JV and Varsity Football Games at Pickens Postponed

(10/12/2020 / TRHS Webmaster)

District leadership, including the GCS Director of Medical Health Services, met with school administration today and have decided that this week’s JV and varsity football games versus Pickens have been postponed until a future date after four Devildog football players tested positive for COVID dating back to Tuesday, October 6. Football practice will resume Tuesday, October 13, for symptom-free students and students who are not quarantined. Football training will be structured like the preseason sessions where small groups of athletes will train with a coach and be at least six feet socially distant while wearing masks during training sessions.

Parents, students should not attend class or school functions if they are experiencing a new or worsening cough, loss of taste or smell, or shortness of breath. Students should also remain at home if they have been in close contact with an individual known to have COVID.

Devildogs Fall 13-12 to the Rams

(10/3/2020 / TRHS Webmaster)

Devildogs

The Devildogs traveled to Westside to take on the Rams in their first Region 1 AAAA contest. In a game where the defenses kept scoring to a minimum, the Devildogs came up just short losing 13-12 in the first game ever between the two teams. Travelers Rest received the opening kickoff and started at the 20. Westside's defense came up with their first big play forcing and recovering a fumble in the opening minute. The Devildog defense held the Rams to a 32 yard field goal and Westside led 3-0. Later in the first quarter the Devildogs missed a 32 yard field goal. Both teams moved the ball but the defenses came up big in the red zone with both teams turning the ball over on downs. Riley Gilbert intercepted a pass giving the Devildogs the ball inside the Westside 10 late in the second half. Caleb Mills would score the first touchdown of the night on a one yard run. The extra point was no good and the Devildogs led 6-3 with 2:02 left in the half. Westside moved down the field but a Cameron Campbell interception stopped the drive in the final seconds of the half and for the second week in a row the Devildogs had a 6-3 lead at halftime.

The Rams started the second half on offense but the Devildog defense forced a failed field goal attempt from 29 yards out. The Rams defense forced a punt on the next possession, the first of the night, and took over on the Devildog side of the field. They tied the game on a 43 yard field goal with 2:41 left in the 3rd quarter. The game remained tied at 6 entering the final quarter.

Westside picked off a pass to start the 4th quarter and took over at the Devildog 39 yard line. Bryson Aiken picked off a Westside pass to end the drive at the four yard line. Travelers Rest had to punt again and Westside took over on their own 41 yard line. The Devildog defense forced a fumble near the goal line but Westside recovered it in the end zone for a touchdown. After kicking the extra point the Rams led 13-6 with 9:16 left in the game. The Devildogs answered as Cam Henderson completed a 48 yard TD pass to Drayton Ward with 7:46 left in the game. The Devildogs attempted a 2 point conversion but Henderson was stopped short of the goal line and Westside held a 13-12 lead.

Westside was able to take a lot of time off of the clock with their running game. A missed field goal gave the Devildogs one last chance with 1:07 left in the game. Westside stopped the Devildogs on a fourth down play and took over with 22 seconds left in the game and preserve the 13-12 win.

Statistically the game was as close as the score with each team having a little more than 270 yards total offense. Westside outrushed the Devildogs 256 to 78. Cam Henderson led the Devildogs with 86 rushing yards. The Devildogs had a 195 to 21 advantage in passing yards with six different receivers having catches for the Devildogs. Caleb Mills was 15 out of 26 for 130 yards. Cam Henderson was 3 out of 5 for 65 yards with one TD and one interception. Westside had a decided advantage in time of possession holding the ball for 36 minutes compared to 12 minutes for Travelers Rest.

The Devildogs will host Walhalla in a Region 1 game next week at Chico Bolin Stadium. Please see the TRHS website or Facebook page for information on ticket availability.
