Cardinal Profile: Demari Davis
November 20, 2012Southport High School
Sophomore Demari Davis fell in love with basketball his 6th grade year when he started playing more.
“Football was my main focus, but when I started playing more basketball it became my main focus,” Davis said.
Davis believes he can bring hard work, defense, scoring, positivity, leadership and a good attitude to the team.
Davis said he feels no pressure on him even though he is just a sophomore.
“The team embraces me and my teammates respect me,” Davis said.
Davis has reasonable expectations for this season.
“Everybody plays as hard as they can, we can execute plays, and then win as many games as possible,” Davis said.
Davis likes the new coaching staff, and the fact they have played basketball at a high level.
“I like that the coaches have played at the high school, college, and professional level,” Davis said. “They have had a winning experience that they bring to the team.”
Davis improves on his game by working on his ball handling and by getting shots up.
Davis and the team plan on filling former seniors, Kellon Thomas’s and Michael Ramey’s, presence by working together as a team and having everyone contribute.
Davis says people describe him as positive and always smiling.
