BRIEFS: Devil fans can play coach

By
August 8, 2010 |

On Tuesday, the helmets go on and the practices get serious as Davis High begins the 2010 football season.

And despite all the XÕs and OÕs dancing through the heads of the 40-plus Blue Devil hopefuls at Halden Field, head coach Steve Smyte still will find room for one more play each week Ñ plays that will come via the suggestions of Davis Enterprise readers.

ÒI think we can have some fun with this,Ó first-year grid mentor Smyte says. ÒJust give our QBs time to throw Ñ some real protection.Ó

For each of the 10 regular season games, Smyte will choose one offensive play submitted by Enterprise readers. Smyte, a former UC Davis and Boise State assistant coach, promises to

insert the plays in practice and run one a game.

Each week, as part of staff writer Bruce GallaudetÕs new Tuesday Morning Quarterback feature, the play picked for the previous weekendÕs game will be reviewed, its creator spotlighted and the winning grid guruÕs picture published with the breakdown.

As fun as simply having a play used (and credited) will be, thereÕs more!

Each selected entrant will receive a Blue Devil T-shirt and Chipotle lunch card. The play that gains the most yardage on the season will earn its designer a cooler, tailgate supplies and two tickets to an Oakland Raiders game.

ÒIt could be that Smyte and the Blue Devils will be so successful with a readerÕs play, that weÕll see it more than once during a game or the season,Ó Gallaudet explains. ÒThat yardage will be cumulative in deciding the winner.Ó

The season opens Sept. 3 at Armijo with the first home game slated for new Halden Field on Oct. 1 vs. Franklin.

Want a hint before submitting your play? Smyte has installed a spread, pro-set offense that, according to the coach, has flavors of those offenses run at Boise and Alabama.

To enter, submit your play diagram and a 25-words-or-less explanation about what youÕre trying to accomplish. Send them to The Play, c/o The Davis Enterprise, 315 G St. or drop them off at

the newspaper office. E-mail entries also are accepted. Send e-mails to bgallaudet@davisenterprise.net.

Deadline for all entries is Aug. 26.

Winners will be announced each week after the game in which their play is used.

DHS volleyball

Tryouts for athletes who are interested in playing varsity, JV and freshman Blue Devil girls volleyball this fall start Monday and will last as long as needed to form teams.

Workouts that week will go from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Ñ with a break Ñ and times my change after that but practice will continue through the school year.
