Jesuit Football takes on Davis

The Jesuit High School Varsity Football team will take on Davis High School for the Marauders’ fifth game of the season, and second league game, on Saturday at 2:00P.M. The Marauders will be fighting to improve upon their .500 record.

Jesuit previously lost to Pleasant Grove High School 48-9, dropping their record to 2-2. With Davis visiting the Hanson McClain Advisors Stadium, the Marauders have a chance to rise above their current record.

The team is determined to beat Davis in order to improve their league record, and better their chances for a playoff spot.

“We need this victory and [it’s] our second game of league, so we need that good start,” Jesuit Quarterback Calvin Brownholtz ‘17 said. “We need to play focused and disciplined… like we practice.”

Davis’s upbeat intensity in this game will be a factor the Marauders will have to rise above on offense, defense, and special teams.

“Davis plays fast and physical on both sides of the ball. We have to beat their intensity on every snap,” said Jesuit defensive coordinator Jonathan Isaac.

Jesuit knows that if they are knowledgeable of their alignments and assignments, they will have a better chance at winning.

“We are making sure that we know our plays and our assignments. Our team has the talent to do it, we just have to achieve that goal. Davis is not a bad team, we cannot take them for granted,” said Jesuit kick returner and running back Jake Vassar ‘17.

This game will determine whether the Marauders will have a losing or winning record going into the future. It is a game the Marauders need to use to get back on the right path, and sneak back into the Sacramento Bee ‘Top 20’ rankings.
