In Saturday’s 12-7 win over Hereford in the state semifinals, Davis won 20 of 22 faceoffs to provide the Gladiators with the needed possessions to advance. He also had two assists.

It capped a week in which he won 39 of 50 faceoffs in helping his team claim the South region title.

The Gladiators’ toughest assignment came in their Section I final against defending state champion and Howard County rival Marriotts Ridge. Davis won nine of 13 faceoffs, including the biggest of his career in overtime, which turned into a Kevin Doughty goal and 6-5 win. In Wednesday’s 15-6 region title win over Southern-AA, he took 10 of 15.

In his second varsity season, Davis went into Tuesday’s state title game having won 200 of 290 faceoffs for a 69% clip.
