In his third year starting for Maple Grove, quarterback Brad Davison is as groomed of a play caller as the turf he’s playing on.
His fellow seniors haven’t had nearly the same exposure on the varsity field with just two returning starters on defense and just two players other than Davison who saw significant time on offense.
“It’s kind of been a journey through these first few weeks, but I think we’ve started to catch our groove a bit,” Maple Grove coach Matt Lombardi said.
The Crimson seemed to be in full swing Friday night as Davison had a hand in four first-half touchdowns that catapulted them to 45-14 victory over the Minnetonka on Friday night at Minnetonka High School.
“I have four really good receivers — outside and in the slot — and Minnetonka played man the whole game so we tried to take advantage of that,” Davison said.
