Davenport coach John Greenfield has noticed a little more enthusiasm among his players than in the past, and he thinks it’s because of the team’s high expectations for itself.
“The coaches mentioned it to me after the first day, that things were just a little more positive than in the past,” Greenfield said. “It’s really the best time we’ve had in two-a-days in several years.”
The Bulldogs return all eight starters on both offense and defense.
“They think they’re gonna go deep into the playoffs,” Greenfield said. “They’re very excited and confident.”
Last season, Davenport lost in the second round to Wetumka. Running back Mike Miller, who rushed for 2,103 yards and 33 touchdowns as a junior in 2010, was lost at halftime of that game to an injury.
“As long as we can stay healthy, we’ve got a good chance,” Greenfield said.
