All-State football: Broken Arrow's Frankie Davis played senior season for his mother

OKLAHOMAN ALL-STATE DEFENSIVE END — Broken Arrow defensive end Frankie Davis wanted to remain closer to home and his mom. But he waited too long to commit to Tulsa only to find his scholarship offer was no longer there, pushing him to verbally commit to New Mexico.

It also bothers him that he will play college football more than 600 miles away from her.

“She was a little shocked,” he said. “She didn't know until about two days after. She was pretty excited. But it's just the way it is.”

He lost his offer from Tulsa after Tulsa Union defensive lineman Dalton Rodriguez switched his verbal commitment from Oklahoma to Tulsa.

Now, New Mexico is likely getting a lineman who is still developing.

Davis played sparingly as a junior during Broken Arrow's run to the Class 6A state championship game.

That, though, set him up for a big senior season making game-changing play after game-changing play.

“He was a guy we depended on,” Spavital said. “He was always that. He's a guy that's just stable, consistent and he made plays when we needed them. He was able to make some athletic plays when you needed them, as well.

“He just made those because he was consistent, his motor was on high and he played hard.”
