Devildogs Tame the Tigers
(9/13/2018 / TRHS Webmaster)
The Devildogs wasted little time on Thursday night scoring in the first 63 seconds of the game. Jake Hall pulled in a pass from Wilson Hendricks and the Devildogs led 7-0. The defense got their chance to score with Ty Gary sacking the Tiger QB in the end zone for a safety with about three minutes left in the first quarter. Hendricks passed to Esaias Tucker for his second TD pass of the night and the Devildogs led 16-0.
Blue Ridge took advantage of Devildog penalties in the second quarter. A pass interference penalty gave the Tigers a first down on a 4th down play and they scored soon after and cut the lead to 16-7. Deonte Byrd plowed through the middle of the line for a 3 yard touchdown run on the next Devildog series and the Devildogs led 23-7. Hendricks threw another pair of touchdown passes in the quarter with Hall getting his second TD of the night and Derrick Fields making a nice catch over the top of Tiger defenders in the closing seconds of the half. The Devildogs led 37-0 at halftime.
The Devildogs extended their lead to 44-7 in the third quarter as Corbin Baker ran for a score. Blue Ridge picked up their second touchdown with a little less than five minutes left in the third quarter and missed the extra point. Neither team scored in the final quarter and the Devildogs improved to 5-0 with the 44-13 win. They will have next week off before returning home to open region play against Eastside on September 28th. Homecoming ceremonies will take place before the game.

Devildogs Are 4-0!
(9/7/2018 / TRHS Webmaster)
For the first time since 1967 the Devildog football team has won their first four games of the season. The Pickens Blue Flame gave the Devildogs their toughest test of the season but Deonte Byrd's touchdown with just under five minutes left in the game gave the Devildogs the 20-19 lead. The defense held and the Devildogs managed to stay perfect after four games.
After outscoring their opponents 147-14 in the first three games the Devildogs expected a tougher game on the road at Pickens despite their 1-2 record. The Blue Flame defense stopped Travelers Rest on the first series and drove down the field but were forced to punt themselves. On their second offensive series Wilson Hendricks passed to Derrick Fields on the first play for an 82 yard TD pass. The Devildogs led 7-0 and the score remained the same going into the second quarter. Pickens put together a long drive wearing down the Devildog defense and scored to tie the game. After the kickoff Pickens was called for targeting and the Devildogs were across midfield. A Blue Flame defender picked off a pass and their QB threw his first pass for a 24 yard touchdown on the next play. Pickens took a 13-7 lead. The Devildogs put together a drive but came up just short on a fourth and six play giving Pickens the ball on the 19. They ran the clock down and were able to stop Fields on a punt return on the final play of the half.
In the second half, Hendricks scored on a 42 yard QB keeper and the Devildogs regained the lead 14-13. Pickens scored on a 68 yard pass in the final quarter and led 19-14. Byrd picked up his first score of the night and the Devildogs held on for the huge 20-19 win.
The Devildogs will try to stay perfect next week as they host rival Blue Ridge in a non-region game. They will travel to Blue Ridge later in the season as well for a region game. We hope that everyone will come out and support the Devildogs next Friday night.
