Third Season Could Be The Charm for Davis

NORMAL, Ill. – Since an injury has sidelined him before, Davis knows how to quarterback the situation this time around.
“I had the same injury on the same knee at Memphis,” said Davis. “It’s kind of been a night and day recovery actually. Mostly due to the fact that I was young and didn’t really grind like I do now the first time.”
After suffering his second knee injury last November, Davis has been working with Trainer Andrew Brubaker to help him fully recover.
The process personally pushed him to build his confidence and be more aggressive in what he does.
“The recovery process has been a really smooth one overall,” said Davis, “Things have came back easily and naturally and I’ve been able to progress really well following protocol.”
Davids now knows what to expect and is determined to get back on the field.
Even though spring practices were canceled due to the covid-19 pandemic, Davis continues to stay active.
He goes running, jumping, and doing quarterback drills in a park. He’s also lifting weights in his garage to build up his strength.
“I feel as if I’m running faster than ever straight ahead,” said Davis.
If the season resumes this fall, Davis is prepared to make his third season under center one to remember.
He looks forward to getting back in the huddle with his teammates and watching them have breakout performances.
He said that Redbird football has the potential to have one of their stronger seasons in 2020 given the depth and potential of the team, offense in particular.
“I look forward to showing everyone what we really are,” said Davis. “We are an explosive offense that has a number of home run hitting weapons so I can’t wait to go out and score a lot of points which I know we will.”
Davis and the Redbirds hope to open the 2020 season in Champaign against the University of Illinois.
