CHEYENNE — Coming off a 40-10 loss at home to Kelly Walsh on Oct. 11, the road won’t get any easier for the EHS Red Devils.

Today, they travel to Cheyenne to take on the 6-1 East Thunderbirds for the penultimate game of the regular season.

The Red Devils stand at 2-5 on the year with their last win coming on Sept. 20 against the Laramie Plainsmen.

The T-Birds only loss also came on Sept. 20 to the Sheridan Broncs. Since that loss, the Thunderbirds have been on a mission, defeating Kelly Walsh, Cheyenne-Central and, most recently, Laramie on a path to maintain a top spot in the upcoming playoffs.

“They’re a good football team,” EHS head coach Pat Fackrell said. “They’re big. They’ve got a good quarterback. Everything runs through him. Defensively, they bring a lot of pressure. They’re a good club year in and year out.”

That quarterback Fackrell referenced is Tevis Bartlett. Bartlett ranks fourth in 4A in both passing and rushing yards. Bartlett has thrown for exactly 1,000 yards.

He’s first in touchdown passes with 13 but has also thrown twice as many picks (12) as the next 4A quarterback.

On the ground, he’s picked up 680 yards with a 5.7 yard-per-carry average and has found the end zone more than any other rusher in the conference with 11 touchdowns.

Bartlett’s favorite target thus far has been Cameron Johnson, who has hauled in 26 passes for 404 yards and eight touchdowns.

For the Red Devils, the best news for them might be that last week’s injuries won’t affect the lineup going into this week.

EHS lost Kaleb Earley in the first quarter after taking a hit on a kickoff return. Later in the first quarter, Kyler Wagstaff left the game with a calf injury. Neither returned for the remainder of the game.

Both will be back in action tonight, however, at East. Having two seniors back will be huge for a team that relies on both players for offensive, defensive and special teams production.
