PEORIA, Ill. -- Give the Quincy High School football team enough time and eventually the Blue Devils will wear you down.

It happened Friday night at Peoria Stadium.

Leading Peoria Manual 13-6 at halftime, Quincy showcased a physical, powerful offense in the second half of a 34-12 victory. The end result was 316 yards rushing on 61 carries and a 3-1 record heading into a pivotal Western Big Six Conference game against Rock Island Alleman.

"We felt the strength of our team is depth, and that's something we're very proud of," QHS coach Rick Little said. "I'm very pleased with our approach and overall toughness through four quarters.

"That's something that kind of defines our football program right now. You might beat us for a quarter, maybe two, but to hang with us for four quarters is more and more of a challenge."

Two weeks ago, the toughness and physicality of the Blue Devils (3-1, 1-0 WB6) was questioned following a 49-16 loss to Peoria Notre Dame. So the QHS coaching staff put in the extra work to make the Blue Devils understand how to play physical.

"The kids know our blueprint for success," Little said. "We believe the game is won by being physical."

For the second week in a row, that meant a heavy dose of fullback Bryce Unmisig running behind an aggressive offensive line.

Unmisig, a senior, capped Quincy's game-opening 61-yard with a 9-yard touchdown run. It was the first of four touchdowns runs, three of which were inside the 10-yard line, as he battered the Rams between the tackles. He also had a 23-yard scoring run.

Unmisig finished with 173 yards on 30 carries, while Brady Brockmiller had 96 yards and a 20-yard scoring jaunt.

"As a coach, you have to be very proud of (Unmisig) for accepting that responsibility to carry the ball so much," Little said. "In our offense, some defenses will take that away. If they do, we have several backs who can really go in there and provide a lift.

"Bryce has done that for us the last two weeks."

That doesn't mean the Blue Devils will shy away from doing other things. Senior quarterback George Crickard IV completed 4 of 8 passes for 27 yards, keeping the Manual defense honest.

"People think physical means just running the ball, but we have the talent to do other things," Little said. "We feel when the opportunities are there we have the trigger man in George (Crickard IV) to get that done, and we have guys who can be athletic as well."

Physical and athletic is how the Blue Devils like their defense to be characterized, too.

Manual (1-3) managed 303 yards of total offense, but quarterback Marcus Sierra was intercepted twice.

"We're starting to become more and more physical," Little said.
