Devitt scores eight touchdowns in Falcons’ 63-13 victory

O-A/BC-IG senior running back Chase Devitt rushed for 337 yards and scored eight touchdowns in the Falcons’ 63-13 season ending win over Treynor in Ida Grove Friday.

Both the rushing and touchdown totals are new O-A/BC-IG school records. The eight touchdowns in a game also ties Devitt for third place for most touchdowns in an 11-player game in Iowa high school football history. Devitt had touchdown runs of five, 21, five, 54, one, 76, five and 33 yards.

“It was one of those deals where we had success running the ball and the kids sensed the fact Treynor could not stop us and when that happened our kids got after it a little more. It is demoralizing for the other team when they know you are going to run the ball and they can’t stop it,” noted Falcon coach Larry Allen.
