BELLEVILLE - Overcoming adversity can define a football team. Belleville-Albany senior Nick Davis and coach Barry Lengfeld certainly fit the definition Friday night.Davis rushed for 347 yards on 39 carries and scored three touchdowns while battling the flu to lead the Wildcats to a 21-14 win over Columbus."As a kid I used to think about rushing for 300 yards in a game when I got older," said Davis, who celebrated with teammates after the game with his knee wrapped after leaving the game as a precautionary measure. "My line made it happen. They were making holes as wide as the field."
