Davis named to CoSIDA Academic All-America second team

AUSTIN, Texas - Carson-Newman senior tight end Kooper Davis (Selmer, Tenn.) has been lauded by CoSIDA with Academic All-American status.  

Davis becomes the seventh recipient of the honor from the Carson-Newman football team and the 24th all-time among Carson-Newman's athletic department. He joins women's soccer star Jules Herrity among honorees this season. 

The Selmer, Tenn.-native landed on the second team.  

Davis, a biology/pre-med major with a 3.91 GAP, hasn't registered a catch when he's been at tight end for the Eagles, but he has provided for C-N in a role akin to a second tackle.  In fact, Davis does have a start this season at the position. 

The senior is the recipient of the John Abe Teague Award for the member of the Carson-Newman football team who best represents the values instilled by C-N.  He has helped block for an offense that ranks top 20 in the country and a rushing attack that's top 10 nationally.

Davis joins football honorees Chris Horton (1993 and 1994), Keith Ackard (1999 and 2000), Curt Duncan (2012) and Randall Freeman (2014).
