Athlete of the Week: Princess Davis - February 19th

Posted: Updated:

Green Oaks senior point guard, Princess Davis, would describe her final season as a Lady Giant as the best she's ever had in high school.

Davis guided her team to a second place finish in the 1-3A district. But her most impressive performance over the past four years goes beyond the court. Davis is a member of the high school marching band and is a top three student in her class.

"Being a student athlete and a kid that understands that being an athlete is the most important part," said Shayla Canady, Green Oaks girls head basketball coach. "This kid has a 4.2 GPA. She understands that education is first and foremost. And so when she understands that everything else dealing with her is a bonus."

Davis said she always wanted to keep her grades up so she didn't have anything to worry about when it came time to finding a college to play basketball. She will attend the University of Louisiana at Monroe next fall.
