"South Carolina was the first school to offer me and it happened when I was in eighth grade. During the middle of the school year I got the offer and I couldn't even believe it. It was a shock for me, but it has just pushed me to work harder."

AKA our coaches rock

Let's continue the Davis train. This kid is going to be a BALLER

Well, SC offered him while he was a 8th grader. Oh great another SC/AU match up for a RB, that ended well for AU last time *facepalm.

I'm not fan of that then, but sometimes it's worth the risk I guess.

Default Re: 2016 - Stephen Davis, Jr.

This thread makes truly makes me feel old. Steve Davis, as someone pointed out, still holds the SC 100 record & he averaged something close to 10.5-11 yards per carry which was a record as well (possibly broken by meat or squeaky). So, based solely on the freak of nature his father was, I would have offered him in 8th grade too.

As far as any AU/SC battle, I recall Steve advising Marcus & that worked out pretty well for us.....just saying

I think Marcus Roland from Dorman broke his 100m record.

True story: I certainly know who Stephen Davis is. I mean, it's Stephen Davis, right? So this summer my daughter attended Gamecocks Volleyball Camp in Columbia. On the second day, this big guy comes up to the observation area toward the end of the day and walks over beside me to watch.

I look at him and think "that guy is somebody", but I could not put my finger on it. We ended up talking for about 15 minutes and said "later" as we were leaving. I kept trying to put him in a Gamecocks uniform to figure it out, but could not.

About a week later, it suddenly dawned on me that: "Hey, that was Stephen Davis!" He is correct that I did not recognize him, even though I know exactly who he is.

Stephen Davis was the best high school player I ever watched, right there with Roscoe Crosby. Stephen won Gatorade's national player of the year award. A while back when Tim Montgomery of Gaffney was worlds fastest man Stephen joked about how he always whipped him in races in high school.

He didn't have the college career Bo had @ Auburn, but those of us old enough to have seen him in high school, I think, will all agree-He was our State's Bo Jackson/Herschel Walker back when he played for Sparkle City.

Clowney - different era, but he was/is/will always be the most athletically gifted monstrous freak of a human being I have ever seen play-he is playing w a hurt foot @ 60% or less & still would not trade him for anyone (I played against Macedonia & thought Courtney Brown was until JD came along).

Stephen Davis said he has second guessed going out of state(after the fact) because of the status a player would have received staying instate after he graduated.

Clowney would be that for me too, but I never saw him play in HS.

Davis was over 6'0" 200 pounds and ran the 100m in the same time as Damiere Byrd. So think Marcus' size with Damieres speed. Our own version of Bo and Herschel is a good way to put it.

Clowney has and will retain 10x the mindshare in his home state because he stayed home and helped build something.
