1985 Football Team

A Winning Tradition
“A great life experience.” — John McCleary

For the football players, fans and parents the 1985 season will be long remembered. It did not matter if the team won or lost, they had nothing of which to be ashamed.

Ten weeks before the season started the players began to get in shape. From the hot summer sun to the cool autumn months, the team worked. It was intense physical training which continued into the season six days week.

This season Davis dominated its opponents right from the start. Most of the life games ended with an easy victory for Davis. It was ironic and unfortunate that Weber was our opponent for the beginning and ending of the season. But, as one player stated, “we learned to deal with defeat.”

The coaches felt that all of the players were exceptional an d that everyone made important contributions. Seven of the team members were chosen to 1985 Lakeside Review All-Area football team.

Even if the team didn’t take state, it cannot be forgotten that they were first in region and second in state. They worked hard and accomplished their goals as a team.

Through it all there remained the loyal support of the community . Parents, friends and football fans alike crowded the stands each Friday night. The cheers pushed the team on and their accomplishments rallied the crowd even more. As the old saying goes, “It’s not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game.” In this sense, our football team emerged from the 1985 season victorious.

Davis High 1986…
Never let it end.
-D Book Theme

Dear Editors,

Memories. You have created many of them this year, memories that will remind you of the frustrations of trying to get large groups of people to cooperate. Other memories that will help, recall the satisfaction we all enjoyed when we succeeded. My memories of you and your staff will always be memories of gratitude and satisfaction. Grattitude to you for taking a naive D-Book advisor who knew nothing of what it takes to produce a quality yearbook and carried him through the year to help you enjoy the satisfaction of producing a quality book for a quality school and studenbody. Memories. We all share them. Never let it end.
