Current sophomore, Brandon Davis, was only a freshman when he was called to start as quarterback for the Concordia Cadets football team last fall. This sudden change was due to the injury of current senior, Jake Byrd, late in the season last year during a game against Carroll. Davis was the starting quarterback for the freshmen team, but had no experience playing on varsity.
“I never would have thought I’d have to start on one of the most important positions on the field. I was nervous, but at practices it felt different; like I had to go harder to show the upperclassmen that the season wasn’t over and that they could trust me.” After leading the Cadets to a victory over Northside, Davis had gained the trust of his teammates and went on to play a great game against Luers in their first sectional game. Unfortunately, the Cadets lost late in the game and their season came to an early end.
