense in place by Saturday,” Hicks told The Enterprise earlier this week. “The only reason why I only want 50 percent of the offense is because we have so many different combinations that we still have to go over and run.”

Throughout the day, DJBD cheerleaders will be urging on the players, and tri-tip sandwiches and refreshments will be available for purchase.
