Junior varsity Devils run over Oakmont

Davis High School: where running backs are made.

In improving to 3-2 on the season, with a 14-6 win over Oakmont on Friday, the Davis High junior varsity football team passed the ball just four times, and not once in the second half.

Kevin Sorensen led the Blue Devil running game with 192 yards on 26 attempts for an outstanding average of 7.4 yards per carry. Sorensen also had one of DHSÕ two receptions, pulling in a 20-yard pass from quarterback Grant Dickerson.

The other catch made by the Devils came late in the second quarter when Dickerson threw to Daniel Martin on a slant over the middle. Martin snagged the pass and ran the rest of the way for a 21-yard touchdown to put Davis up, 7-0.

In the third quarter, Oakmont had a chance to take the lead after scoring a touchdown, but Willie Hawkins batted down a two-point conversion pass attempt and the Blue Devils maintain their advantage at 7-6. When DHS got back on offense, Sorensen rumbled for a 46-yard touchdown, that was set up by a nice block from Adam King.

DavisÕ defense had a key role in the game as well, most notably on a four-down goal-line stand in the fourth quarter. Turnovers were aplenty as Dickerson, Brandon Hooker, J.C. Roecki-Navazio and Noah Sonne all recovered fumbles, and Mike McTygue had a key interception in the fourth quarter.

Devil kicker Thomas May continued to be a reliable source of points, nailing both extra points. In addition, MayÕs kickoffs all sailed past the 10-yard line.

ÒI think that the first couple of series we did a really good job on both offense and defense,Ó said DHS coach Mike Satre. Specifically, he Òwas pleased with how the line performed. Sorensen was outstanding, Dickerson was outstanding.Ó

As for the defense, Satre was especially happy with the way the team played together:

ÒYou canÕt pick one guy. As a unit they played really well.Ó

While Sorensen has been fantastic since switching to running back from his spot as receiver, the Blue Devil running game will be even more lethal when Tanna Stevens rejoins the team. Stevens hasnÕt been with the JV team all year due to a mixture of filling in on varsity and being injured. Stevens is questionable for FridayÕs contest at Franklin (5 p.m.), but he expects to be ready to go by DavisÕ Homecoming Game on Oct. 15.
