Desert Speed School athlete and CDO two-way star Gavin Davis was eagerly anticipating last week’s matchup against the Dorado’s latest rival and Davis’ former school, Pusch Ridge. From the Arizona Daily Star:
Friday’s rivalry game between CDO and Pusch Ridge Christian means a little more to Davis. He attended Pusch Ridge for two years and was part of the Lions team that appeared in the 2017 Class 3A state championship game.
“It’s definitely exciting because I’m still friends with some of the guys over there, so it’s going to be fun to play against them for sure,” Davis said. “I think there’s gonna be good competition and there’s a good rivalry growing since there’s about 30 seconds of drive time between the two schools.”
CDO eventually came away with the win, blanking Pusch 21-0 in a game that was closer than the score would otherwise indicate.The Dorados leaned heavily on Davis, who ran for 138 yards and a touchdown. The rivalry win puts CDO at 4-0 on the season. Full game recap…
