Bio

 

Serving for 17 seasons as the head coach at Wesleyan Christian Academy in High Point, Davis’ illustrious coaching career includes five North Carolina Independent School Athletic Association championships, six NCISAA state-runner-up finishes, 14 Piedmont Athletic Conference Independent Schools conference titles and an overall record of 357-94.

Developing 32 collegiate players throughout his Wesleyan tenure, Davis’ most heralded former athlete is Thomasville native and San Diego Padres star Wil Myers. A four-year starter at Wesleyan and a two-year veteran of the HPT Post 87 HiToms program, Myers has emerged as the greater High Point area’s most decorated scholastic baseball player.  Earning multiple All-State NCISAA honors for the Trojans, Myers was drafted in third round of the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft by the Kansas City Royals and has since won the 2013 Rookie of the Year award and earned a spot on the 2016 National League All-Star team.

A native of Trinity, Davis starred at Trinity High School under Dick Gurley and then at Ledford for Davidson County baseball legend Gary Hinkle. Earning all-conference and all-state accolades at both schools, Davis starred as well on the Post 87 HiToms American Legion predecessor, Thomasville Post 41.  Following five summers at Finch Field with the 41’s that included a 44-game hitting streak, Davis excelled under legendary Louisburg College head coach Russ Frazier earning All-Conference, All-Region and All-American honors. The Atlantic Coast Conference welcomed the Trinity native next as Davis spearheaded Sam Esposito’s NC State program winning ACC regular season titles in 1986 and 1987.
