Speed, speed and more speed. That is exactly what the Buffs bring back for 2018. The once-again defending Class 5A boys track and field team state champions have big pieces coming back that flew on the track in the spring. The Buffs will have to replace dynamic quarterback Jabari James, but bring back more than 2,500 yards of rushing out of the backfield in Jerry Davis and Devon Achane.
The duo combined for 38 touchdowns and 11, 100-plus yard rushing performances. Achane can also run some routes as well as he returns as one of the top targets at wideout. Dominick Houston-Shepard, who is expected to have a big year, will join him. Also a wide receiver to watch will be Korey King. There is a ton of offensive firepower coming back for the Buffs. Since the program started in 2004, Fort Bend Marshall never had back-to-back 10-win seasons until doing it in 2016 and 2017. The Buffs are in line for another one, and a deep playoff run, in 2018.
