Jeff Davis had a nose for the football this past season, tallying 97 tackles with six of those for a loss. The leading tackler for the Vikings caused havoc out there on the field with two sacks, while also showing good field awareness in recovering three fumbles.
His best game of the season came on the biggest stage, where his squad lost to Westlake in the quarterfinals in the final seconds. The senior played great and finished the game off with 11 tackles, 2.5 for loss, and two sacks.
The 5’11”, 215-pound senior was primarily used this past season at MLB for the stingy Vikings defense, but he also served as a nickelback at times due to his elite 4.6 speed. He also showed off his versatility and was a lead blocking fullback for the high-powered offense that set many school records. That ability to play both ways gives the senior flexibility as we wind down toward national signing day. Davis should be considered an “athlete” for the 2017 graduating class.
The first-team all-region linebacker not only has a nose for the football but also for the books. He sports an impressive 3.98 GPA. Since he has done so well in the classroom, Davis has earned academic scholarship offers to Georgia Southern, Mercer and Kennesaw State, and he has visited each university. He has also recently visited UCF, Florida, The Citadel and Savannah State. In addition to the academic scholarships, he has received football scholarship offers from St. Augustine’s University and Albany State.
Davis has all the qualities of a student-athlete, and if a college decides to offer, they will not only be getting a tremendous player but also a high-character young man. Interested in recruiting Jeff Davis? Click HERE to visit his HUDL page.
