Josh Davis' recruiting profile

<BR><A HREF=""><B>Josh Davis</B></A> (OT, Tylertown, MS) - Tylertown has a proud and rich tradition in the Mississippi ranks.

Look for the same old Chiefs next season, as they are loaded with talent and will probably be considered the favorties along with Franklin County. In fact, Tylertown and Franklin Country played each other in the 3rd round of the playoffs, with Franklin coming away with an overtime victory.

Tylertown loves to control the line of scrimmage, and one of the big reasons they are able to achieve this goals is due to the play of their star lineman, Josh Davis.

Josh, who has won back to back District 8(3A) Lineman of the Year, committed to the Rebels shortly after he got back in from Ole Miss' Junior Day.

The following information was revealed during our interview with Josh Davis:

What is your current height, weight, and forty time? "I am 6' 6", 295, and I run anywhere from a 5.5 to a 5.6."

Which position do you play for Tylertown? "Left tackle."

What are your strengths at left tackle? "I guess my ability to out think my opponent. I am smart out there. I can move pretty good. I have good footwork."

What are your working on to take your game to the next level? "The weight room mainly. I am also working on perfecting my fundementals."

What are your current strength numbers? "Not good, but that is what I am working on. I bench around 275 and squat around 425. I need to be in the 400 (bench) and 500 (squat) range when I get up to Ole Miss. I know that. That is why I am working so hard now."

Did you garner any awards for your play last season? "Yes sir, I was named District 8(3A) Lineman of the Year again."

How did Tylertown fare on the field last season? "We went 11-2 and lost to Franklin County in the 3rd round. We lost in overtime. It was tough. But that is alright, we got everybody coming back. It will different this year."

Which colleges were writting you, that you were also interested in, before you committed to Ole Miss? "Auburn, N' Western, Alabama, and MSU."

Why did you choose Ole Miss? "Because I liked their coaches the best. I liked what they are talking about. They seemed smart. They are going to make it into a good football program, and they already have the players there, so it is not like it is going to be some 2 or 3 years before I get to play in a bowl. They will win big starting this year. They have been good. They just fell off last year, but with Coach Orgeron there now, they are going to win bigger than they ever have. He knows what it takes to win and win big. He already has like a (national) championship on each finger (laugh)."

What are your expectations as a team and as an individual for the 2005 campaign? "I want to build on what we did last year. My sophomore year, we made it to the 2nd round of the playoffs. Last year, we made it a round further. And this year, we need to take it even a step further and win it all. Me being a senior, I will have to play even harder and make more plays. I am going to be starting both ways this year (OT and DT), so you know, I have to make plays everywhere. They will be leaning on me, and I have to come through if we are going to achieve our goals."

What is your current GPA and ACT score? "I have a 3.5 GPA and a 23 on the ACT."
