What’s goin’ on?
He’s not a rah-rah guy. He just gets it done.
Geremy Davis has his motivation.
There is none greater.
“I’m a big follower of Christ,” Davis told me during AAC Media Day in Newport Tuesday. “I was blessed with these abilities and I want to take advantage of these abilities he’s blessed me with.”
The abilities Davis is talking about helped him become the first 1,000-yard receiver at UConn since it joined the FBS era ad the first since Carl Bond surpassed the mark 16 years ago. Those abilities have come in the form of great hands, size, power, super route-running, blocking skills, etc.
The 6 foot 3 senior wide out has done nothing but improve and mature at a rapid pace since he got here and now that he’s got one season left with a degree under his belt and in search of another, he’s looking to accomplish even bigger things on the football field.
The praise head coach Bob Diaco has heaped on him, calling him one of the best at his position in the country, has certainly motivated him more to have a better 2014.Davis, however, seems most motivated by his blessings.
“Whenever I have to chance to improve on those and glorify Him I’m going to do it,” Davis said. “I don’t want to get to a situation where I sit down and say ‘Man, he didn’t give me these abilities to sit down” no he have me these abilities to play this great game we call football and to glorify Him on and off the football field which I’m going to do. I’m just thankful he’s blessed me.”
