Durham High School went undefeated in the Sacramento Valley League and finished 11-2 overall last season. Leading a junior heavy squad this year, Jace Buck looks to pick up where he left off. Buck's eight interceptions as a defensive back makes the fact that he's also the starting quarterback, all that more impressive.
Durham has around 300 students enrolled. You might think the Trojans would be at a disadvantage compared to bigger schools... but not to Head Coach Brev Creech and his players.

Creech says, “It's the attitude that we need to establish, but also having the ability to run our plays versus any defense that shows up in front of us. Being able to get a body on a body and being able to block the guys that we need to block. For us that's going to be the most important thing.
Buck also doesn’t buy the lack of numbers translating onto the field. “We don't lack in talent, like, our seniors will pick it up this year and they'll play a big role and so will our juniors so I think we'll be a pretty solid team, and we're expected to go pretty far in playoffs.”

Despite earning the number one seed in last year's playoffs, the Trojans have now lost three straight finals to East Nicolaus. Four times a charm will have to be the motto this year. Durham kicks off their year with a scrimmage tomorrow against Gridley. Small school or not, Durham will be looking forward to the challenge starting on Friday.
