    Why didn’t the information regarding Coach Davis mention “he previously served as Dudley’s defensive coordinator” prior to becoming head coach? As defensive coordinator, he assisted in Dudley winning conference championships & reaching state finals.

    It’s Page’s world, and everyone lives in it. I’ve never seen a school where rules are bent by the county to allow athletes to come. This is Page I am talking about.
