Who Is Akeem Davis?

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on April 10, 2014 – 11:23 am

 

The Washington Redskins announced Thursday the team  signed free agent safety Akeem Davis, giving the young prospect a shot at extending his NFL dream.

But Davis – who has no NFL experience save for a stint in Seattle’s rookie minicamp in 2013 – looks like he would land on his feet if he’s unable to catch on with the Redskins.

The defender graduated Cum Laude from Memphis in 2011, earning his Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration (Finance) before the end of his athletic eligibility. He worked toward a Master’s degree in Liberal Studies while starting all 12 games for the Tigers in 2012, when he was named the inaugural winner of the Lee Roy Selmon Community Spirit Award.

Davis made the leap from community college to Division I-A, overcame the death of his mother and successfully returned from an ACL tear at Memphis.

In an interview with the Memphis TigerNetwork, Davis talked about what he would do if football didn’t pan out.

“If that doesn’t work out, my dream job is to really be an athletic director,” Davis said.

“I want to be an athletic director on the high school level. I want to be able to continue to build and sustain personal relationships with the people around me, the kids, the adults, and the teacher and be able to sustain those relationships through the course of a lifetime. I just want to be able to touch lives man, and just be a positive impact on people’s lives and help any way that I can.”

For now, Davis is still chasing. Here are extensive college highlights from Memphis.

    I would love for a relatively unknown free agent to come right in and take over the SS spot. I’m just so thankful that Reed Doughty will not be back.

    Reed Doughty did great with his limited talent he’s bless with, and his veteran leadership help on feild as well as the locker room. With that being said upgrade needed badly STILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I agree with Terry. Reed was probably one of the smartest defensive backs we had and would have been a great teacher for some of the younger safeties we are getting, luckily we have Ryan Clark to do that now.
