The Wolves haven't lost a district game since 2008 and come into this season with most of their starters back from last year's 9-2 team.

Davis might have some growing pains early in the season as Wolves coach Jody Weber is trying to develop enough depth to keep his players almost exclusively on one side of the ball.

“We have the kids to do it,” Weber said. “(We) just need some kids to step up.”

HETHERINGTON STEPPING IN AT QB

After having Cole Weber run Davis' wishbone offense for the past few years, the Wolves will have a new quarterback.

Senior Alex Hetherington, who has started at free safety for Davis recently, will move to the quarterback spot. Jody Weber expects big things from the 5-foot-10, 190-pound Hetherington.
