Devils get three on All-DVC first team

Enterprise staff writer

\n

Honored for their courage and persistence in the face of an injury-laden 1-9 season, the Davis High varsity football team was feted by more than 100 relatives and fans on Saturday night at Holmes Junior High School.

\n

Urging his players to “autograph everything you do with excellence,” Blue Devils first-year head coach Steve Smyte presented squad and league honors before providing verbal vignettes about each of his players.

\n

DHS junior quarterback Shayne Reagan and senior tight end Peter Smith both were accorded first-team All-Delta Valley Conference awards. Reagan added the team\’s Offensive Player of the Year award, while Smith earned the Defensive Player of the Year designation.

\n

Senior wide receiver Dillard Brown was also a first-team All-DVC selection with Devil senior running back Courtney Williams and outside linebacker Will Glaeser getting picked to the second team. Honorable mentions went to OL Blair Kittle, center Lucas Brattesani and linebacker/tight end Corey Nelson.

\n

Other team honors went to Kittle (Outstanding Lineman) and Derrick Coronado (Special Teams Player of the Year) while the Iron Blue Devil Award for toughness was received by Glaeser and

\n

Brattesani took the Blue Devil Award, reserved for the most inspiring Davis player.

\n

Reagan threw for 1,519 yards and a school-record 18 touchdowns, while completing 46 percent of his passing attempts. He also rushed for 245 yards and two touchdowns.

\n

Reagan also set a DHS single-game mark with five TD passes against Elk Grove in a 45-37 loss on Oct. 29.

\n

“We expect twice as many touchdowns from Shayne next year,” Smyte said while a laughing Reagan accepted his honor.

\n

Smith was wicked on both sides of the ball. Despite missing playing time due to a toe injury, the 6-foot-2, 225-pound senior tight end caught 33 passes for 535 yards and six TDs. As a linebacker, he accounted for 46 tackles and recovered a team-high four fumbles.

\n

Senior two-way performer Brown caught 15 passes for 171 yards and four scores. He also played defensive back and returned kicks. Brown missed three games after suffering a perforated eardrum in the 43-20 setback to Wood on Sept. 17.

\n

Despite ankle and thigh injuries that cost him the better part of five games, Williams rushed for 523 yards, caught 12 passes for 177 yards and scored three touchdowns. Williams also had two scores called back because of Devil penalties.

\n

Williams rushed for 1,054 yards as a junior.

\n

The versatile senior Kittle led the team in sacks (two) and was second in tackles (62), while playing both ways as a lineman. He missed most of 2009 with a knee injury.

\n

Linebacker Glaeser had 58 tackles and carried the ball five times for 20 yards.

\n

Nelson, a junior who played inside linebacker and tight end, accounted for a team-high

\n

86 tackles. On offense, Nelson — whose primary chore was blocking — caught five passes for 20 yards.

\n

“This is a team that truly cared for each other,” the personable — and on this night, funny — Smyte added. “This is a great group of (kids) who weren\’t afraid to express who they were. And they always put the team first. Always.”

\n

Notes: The evening started with an entertaining film recap of 2010, edited and produced by back-up Devil quarterback — and DHS basketball player — Brandon Hassid. … Rich Jenness, president of the Davis Blue Devil Football Backers (which put on the event), thanked supporters and the banquet committee. … Smyte reminded his staff that it\’s the wives and girlfriends of his coaches, “that are the real people that make it happen.” … Smyte\’s All-Academic Team had 16 members, headed by Kittle, Hassid and receiver Kristian Mackewicz, all with 4.0 grade-point averages.
