Davenport coach John Greenfield speaks highly of the Bulldogs' defense line entering this season.

Davenport is moving from the 3-2 formation to the 3-1, while returning junior Gary Schoefield and sophomore Tristen Wilbanks up front.


“Really it worked out pretty good,” Greenfield said. “We had a little trouble in the back end in the first scrimmage, but the other night against Allen we did really well. We really played hard and aggressive.”

Move-in Ethan Smith is also expected to start on the defensive line.

But the offensive line is just as experienced with senior center Jonathon Acord returning alongside senior Alex Rosado. Junior Braeden Wunderlich also returns at left guard.

The Bulldogs went 9-3 last season, one year after finishing as the Class B state runner-up, and are hoping their youth can carry the load this season.

Among the young cast is freshman Cade Harleso, who will start at tight end and safety.

“We're young, but the kids are having a lot more confidence in (the new defense) and being more aggressive,” Greenfield said. “Right not it's working pretty well for us.”
