After telling his football teammates that he wouldn't be able to play, his phone started lighting up with texts and calls of support.
But Davis had to turn the phone off.
“Bomber football is such a tradition and I felt like I'd let everyone down,” he said.
Davis especially credits three conversations with helping lift him out of his post-injury funk.
The first was with former Sooner Ryan Broyles, who had missed part of his senior season after a knee injury. Davis and Broyles traded messages on Twitter, with Broyles reassuring Davis that things would eventually be all right.
Another was with Bombers baseball assistant Shane Hawk, who had gone through three shoulder surgeries during his time in professional baseball.
Finally, Davis talked to his youth pastor at First Baptist Church in Midwest City, Jimmie Tribble.
“During the football season, I was really bitter,” Davis said. “And he told me, ‘You wouldn't have impacted as many people as you would have if you hadn't been hurt.'
“That helped me out a lot.”
The Bombers host Choctaw at 4:30 p.m. Monday, and Davis' recruiting is once again picking up as he's proven his health.
“I'm swinging it real well and seeing the ball great,” Davis said. “I couldn't be more blessed.”
