Despite taking Jefferson quarterback Stephen Garcia to the ground several times Friday night, Armwood senior defensive lineman Torrey Davis was the one physically ailing Saturday.

Davis, a University of Florida commitment who entered the nationally televised game with a nagging shoulder injury, said he plans to have it X-rayed Monday.

Moments after the top-ranked Hawks' 13-6 triumph, Davis said he feared he broke his collarbone on the right side. However, coach Sean Callahan said Saturday he doesn't think the injury is that severe.

"I don't know if it's (a broken collarbone), but we're going to get it checked," Callahan said.

Aside from exiting in the first half to get his right shoulder wrapped, Davis played the whole game Friday and was in on many of the Hawks' 10 sacks and 15 tackles for loss.

But a collision with Garcia aggravated an injury Davis said he initially suffered two weeks ago at Durant.

"It was shoulder to shoulder with Garcia," Davis said Saturday afternoon. "I hit him pretty good, and I like, aggravated it. It's just a pain I've never felt before.

"On another play I hit Garcia again, and it just went to acting up again, but it was all right."

Fortunately for Davis, he has two weeks to rest the ailment. Armwood (4-0), ranked first in the state's Class 4A poll, is idle until a Sept. 29 game at Winter Haven.
