Davis Conquers Many Positions
John Davis Ht: 6-0 Wt: 197 40: 4.53 Position: RB, LB Year: Class of 2012 High School: American Christian Academy (Tuscaloosa, AL) You have played a couple of different positions in your career, correct? "It been a crazy road from ninth grade up until now. It's been one position to another every year: from linebacker, to corner, to safety, to running back, to receiver, I've played everything." Where do you feel the most comfortable? "I am earned my spot as the starting running back last year, and I am pretty comfortable there. That is where I am going to start this year." How has playing all of those positions helped you as a player? "I think it helps me to be a more versatile player. Whatever my team needs, I can be that for them." Do you know what that means to your team? "It to the point where I sacrifice. It's where ever my team needs help the most. I will do anything to help my team." How would you describe your style as a running back? "I am versatile, I am quick. Last year the guy that played in front of me was a power runner. That was an entire different ballgame. It's two different types of games. I am very quick and shifty." What are you trying to improve upon this summer, and beyond? "I am still working on getting bigger. I am also trying to study the game more, and know it better." What schools are showing interest? "Let's see, South Alabama, Georgia, Troy, West Alabama, Mississippi State, Jacksonville State, Colgate, Boston College and the Naval Academy. "It's been a huge blessing and honor to have these guys looking at me."
