Safety Akeem Davis knows the importance of hard work.

Swapping roles between the special teams and the defense last season, keeping the same mentality through the ups and downs has given Davis the strength to keep fighting.

“Every time you go out there it’s like a competition,” he said. “You’ve got to get down there fast and you’ve got to wreak havoc when you get down there. I enjoy that part of the game. Being able to block guys, create space for the returner, get down there make a play on special teams that changes the momentum of the game.”

The attitude is defined by a quote he returns to often: “Keep grinding.”

It motivated one fan enough to insert the phrase into the tongues of his Nike shoes, the perfect place to remind yourself as you get ready for the day.
