COOKEVILLE, Tenn. — Daryl Rollins-Davis
isn't the type that needs the red-carpet treatment or constant attention.
No, the Fulton (Tenn.) High School senior just wants an opportunity to play college football and get a degree.
The 5-foot-9, 175-pounder holds 11 scholarship offers. Rollins-Davis says he'd like to get an offer from Vanderbilt. Also, he finds playing for Tennessee at Neyland Stadium attractive.
Programs like Arkansas State, Furman and Middle Tennessee pulled the trigger. Rollins-Davis says Georgia Southern and Tulsa may be next.
The Knoxville resident took home the 2013 TSSAA Division I Class AA Mr. Football Back of the Year after running 128 times for 1,919 yards and 37 touchdowns. He also caught seven passes for 152 yards and a TD.
In his career, Rollins-Davis ran for more than 4,400 yards, which is second in Fulton history.
Academics are important to him as he carries a 3.3 grade point average and scored a 23 on the ACT.
In spite of having their dynamo out with a leg injury the final weeks of the postseason, the Falcons still coasted to a Class 4A state championship last weekend.
