Josh Davis Pledges to Western Michigan

10 Sep

josh“It’s a great place to be in,” were the words of Detroit Henry Ford senior guard Josh Davis, “a place where I can mature and start my life with basketball and life outside of basketball.”

Davis ended his recruitment with a pledge to Western Michigan, the same school where his mom, dad, and uncle attended college.  As a junior for the Trojans last winter, Josh averaged 14 points, and seven rebounds a game.  Josh notes his greatest strength is shooting, from anywhere on the court.  At 6’5″, he has the length and athleticism to get a shot over any defender, and is particularly effective once sees one go down.

However, his off-the-court accomplishments are just as impressive as the stats he fills on the hardwood.  Davis has a reported 3.8 GPA, and is in various advanced placement classes for his grade.  College coaches love the basketball side of him, but Davis was unique because he was told “how great a teammate” and “coachable” he is.

Josh is considered to be a lead front-runner for the coveted Mr. PSL Basketball award, given to the leagues best player annually.  While individual accomplishments are nice, Davis has never been a self-gratifying type of player.  With his recruitment out of the way, Josh enters his senior campaign as one of only three seniors on the Trojan roster.  Ford competes in Class B, a division won by Milan a year ago.  In addition to the Big Reds, Wyoming Godwin Heights, Wayland, Detroit Country Day, and Detroit Consortium all have realistic possibility to capture the crown.  Henry Ford was a young, inexperienced team a season ago, combined with one of the states most respected coaches in Ken Flowers, Josh believes this is the year people will start to take note of Ford.

“I’m very excited for this upcoming season,” he said.  “I’m confident enough to say we are going to be city champs and also make a deep run in the states.”  “We have been working out all summer and everyone is buying into getting better and that winning mentality.”
