DHS announces 2021 football schedule

The Davis football team will travel a grand total of 24 miles, round trip in the first four weeks of the season this fall. With three of its first four games at home, a lone trip to Wynnewood in week three is all the traveling the Wolves will have to do in September.
It is the same slate of games the Wolves faced in 2020 with hopefully one fewer opponent . . . . COVID-19. Now that the pandemic has subsided, Davis is hoping for 10 regular season games and no interruptions this year. The Wolves played just nine regular season games last year, as a week eight home game against Coalgate was canceled due to COVID quarantines for the Wildcats.
Davis went 7-4 in that schedule, which it will largely repeat this year. The Wolves jumped out a 4-1 record to start the 2020 campaign before hitting a rough stretch. After a pair of tough losses at Lindsay and at home against Marlow, the Coalgate cancellation pushed the Wolves to 28 days in between wins.
The final four weeks then played out similar to the first four with the Wolves winning three of them, including a playoff game. After mauling Marietta, 37-0, Davis earned its most impressive win of the season, a 29-21 victory over Frederick.
That victory secured a home playoff game against Holdenville, in a first-of-its-kind “play-in” round added to the 2020 playoffs. Davis rolled over the Wolverines before seeing its season end in a playoff loss at Norman to Community Christian.
The Wolves are hoping for another hot start in 2021 to get on a roll before their toughest district games in weeks six and beyond. Everyone is hoping for a normal season with full stadiums and a regular playoff set-up. In the meantime, the Davis players are hard at work this summer getting into shape and building the team that will represent the Red-and-White this fall.
