August Martin High School Football quarterback Christopher Davis has decided to commit to Division III Buffalo State Football program, yesterday he Tweeted.
The Bengals will hold a roster spot for Davis for this coming fall season.
Additionally, Davis had an offer from Division III Hilbert College (N.Y.).
Davis, a raw talent, was new to the quarterback position, as he took over duties last summer. But it did not take him long to find traction after the preseason, and thusly put-up solid numbers in 2021.
He led the PSAL Falcons to 7-0 league record and to the playoffs, the first for Head Coach Kyle Allen at the school.
Davis completed 41 of 49 passes for 857 yards and 10 touchdowns and only one interception in four regular season league games. He also rushed for 97 yards on 14 carries with four scores.
Davis’ total stats were 89 completions on 134 pass attempts for 1336 yards and 15 touchdowns with nine interceptions. On the ground, he scampered for 123 yards on 41 carries and four scores.
In the playoffs, he completed 20 of 31 attempts for 310 yards and three TDs with three pickoffs in two contests.
Since David only played one season of high school football and is a fine athlete to boot, Allen said he possesses a high ceiling.
“Chris Davis has a tremendous upside,” Allen said last month. “He started quarterbacking in June. I had no way of recruiting (in the school) during the pandemic, but I’ve been trying to get him to play since he was a freshman.
“He finally gave in and did a veteran job. He’s such a cerebral player with poise and confidence,” the Canarsie, Brooklyn, native added. “I saw his ability to anticipate and his spatial awareness and understanding of leverage when I watched him play point guard (at August Martin). That’s what led me to put him under center. I wish I had more time with him. His future is bright, and he’s an even better person.”
