Davis Attending UL Junior Day

Block (Jonesville, La.) RB Vashawn Davis rushed for over 1,200 yards last year, despite sharing carries in the Bears' Double-Wing offense. The speedy (4.4) back from northeast Louisiana will be visiting the UL campus for the Cajuns' upcoming Junior Day. Find out more about Davis here.

"I ran for about 1,200 yards last year on 140 carries with 10-to-15 touchdowns," said Vashawn Davis (5-8, 175, 4.4). "I'll be the only starter returning in our backfield, but we have another running back who should step in and do well.

"Right now, I'm playing baseball and I lead the state in batting average in Class A. I'm hitting .588 and I've stolen 15 bases (out of 16 attempts). I'm also the closer."

How does Davis describe his gridiron game?

"I look for the hole and when I see an opportunity, I hit the hole," he said. "I can take it outside, but I'll hit it hard inside, too.

"My best games last year were in the playoffs. I ran for 150 yards in each of the two playoff games. I also caught a couple of touchdown passes. We don't throw too often, but we're usually successful when we do."

As you'd expect on the small-school level, Davis plays on both sides of the football. He saw action at corner, safety, and linebacker last season, collecting 35 tackles and two interceptions.

He's attending the upcoming Junior Day at UL and is also getting mail from Louisiana Tech and Southeastern.

Block reached the second round of the playoffs last year before succumbing to eventual state champion White Castle.
