JV Devils show varsity-level talent in finale

Bouncing back from a loss can often be fraught with difficulties, especially when it’s the first defeat of a season.

The Davis High junior varsity football team, however, displayed no such difficulties as it defeated Elk Grove, 13-10, on Friday to finish the year at 9-1.

“They worked really hard this past week,” Blue Devil head coach Mike Satre said after the game. “Lots of enthusiasm, and a good rebound … most of them left it all out on the field.”

The game was dominated by the defenses of both teams, as neither squad gave an inch to the other. The DHS defense did its best Kansas City Chiefs impression, holding the Thundering Herd to a paltry 38 yards rushing, and also forced two turnovers.

“Our backs were against the wall,” Satre said. “We needed stops, and we got them on defense.”

One of those turnovers was an interception made by sophomore cornerback Will Bodendorfer, who outjumped an Elk Grove wideout to snare the ball. That interception gave Bodendorfer a total of eight for the season to lead the team. One of Bodendorfer’s secondary counterparts, safety Cole Morse, had a good game as well, coming up with several stops.

The other forced turnover was a strip sack by Tommy McTygue, who jumped on the loose ball to get credit for the recovery as well. His fellow pass rusher Tucker Fisk also had a sack, along with multiple tackles for a loss.

Fisk was equally impossible to stop on offense, reeling in three catches for 66 yards, many of them gained after contact.

“You can’t get away from Tucker Fisk,” Satre said. “When we called on him he’d catch a ball, make a tackle or make something happen.”

The player throwing Fisk the ball, quarterback Jack Beckman, completed his fine season in strong fashion, piloting the Devils up and down the field.

“Jack Beckman, overall … handled himself with poise,” Satre said. “He was in command.

Beckman and Fisk were helped on offense by standout running back Morse, who had 155 yards rushing and scored both Davis touchdowns. After a season that featured 1,151 yards and 18 scores, Morse appears to be in a good position to make an impact on next year’s varsity squad.

Both Satre and defensive coordinator Chuck Temple were left in a nostalgic mood after the game.

“This was a group where I’m actually bummed it’s over now,” Satre said. “Easily another three weeks, I could’ve been just as pumped to get out there every day.”

“(They’re) great kids with phenomenal talent,” Temple added. “I just wanted to keep playing with them.”
