Davidson wins Next Level High School Football Skills Competition

Davidson, coming-off a 3-7-1 season in 2014, is hoping that winning Thursday’s Next Level High School Football Skills Challenge will be a springboard for 2015.

Davidson was one of 14 teams from Alabama, Florida and Mississippi that competed in the competition in South Alabama that included a 7-on-7 tournament, tug-o-war, bench press, punting and kicking, tire pull, truck push and an obstacle course.

The Warriors finished in 1st place with 160 points, followed by Alma Bryant in second with 115 points and Baker High finished in third with 80 points.  All three of those teams are in Alabama’s 7A Region 1.

In the 7 on 7 tournament, Baker beat Davidson 13-7 in the championship game.  Baker, which is coming-off a 9-2 season, went 6-0 during the 7 on 7 part of the event.  It was the second straight year.
