Coming off of a 29-8 victory over Tuba City last week, the Sand Devils football team continues their campaign Saturday afternoon as they travel to Flagstaff to take on the Gophers of Florence.
After being able to run the ball for nearly 300 yards last week, Coach Jeff Wheatly says the game plan is to try and continue the trend of running the ball well by pounding Florence in between the hash marks. Even though two of Page’s top backs from last week, Peter Corbell and Clalin Collins are banged up, Coach Wheatly believes the Sand Devils will have an opportunity to run the ball on the Gophers based on what he’s seen in film study this week.
On the defensive side of the ball, Page will see a more aerial based attack from Florence.
The Sand Devils will be making their first trip to the Walkup Skydome in 3 years and Coach Wheatly says his boys are excited for the opportunity.
The Sand Devils take on Florence at 2pm on tomorrow on the campus of Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff.
