Devildogs Open with Win Over Eagles
(9/25/2020 / TRHS Webmaster)
The Devildog varsity football team hosted fifth ranked Eastside on Friday night to open this delayed season. With realignment this was a non-region contest. The past two years the teams combined for nearly 200 points. This year the defenses took control early and saw the score tied 0-0 at the end of the first quarter. Travelers Rest scored quickly in the second quarter on a 14 yard TD run by Cam Henderson and led 6-0 after the extra point attempt was blocked. They had a chance to score again but fumbled inside the five yard line with 8 minutes left in the first half to end the drive. Eastside moved down the field at the end of the half but the Devildog defense held them to a 35 yard field goal as the half ended to take a 6-3 lead into halftime.
Caleb Mills completed a 12 yard touchdown pass to Dillon King late in the third quarter to give the Devildogs a 12-3 lead after a failed two point attempt. Two plays into the final quarter Mills hit a wide open Christian Nielsen in the end zone to give the Devildogs a 19-3 lead after the extra point. The Devildog defense continued to control the Eagle offense and late in the fourth quarter the Devildogs put together a drive which ended in a 30 yard touchdown pass from Mills to Jonquez Webb on a 4th and 5 play to seal the 25-3 win.
Before the game the senior fall sports athletes were recognized. The Devildogs will travel to Westside next Friday for their first Region 1 AAAA game. Please see the information that will be posted later this week on the TRHS website for important information if you plan to attend the game.

This information concerns the Football game this Friday night at Chico Bolin Stadium. First of all, I would like to thank everyone for supporting Devildog Athletics. I know everyone is eager to be able to watch our football team take the field. We have a very limited capacity in our stadium on the home and away side.
Due to that limited capacity, we have a timeline for selling tickets that prioritizes the parents of participants first. Beginning Sunday and ending Monday we are selling up to 2 tickets to our parents. Once those have sold we will then offer tickets to our students. Sale of tickets to the “general public” will not be until Thursday of the week of the game. [Update: tickets are sold out for the game.]
General public sales of tickets will be through GoFan.co. This is a website as well as a mobile app. Please make sure you download this app if you have an iPhone. You can also use the website from your phone. When it comes to JV and D-Team games, tickets will also be sold through GoFan. There are also some items I want to make sure all Devildog Fans are aware of.
