With a team leading 26 yards receiving, Cincinnati St. Xavier senior tight end Noah Davis was happy to get back on the field for a real game.
“It's a good feeling just to get the blood rushing again,” said Davis. “To get to play with the guys, get the camaraderie up and get the chemistry going.
Much like Michigan State runs their offense the Bombers use a lot of two tight end sets and Davis showed his strength as a blocker and receiver with his two catches and one touchdown while also opening up holes that saw the Bombers rush for 214 yards.
“I'm very excited by what we have as a team and this should be a fun time,” he said. “We've got a really good offense going and when our defense is clicking we can do big things.”
While excited to take his game to the next level, Davis stresses he's only got one goal on his mind at this time.
“My goals are simple this year as we want to win a Greater Catholic League Championship,” he said. I think we can be really good as we've got a great offensive line and our running backs are amazing. Plus Sean Clifford is always one of the best quarterbacks I've played with in my life and our group of receivers are great. So if we can put it all together we should have a great season.”
Like many 2016 Spartan pledges, Davis plans to return to Michigan State for the Spartans battle against Oregon in Week Two of the college football season.
