York has ‘great atmosphere’ for BC commit

York brings in an out-of-province commit to their Class of 2017.

Dawson Davis, a linebacker from Robert Bateman Secondary, will be exchanging the mountains of his hometown of Abbotsford, BC, for soaring skyscrapers after signing with the York University Lions.

“I chose to commit because it was a great opportunity for football and school,” Davis said. “There was a great atmosphere there and everyone was welcoming.”

The 6’0, 210lbs eight-year veteran spent his time playing with the Robert Bateman Timberwolves (BC Secondary Schools Athletic Association). He will be looking to improve his craft under the guidance of the Lions’ coaches. “They’re great coaches who seem like they will help me become a top-notch football player and person,” Davis said.

In 2016, he won an overall MVP award. For the past two seasons, Davis has been a conference and a provincial all-star.
