High school football: Davenport continuing gradual improvement as playoffs progress
Davenport coach John Greenfield is happy because his team is playing its best football in the playoffs.
Greenfield called the Bulldogs' 46-6 win against Weleetka on Friday in the second round of the Class B playoffs their best performance of the season. The Outlaws only score came on a kick return. Davenport fell 32-28 against Weleetka in Week 1.
The Bulldogs (10-2) are also aided with key players returning from injuries, including senior Cal Harelson.
"We've made some adjustments in our secondary and our line," Greenfield said. "Our quarterback is playing real well."
Davenport has allowed only 12 points in its past seven games.
With a win against Pioneer (9-3) on Friday, Davenport would advance to the state semifinals for a sixth straight season. But first, Greenfield said his team is focused on stopping the Mustangs' strong rushing attack.
