Prague quarterback Dakota Harris isn’t shy about what he thinks his team can be this year.

For evidence, he points to last Friday’s scrimmage at Bristow. In 12 offensive plays, the Red Devils threw 11 times. Of those 11 passes, he completed nine of them. And the two incomplete passes were drops, Harris said. And the defense looked solid, he said.

The only thing Harris thinks Prague needs is a little experience for the young guys on the team.

“The younger guys on our team have to be able to step up and go in,” Harris said. “They’re one play away from going in on the varsity team.”

The numbers could be Prague’s Achilles’ heel, because they only have about 30 players on the team, which isn’t much when compared to the other teams they play. But that didn’t stop the team from making a surprising run to the Class 2A semifinals last year. If the Red Devils stay healthy, watch out.
