Summary: The Red Devils are loaded with seniors this year, including their star from the past three seasons Randall Jones. After playing most of his Rustburg career at quarterback, Jones will start his senior year at running back. Junior Anthony Lovelace has the inside track to the quarterback position. First-year Head Coach Jack Baker, who comes to Rustburg after coaching Alleghany the past 10 seasons, says the Red Devils are working hard at throwing the ball to complement a strong running attack. Lovelace needs to get a solid start at quarterback so Rustburg will be comfortable leaving Jones at running back. Baker says with continued consistency and improvement each day, the Red Devils can be a strong football team and get over the playoff hump and into the postseason.
