South Lakes wide receiver Norris Davis caught two touchdown passes and kicked three extra points to lead the West to a 21-12 victory in the 12th annual Virginia High School Coaches Association all-star football game tonight before a crowd of 5,714 at the University of Virginia. This was the first game under the new permanent lights at Scott Stadium.
This afternoon, Jon Hartness' eighth inning double won for the the East, 6-5, in the eighth annual VHSCA all-star baseball game.
Despite the 95-degree temperature tonight, Davis, a 6-foot-2, 190-pounder headed for North Carolina, used his 4.3 speed to outrace the East defensive backs virtually at will.
"I just freaked them out. They didn't have anyone who could keep up with me," said Davis, who caught four passes for 94 yards and also drew three interference calls.
In the first quarter, D.J. Dozier (Kempsville) rushed for a five-yard East touchdown to open the scoring. The Penn State-bound tailback finished with 102 yards on 17 carries.
But the West struck back immediately as Chantilly quarterback Scott Secules caught Davis streaking down the right sideline for a 68-yard touchdown pass. Davis' kick gave the West a lead it would never relinquish.
Secules, who has signed with Virginia, left the game before halftime with a probable fracture of his fourth metatarsal bone. He was hurt when his shoe caught in the artificial turf as he trotted onto the field.
