OFFENSE

Teams in Class 2A might be thinking to themselves that finally that pesky Davis team might not wreak havoc on us this year. But don’t bet against them either. It’s true there are changes for the Wolves in 2018. Greg Parker has been elevated to head coach but he (and several of the assistants) have been on staff for over 20 years so don’t look for any big changes in the way they do business. Davis did incur a lot of graduation losses, so Parker and company will have to zero in on finding the guys who are ready to step up. That will start at quarterback where Devon Gregg (6-1, 185, Sr.) will take over after performing mop-up duties last year. Another plus is that Gregg is also the returning place kicker. The running game out of the wishbone offense will also be in new hands with Jared Brown (6-0, 210, Sr.) at fullback and Dakota Coberly (5-9, 165, Sr.) at one of the halfback spots. Three-year starters George Thomas (6-0, 190, Sr.) and Brenden Hobbs (6-1, 250, Sr.) will anchor the offensive line where they’ll be joined by Jace Idleman (5-10, 210, Sr.) at center.

DEFENSE

There are a handful of starters back for the Wolves on defense led by linebacker Cooper Webb (6-2, 225, Jr.) who had 71 tackles and four sacks in addition to being a state champion wrestler. Gregg and Brown return at defensive back and lineman respectively. Relative newcomers to the defense will be Cole Martin (5-10, 175, Jr.) and Dane Parker (5-8, 180, Jr) at linebackers, and Trey Parker (5-8, 160, Jr.) in the secondary. The Wolves will operate out of the 5-2 defense and utilize that same disciplined, aggressive play that have been a hallmark of Davis football. As Parker says,

“If you don’t play aggressive and chase the ball, you don’t play defense.”

So, although there may be some chinks in the armor for Davis this season, Parker is confident his team will be there again at playoff time.

“Although there have been a lot of changes, the players are the same Davis players that have been here forever. Ignore size and weight. We will continue to play ‘Davis football’ with no quarter asked and none given. Just strap it up and let’s play.”
