Davis Gridiron Kings MVP

ORLANDO, Fla -- Matt Davis took home Most Valuable Player honors after leading the Southwest to the title at the Champion Gridiron Kings, an event that collected talent from all over the country to represent their respective regions in seven-on-seven competition.

Scout.com five-star quarterback Matt Davis walked on to the field at Wide World of Sports at Disney World as one of the highest ranked players at the event, and with that pressure on his shoulders he stepped up to lead the team from the Southwest to a championship.

The first two years the Southeast rolled through the tournament, but got upset by the Midwest in the semifinals to set up match that would crown a champion from a new region for the first time.

The 29-13 score would not indicate it, but Davis and his Southwest teammates basically coasted through the title game, in large part because of his play, but the 6-foot-1, 205-pounder was quick to put the praise back on his teammates.

"It was great you know, like I said I did not win this these receivers did and these running backs did. Those guys right there they just make plays and it is easy to throw the ball to playmakers."

"You can throw the ball to Trey (Williams) on a five-yard flat route or Corey Coleman and they can take it 80 yards in the blink of an eye. It was just great!"

Davis, a Texas A&M commit, got the chance to play with a number of his future Aggie teammates and was thankful to get the chance to bond with them throughout the weekend of festivities.

Davis also built up a rapport with a couple of Texas Longhorn commits that he will be rivals with in college, but being the future Aggie that he is he still was working the other commits to get him to join him in College Station.

"Cayleb (Jones) and Thomas (Johnson) both know about Aggieland and we are trying to come and get them," Davis said before fellow Scout.com five-star Cayleb Jones added, "He knows about Austin too!"

I told him I don't care if he wants to come I am going to put him in my suitcase and bring him anyway," Davis concluded.
