Many students believe that homecoming is the biggest week of the year. The Davis High School football team will play Elk Grove High at the homecoming game on Sept. 26.
“There’s a lot of pressure at a home game but being homecoming, there is extra pressure to win in front of everybody,” sophomore and JV football player Tony Munoz said. The coaches put more emphasis on preparation for the game as well this week with extra conditioning for the players.
“Our team knows to work even harder this week because we know how much a win would mean to our school,” sophomore and JV player Conor Bunfill said.
JV football player and sophomore Miles Lampley said in order for the team to win, the players need to stay energized.
“After practices and before games our captains will talk to us and get us pumped up,” Lampley said.
Lampley hopes that the Blue Devils can keep their energy and excitement up throughout the game and not lose it shortly after the start like he said they have at times in the past.
“Everybody hopes to win for the team and the school on homecoming,” Bunfill said.
Lampley and Bunfill agree this game is very important because it would mean their first win of the season end their three game losing streak.
“We will try to get a victory on Friday night,” Lampley said.
