Danville Football

The Blue Devils fell one win shy of the program’s third state semifinal
appearance and first since 2004 by dropping a 48-46 shootout to eventual
state runner-up Newark Catholic in the regional final. That squad
relied on offense (scored 457 points). This year’s rendition will lean
on defense.

*Danville (11-2, Region 23 finalist): The Blue Devils fell one win shy of the program’s third state semifinal appearance and first since 2004 by dropping a 48-46 shootout to eventual state runner-up Newark Catholic in the regional final. That squad relied on offense (scored 457 points). This year’s rendition will lean on defense.

Three-year lettermen and senior DEs Conway Baldridge (6-3, 185/109 tackles, 21 TFL) and Andy Payne (6-4, 260/97 tackles/13 TFL) bookend a unit deep in experience.

Danville returns five of its top six tacklers, including senior TE/LB Marshall Magers (6-1, 175/155 tackles, seven TFL), senior LB Thomas Hawk (6-0, 165/139 tackles) and senior LB Austin Gonzales (5-10, 195/91 tackles, six TFL).

If the Devils offense can rebuild quickly, watch out.
