Though the Davis High football has won six of its last 12 games dating back through last season, even when the Blue Devils were struggling through one- and two-win seasons they could always count on a victory over struggling Armijo.
This year’s contest — set for Friday night at 7:30 p.m. in Fairfield — should be no different as the Indians are coming off of a 42-0 loss in their opener, while DHS (1-1) proved its mettle in a 30-7 win over Foothill last week.
In former Devil star running back Marc Hicks’ first triumph as Davis’ head coach, it is fitting that locals did it with an outstanding running game.
Running behind a solid Blue Devil line — and against an Armijo defense that allowed nearly 400 yards on the ground in its first contest — bruising Winfred Roberson (162 yards and one touchdown last week) and slashing Talek Deary (165, two TDs) should carry DHS to a big victory.
The Devils are also hoping that junior quarterback Quinten Jones can get it going in his third varsity game.
