Davis sets the tone for Highland up front

Highland struggled on the field last year, but that doesn't mean they don't have some solid D-1 football prospects. OL Cody Davis (6-4, 295) is letting his coaches handle recruiting right now as he prepares for his sophomore season and JCFootball.com caught up with him to get his thoughts on how things are progressing...

"Right now I'm not really concerned with that stuff," Davis told JCFootball.com when asked about recruiting. "The harder I work at getting ready for my season and getting better, the more my play will show that I'm worth a scholarship."

Davis said a couple of D-2 schools have written him over the past few months, but he's been hard at work in the weight room improving his strength and quickness.

"I'm working hard on my upper body and lower body right now," Davis said. "I want to get stronger and get quicker so I can pull and be a better run blocker.

"I'm a more natural pass-blocker, but I love run-blocking because you can be aggressive and I love 'blocking down' on the tackle.

"I can play all three positions along the line, but I think I'm probably a better fit at guard. That's where my coaches think I'm a better fit."

Davis prepped at Blue Valley North High School in Overland Park, Ks. and was a good student, but he didn't get much in the way of recruiting attention so he took some time off to think about what he wanted to do.

"I got a job, but I really missed playing football," Davis said. "When I started looking around, I talked to my high school coach and he recommended I come to Highland, so that's why I'm here and I've been really happy."

Last season, Highland went 0-9 in one of the toughest JUCO conferences in the country, but with talents like Davis, the Scotties have a chance to make some noise this fall.
