Summary: Springfield has 78 kids out for the football program and that number includes Darnell Thomas, a transfer from Scott HS. He appears to be the designated starting QB. The Blue Devils are inexperienced but leaders are stepping up in the preseason. They’ll hold three scrimmages because of that inexperience. As usual they have elite speed across the board, notably Devin Johnson. A lot of the players have been working in the weight room since Dec. 8th of 2018.
