Tim “Big Play” McDowney rushed seven times for 98 yards. Shamar Shanks rushed for 75 yards on nine carries and a touchdown. Sidney Horton added a touchdown, while rushing for 17 yards on two carries.
The Red Devils’ no-huddle offensive finished the game with a total of 112 yards on 25 yards. Red Devil quarterback, Lee Kedrick, led his team in the statistic department, with eight completions on 21 attempts, for 298 yards, and one interception. On the ground, Red Devil running back, TreVaughn Davis rushed for 77 yards on 11 carries, and one touchdown.
