That loss moved the team, led by sophomore quarterback Jake Thompson, to a 2-3 record. Obviously, things have changed.
The team won its final four regular season games, and the class of 2011 quarterback has his Cardinals rolling through the MHSAA playoffs. They passed their biggest test yet Saturday night, defeating MSU bound QB Andrew Maxwell and the Midland Chemics in their own house.
Thompson, a dual-threat weapon, threw a tight, perfectly placed spiral for Davison's opening touchdown and found his way to pay-dirt with his legs as well.
Scrambling out of pressure, throwing on the run and dodging heat-seeking defenders while on a QB keeper were just a few ways Thompson danced around the field, leading Davison to victory.
