The TSN announcement comes just hours after Davis was recognized on the College Sporting News’ 2011 Inside The HBCU Huddle Black College Football Division I FCS All-America team.
“First off, I want to thank God for this blessing,” said Davis of the news. “It’s very exciting to receive national recognition. It’s a great opportunity to not only shed some light on me, but also on my teammates and this institution. It’s a great honor and I’m very thankful.
