Georgia Bulldogs cornerback Aaron Davis has been awarded an athletic scholarship after starting 10 games last season. Davis had 40 tackles with five pass breakups and an interception in 2014.
The redshirt sophomore began his career in Athens as a walk-on.
“I don’t really want to boast,” he said in response to the scholarship, appearing to be very humble.
Davis is the type of player who would rather his game speak for him, than his own words or even a scholarship. Davis said receiving a scholarship was never his intention. He intended to walk-on and take advantage of any opportunity that crossed his path.
“I always felt like if I strive to be the best player that would be something beyond a scholarship,” Davis said, via the Athens Banner-Herald.
Davis is in the middle of a minor setback for a major comeback; recently practicing with a cast on his left hand for a fracture. Gaining a scholarship is nothing more than a perk to him.
Aaron Davis and the Georgia Bulldogs will take on Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday, Sep. 5 in their season opener.
