It was a good year on the football field for McDonogh 35 wide receiver Craig Davis in 2021.
The rising junior made the All-District First Team in New Orleans after a big campaign, and he is back to help the Roneagles make a deep run in the playoffs.
Oh, and maybe get himself a scholarship offer or two: well, maybe more.
The 16-year-old is 6-1, 185 pounds, and has a 77-inch wingspan with 10-inch hands: those are some standout numbers for a wide receiver. Davis has been working hard in the offseason to post even more impressive workout numbers: he already has a 32-inch vertical and a near 4.5 40 time, and those numbers should start to improve with another year in the weightroom.
But the impressive numbers do not stop there: Davis has a 3.7 GPA after four semesters, and is going to keep improving in the classroom as well. The future seems very bright for the big receiver.
Here is a scouting report on Davis from a coach:
“The first thing you see is his size, and his wingspan. He is able to go up and get some passes that other receivers can’t. That is so important: he makes his QB better, and his offense better. He is very quick, but also has pace to get behind defenders.
“Davis is also a very smart player. He learns new schemes so quickly. He runs routes well, and is a star in the classroom. There really is a lot to like about him, and he is a great person off the field. He is going to be a big-time player this year.”
