DJ Davis Appreciation Thread

New, 21 comments


Continuing with our appreciation for this special senior class, this thread is in honor of senior WR DJ Davis.  Coming to Oregon as a four star recruit out of Denver, most fans thought that Davis was a future go-to receiver.  However, when Davis' first couple of seasons included an ACL tear and didn't go as expected, he did about the most unselfish thing possible:  fully embraced the blocking role required in this offense, and went on to become arguably the best blocking receiver in Oregon history.  He made plenty of big plays in the receiving game, too, picking up key touchdowns in the big wins over Stanford, Arizona, and Oregon State.  Its players like Davis, who sacrifice the spotlight and noteriety in order to do the little things that don't show up in the box score that are the key to great teams.  Here's to you, DJ.
