Feather River's DE is a terror off the edge

A young man who exploded on the scene this past fall as a freshman was Feather River DE Emilious Davis (6-0, 245). Posting 11 sacks to go along with 54 tackles, the talented edge-rusher hopes to get a chance to play D-1 football after the 2012 season...

Davis had outstanding prep career at Miami (Fl.) High School and had several schools eying his talents. However, he was unable to qualify, so he headed west to try and get things in order and to earn a scholarship.

"I didn't get good enough (SAT) scores," David told JCFootball.com. "I was looking around for JC programs and I had a couple of friends who had come out here to play and they said that's what I should do.

"I checked it out and have been really happy out here, although it's really different. There's snow. I'm enjoying that, definitely, since I never saw much of it when I was a kid."

As a freshman for the Golden Eagles, Davis was a thorn in opposing offenses' sides, posting over 50 tackles and 11 sacks.

"I get after the quarterback," Davis said. "I do it well because I never quit, I never stop pusuing.

"I'm dedicated and I'm motivated to be the best I can be and I give 150% every play. I play it like it's the last play of my life."

So far, not many schools have made inquiries into his availability, but he said he hopes that picks up in the spring.

"I think once people can see what I can do and how I get to the quarteracks, things will start to pick up," Davis mentioned. "I love to play the game and people will see that in my film and in what I have to offer."

Davis said he's loading up on classes to be able to finish in December so he can sign mid-year. However he said if that doesn't work out, he's on pace to graduate in May of 2012 and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
