Despite growing up in a town where wrestling and basketball are king, VCHS senior Devan Matthews's focus has always been football.
"As a little kid growing up, everything revolved around football," Matthews said. "That's all I wanted to do. I didn't want to play any other sports."
It's an obsession that began in grade school, when Matthews first started watching his older brother, Chris, play for the Vandals.
The opportunity to don a helmet and pads finally presented itself during Matthews' fifth-grade year, when he first suited up for the VYO program.
