Davis Returns to the Finals

As the Davis wolves wrapped up their semifinal win over the Hennessey Eagles, there was one word on everyone's mind.


"It's a surreal feeling really, being blessed enough to do it three years in a row in a great place like this," said left tackle Jordyn Romine.

And the Wolves just keep on adding to their list of accomplishments. They've won 29 straight games, which is a school record. This will also be their third straight title game appearanc, and the of course brought home a gold ball last season.

"We could lay this same program out in a lot of different places, and I don't know how we would do, I don't know. But I know our kids are willing to take the bit and do all the things it takes to do for us to get here" said Davis head coach Jody Weber.

And Christmas season has become synonymous with championship season in Davis. And this Friday the 14-0 Wolves will take on the 14-0 Nowata Ironmen this Friday at Stillwater High School in the 2A championship game.

"Their Quarterback throws it really well, you know they're probably a run first team but they throw it for touchdowns every week. They got a great big tight end that's very fast, gets a lot of jump balls, and gets them out of trouble. Defensively they're real speed oriented and just try to overwhelm you at the point of attack," said Weber.

The Wolves dropped Nowata 28-0 back in 1995 to claim their 4th state title, and this Friday they'll look to a triple option attack to power their offense. That attack will be led by a bruising offensive line.

"The running backs are always patting the lineman on the back and telling them what a great job they're doing. They know that what they do is dependent on what we do. But our guys up front also know that if they do that job, our backs are good enough to get it into the end zone," said offensive line coach Tom Schilling.

And if things come together Friday night, the Wolves can add gold ball number six to their trophy case. Fullback Connor Webb is ready.

"It would mean everything to this team, it would just throw us over the top in excitement."
