Wyatt Davis Commits to PRCC
Wyatt Davis has officially closed the door on his high school football career by accepting a scholarship to play football at nearby Pearl River Community College.
Earlier in the day the Wildcats came through the Davis’s very first offer. Having played high school football at Pearl River Central and growing up just 15 minutes from PRCC, it was just too much to pass up.
“The coaches said I would have a great opportunity to play and get a great education,” Davis told SES Mississippi. “What I like the most is I have the opportunity to play in front of my friends, family and community.
“It’s the greatest feeling to be able to play in front of my family and fiends again.”
More important than where he went, was that he would be able to go somewhere, anywhere. Davis realized a dream of his when he decided to accept a scholarship to play college football.
“I have worked for this my whole life,” He said. “I started when play pee wee when I was five years old. The more I played the game, the more I loved it.”
He’s thankful to his parents for supporting him and guiding him to reaching a checkpoint in life.
“My parents instilled in me that if you work hard enough you can do anything,” Davis explained. “That mentality started at a young age.
“I’m thankful for my dad, because he showed me how to be a quarterback, and how a quarterback carries himself.”
Looking back at the past two seasons, it’s easy to trace the giant impact Davis had for PRC. In 2015, his junior season, he led the team to an 11-1 record and PRC’s first division championship in 25 years. This past fall as a senior he became the first quarterback in school history to throw for more than 2,000 yards.
Davis is proud of each accomplishment because of the hard work that went into both.
“It never happened over night,” He explained.
He will continue to work hard as he transitions to the next level, with hopes of playing beyond junior college. But his time in high school will never be forgotten.
“I want to be great on the high school level,” Davis said.
“I’ll miss the Friday nights and playing with the group of guys I grew up with.”
A plan for own down the road, even beyond college, is also clear to him. He wants to go into coaching.
“I love the game. It’s something I want to be around for the rest of my life,” Davis explained.
In closing, Davis took time to reflect on his camp appearance at the Fortius Project last March, where he was named to the All-Combine team.
“It’s one of the most enjoyable camps I went to,” He said. “It’s a great opportunity to get better, compete and meet new people who are dream chasing like you are.”
As he showed that day at camp, and throughout his senior season, Wyatt Davis is a playmaker. Some schools might have been skeptical about his size, but his arm strength and athletic ability make up for it. Good luck catching him in the pocket or getting a receiver to out run his deep ball.
