Titletown QB

Dillon Davis

Texas state champ Aledo HS QB Dillon Davis has committed to Columbia. 

I spent a good deal of this past long holiday weekend looking at videos of or about Davis and he comes across as the kind of player the coaches liked more for his heart and leadership abilities than any other attribute.

Based on the enthusiasm of the coaches about this incoming class overall, I'm expecting 3-4 more very top notch player commitments to be announced in the coming month.

This extremely well-produced video about Davis' family history tells that story really well.

Davis will be the first Aledo HS grad to come to Columbia football.

Great look not only about Davis and his family , but also the level of
high school play in that part of Texas ! Seemed like a bunch of talented high schoolers playing college ball, including Dillon, who quite possibly will be our starting QB, at some point in his career...
