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.
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.
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.
following information was revealed during our interview with Josh Davis:
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."
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)."
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."
is your current GPA and ACT score? "I have a 3.5 GPA and a 23 on the ACT."
