Tularosa QB Tyler Davis had a big 2007 season. He stands 6'4 205 and will be one of the top players in the small school ranks for the 2008 season.
This past season Alex Carson from Hatch Valley was probably the top signal caller in the small school ranks. Next season who will take the reigns? Several players appear to have the talent, one of those players is Tularosa QB Tyler Davis. Davis is a dual threat type that doesn't get all that much credit because he plays for a small school. If he played for a bigger school he might be a household name by now.
Davis stands a very impressive 6'4 and checks in at 205 and he runs in the 4.8 range. Again if he had been playing at a bigger school it's easy to see why he would be a bigger name. The 2007 season was a big breakout year for Davis, he was voted 1st team all district throwing for more than 1000 yards and also rushing for more than 1000 yards. When talking to Davis you find a kid that really has his priorities straight when it comes to the game of football, "my best memory from last season, was just how our team came together, over the years we have had some hard years at Tularosa, so for us to come together and have a winning year that easily sticks out in my mind."
Any good QB needs to be the leader of the team, even if someone doesn't want to be the leader of his team, the position demands you to be that guy. It's a role that Davis really looks forward to, "my personal goal is to try and be a better leader and hopefully lead our team to a state title." In order to win a state title, a lot of hard work has to be done, which again is on Davis's mind, "I really need to work on throwing the ball, I'm working on timing and that sort of thing with my WR's right now, hopefully all this work will allow us to not have as many dropped balls that we had last year."
With a guy as talented as Davis it's easy to understand that he will have college football aspirations. "I really want a chance to play football in college, I will seriously consider playing at any school that gives me the chance to play." Most colleges will not offer a QB without personally seeing that player throw the ball in person. If he can get out to camps this summer he might have that chance to throw in person.
We would like to thank Tyler for his time and wish him all the best of luck in the future. Remember to keep checking back with PrepNewMexico.com for updates on Tyler over the course of the off-season.
