DAVIS, OK --- Competition continues to thicken as teams continue to thin out. It's round three time in the Oklahoma playoffs and for the Davis Wolves, it took a lot of grit to get there.
They'd trail 22-8 at half against Millwood, looking like their season would end on their home field at the hand of the fifth best team in the class.
Many teams would roll over and lose, but not these Wolves, they turned it on the second, reeling off 42 unanswered to pick up the W and advance to the 2-A quarterfinals.
How'd they do it? Well to quote the timeless lyrics of Billy Joel, heading into the second half Coach Jody Weber in the boys were keeping the faith.
"Well it was a huge comeback. I think that we said at halftime that there's not a lot of people in that stadium or listening at home that thought we might have a chance to come back. But the most important thing is that our kids did. And our conditioning is tremendous and we were able to wear them down. And we just believed. There were no miracle speeches, there were no great changes. We made a few small adjustments and our kids executed. And its just a testament to the will of our football team," Coach Weber said.
"We talk all the time about adversity, and we were like, were gonna have some. We did. And I'm just glad we rallied together as a team and fought back the way we did," Senior running back/corner back Deaundre Carr said.
The Wolves travel to Adair for the third round this Friday night.
