Although Davis only touchdown the ball about four times on offense, he made his presence known. When he catches the ball, you can see the defender get a little hesitant to tackle him. Listed at 6’3, 217 lbs., Davis has the size to overpower his defender.
When Davis touches the ball, you get the feeling a big play can happen, and that’s what happened Friday Night. Every time Davis made a catch, he would stiff arm a defender or two, gain about 10-15 more yards, and then carry a defender or two five more yards before finally being tackled.
Davis had one touchdown on the night, and it was impressive. Davis ran a 10 yard curl route, made the catch, stiff arm a defender, streak down the sideline for 15 yards, outran another defender to the 5 yard line, and then side-stepped a defender to fall into the end zone. Everyone in the stands could see the result before it happened. Davis was too big, too fast, and too athletic for any of the North Paulding defenders. He was playing on a different level.
While Davis did not play much in the second half, he still had a great game. The Archer offense had so much success running the ball that they rarely threw much after the first quarter.
Although the game belonged to teammate Jamyest Williams, Kyle Davis still showed everyone why he is one of the top prospects in the country. He could still work on his top end speed, but he looked faster than I was expecting. He’s well put together with tons of muscle, large hands, and showed leadership on the sideline. Expect Davis to have a monster senior season this year for the Tigers.
