The Elk City, Oklahoma native went 5-1 with a 1.96 ERA for the BJ’s this summer. He was named the team’s MVP. He also pitched for Liberal in 2005 and 2008. Davis played two years for Hall of Fame Head Coach Galen McSpadden and the Saints from 2004-2006 where he compiled 14 wins for Seward County. As a freshman Davis recorded an 8-2 record while striking out 73 batters in just 71 innings and also contributing at the plate for the Saints hitting a team high .447 in 42 games. As a sophomore Davis was 6-6 with a pair of saves after throwing 87 innings chalking up 46 strikeouts.
