Originally from Denver, Colorado, Davis spent all weekend, every weekend, watching football, and by the age of eight, his parents knew he would thrive on the field. “By the time I played, I was already a big kid and pretty talented,” he laughed, “so my parents put me in there and that's all she wrote.”
By high school, Davis was an accomplished wide receiver (and a 4.0 student) at Montbello High School. He looked up to his favorite wide receivers, the likes of Terrell Owens and Randy Moss, and tried to model his game after them.
His inherent love for the game was apparent to everyone around him. “Football became really important when I figured out I really liked it,” he recalled. “The coaches would kind of shower me with a little bit of love and say, ‘Hey, you know, you're pretty good.’” And whenever the ball was given to him on fourth down, Davis could feel his coaches and teammates pouring into him and his potential.
