Junior Devils send a posse to postseason pigskin parties

The Davis Junior Blue Devils will be well represented in the Sacramento youth football world’s postseason.

Five Midget-level players — Ish Perez, Jesus Jimenez, Jakob Lee, Sam Simon and Cosmo Kasapligil — along with cheerleaders Allison Kilmer, Rachel Ramirez and Lexi Vitangcol are headed to the Youth Shrine Game on Saturday, Nov. 17, at Sacramento City College.

Twelve others DJBD players have been selected for Sacramento Youth League All-Star squads, with games to be played Saturday at El Dorado High. The Nov. 17 Shrine Game features only eighth-graders.

Perez was the leading rusher for Davis’ Midget Blue squad, while lineman Jimenez just finished his second year as an offensive and defensive starter.

“His strengths are his speed off the ball and his 100 percent effort,” Midget coach Marty Morse said of Jimenez. “He is a great open-field blocker and has recorded several sacks this season.”

Lineman Kasapligil was selected by players as a captain, and proved his role as team leader weekly.

Lee played almost every snap of the season and was another team captain.

“(Lee) is a natural leader with a great sense of humor, and if he were to run for president … he would win by a landslide,” joked Devil coach Paul Buller.

Simon, a tight end in only his first season, was a quick learner on the field. His highlights included a 76-yard touchdown reception to win a game against Casa Robles.

The Davis players going to next weekend’s all-star games include Junior Pee Wee running back Jude Vaughn and lineman Jamie McNear. In addition, Pee Wee players headed to El Dorado are Payne Barksdale, Luke Carrell, Keifer Jones, Jeremiah Jones (no relation), Kel Williams and Taylor Vaughn.

“The future of Davis football looks bright,” said Pee Wee coach Craig Barksdale.

The Junior Midgets chosen for the Saturday’s game are bruising running back Zach Thornburgh, versatile Luke Maffly, lineman Joe Morrison, middle linebacker Will Smith, tight end Bo Van Court and lineman Jacob Miller.
