Northview High School senior Deonta Davison will be coming across the border into Alabama. Davison signed a football scholarship Thursday to play for the Concordia College Selma Hornets in 2007.
Davison is happy to continue his career.
"I will savor this day," Davison said. "Because I still get to play football and go to school and get an education. I can't wait to get on the field."
The moment a son goes off to college is a great day for any mother. Davison's mother, Sheretta Davison, is no different.
"I am proud of him," she said. "I want him to go on and finish his education and make something of himself. He did everything the coaches asked him to do."
NHS head coach Cody Keene can vouch for that comment.
"He has done an outstanding job representing Northview," Keene said. "He is one of the hardest working guys I have ever coached. He is a fine young man and a good football player. We are happy he gets the chance to continue his education and his football career."
Davison's cousin, Kimberly Carter was also present at the ceremony and said she was proud of Davison.
"I encourage him to go all the way and do the best he can do in everything he does and never give up," Carter said.
Also present at the ceremony were NHS assistant principal Mike Sherrill and principal Gayle Weaver.
Weaver had a few things to say about Davison.
"I think Deonta is most deserving of this scholarship and he has an exemplary manner and attitude about him," Weaver said. "He is one of Northview's finest and I am glad to see him get a scholarship and continue his education."
Davison was also a nominee for the Old Spice Red Zone Player of the Year last year for the state of Florida.
