Mike Davis for Heisman?

Mike Davis for Heisman?

The former Stephenson High School running back is considered by some to be a darkhorse candidate for college football’s top award.

Davis rushed for 1,183 yards last season for South Carolina, which was the fourth-most in a season in school history for the Gamecocks.

Former South Carolina Heisman winner George Rogers thinks Davis is a legit Heisman candidate. ““No question about it,” Rogers told The State newspaper. “Mike Davis has got all the skills. He’s got the breakaway speed, he’s got the athletic moves. He’s a great running back and I don’t know if he’ll get the ball as many times as Marcus (Lattimore) did, but if he does, I’m sure he’ll be able to handle that.”

Stephenson coach Ron Gartell also weighed in on Davis, his Heisman chances, and Davis’ glory days of playing for the DeKalb County school in the below video:
