Jeremy Szura, Steel Spies and Durango went back to basics this week in an attempt to shore up the miscues that allowed Cheyenne Mountain to roll to victory in Week 1. “Make sure we get all the handoffs right and get all the screens,” quarterback Alex Lavenue said. “If we do all the little things and the easy plays right, we could have a good game.”

Durango head coach Greg Wyatt said getting back to basics in terms of tackling should help the Demons improve in an area that hurt them in the season’s first game. “It’s been 100-percent focus. We spent a lot of time on tackling, taking it all the way back to the very basics,” he said.

Quarterback Jeremy Szura’s status for Friday night’s home opener against Kirtland Central remains up in the air. If he’s unable to go, sophomore Alex Lavenue is expected to start in his stead.
