For four sweet years running back Terrell Davis has given defenders fits in the B.C. high school football league. On Monday he was named the province's AAA player of the year for 2011. Davis has made a verbal commitment with the Washington State Cougars for the 2012 NCAA season. This summer Davis played in the Canada Cup for Team B.C. (under-18).

Like his namesake, Terrell Davis is a star on the gridiron.

Four years ago he was still wearing lacrosse shoulder pads under his football jersey when he won the Island’s Gold Cup as a junior bantam Saanich Wolverine in June of 2008.

Davis has come a long way from his days as a duel sport all-star, when he had lacrosse coaches salivating at his speed and size. But unlike his dad, a former Victoria Shamrock, Terrell is sticking with football, having committed to the Washington State Cougars for the 2012 NCAA season.

On Monday (Nov. 21) Davis was named B.C. High School Football’s AAA player of the year. He’s the first Mount Douglas Ram to earn the honour.

It comes on the heels of Davis’ 150 yards rushed against Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers on Friday.

Also announced on Monday were Rams receiver Taylor Young to the 2011 AAA Provincial All-Star Team for offence and Mitch Ottosen for defence.
