If we are talking about athletes who project as breakout performers in 2015, one of the first names that comes to mind is Trey Davis (5-10 170 Slot/Corner 17′) of Central Catholic. He didn’t get a lot of Varsity time last year, due to the depth of the State Champions roster, but the kid is legit on multiple levels.
Trey traveled to Las Vegas in March, as part of the Oregon/Washington Barton Football Underclassmen group, and had a phenomenal performance. His 3 TD’s on day one helped the region’s top young guys go (2-1) in pool play. Davis comes from a football family as his brother Zack earned 1st team all state honors from his wide receiver spot in 2013, while his father Zack Sr. was a four year starter at Oregon State.
Referencing this off season Trey says, “I will be running routes with my brother Zack, and hopefully making some noise at upcoming camps and showcases.” His brother Zack had an all conference type season at Saddleback Junior College this year as a true freshman, upping his stock significantly down in Cali.
That said the youngest Davis might have the most sure hands of any receiver in the state. He has been one of the most impressive kids in attendance, when referencing the state’s top talent at the BFA Elite Events. Speaking on next year he says, “I hope to be recognized as a team leader and help contribute to another state title.”
Much like JJ Wells in 2014, the junior to be could go off next season. It will be hard to contain Davis with so many D1 athletes on one roster. The Rams will come in ranked the top team in the state, with Trey potentially starting on both sides of the ball.
We wish the talented athlete out of Portland continued success. He is a quality kid on and off the field.
