Davies 2021 football season felt like it was over almost before it could really get started.

“Our coach gave us two options there. He said hey we can either drop our heads we’re out of the playoffs or we can go out and win some games," said senior lineman Isaac Kerzman."

The Eagles lost two of their first four games. Both to conference opponents, essentially eliminating them from playoff contention.

“We could have very well been a 2-7 team when we were out of the playoffs," said head coach Wayne Werremeyer. "They said that’s not gonna happen."

The Eagles finished 6-3. It’s that determination down the stretch last season they hope propels them into this season

“It’s just the maturity of our team," Werremeyer said.

This year’s senior class is loaded on the defensive front, where the Eagles boast two NDSU commits, Oliver Lucht and Brennan Palmer.

“Just to be able to come out and play with those guys every single day," Kerzman said. "It’s a dream."

With the big men leading the way, Davies has big aspirations for this year.

“These guys want to get Davies football back out of the quarterfinals," Werremeyer said. "They want to get Davies football back into the semifinals and hopefully have a shot for a ring at the end of the year."

Davies' season opener is August 26 against Mandan.
