He'll put aside personal glory for the good of the team because he said he simply wants to play — any position will do.
Paired with Ricky Reeves, the duo was solid for the Bombers last year. Davis learned he could use what he knows about the quarterback position and put it to good use in the secondary.
“I had to learn the position last year, but I used my experience to help me,” Davis said. “I knew what the quarterbacks were thinking, and I could bait them to set up plays for myself.”
With only last year to fall back on, Davis wasn't sure how heavy the interest was going to be on the recruiting trail. He's doing alright.
Davis said the first team to contact him was Arizona in the offseason and that changed his perspective heading into this year.
It's no longer about teammates and coaches saying he has the potential to play at the next level; now it's being confirmed by big-time universities.
“I can't stop working hard now. I have too much to gain,” Davis said. “We have the potential for a real special year. This is our senior season, and we want to represent the Bombers.”
