Davis had a very successful career at Navy. He led the team in minutes played in both 2011 and 2012 and finished with 68 career games played and 39 career games started. He also had one goal and two assists for four career points.
Davis carries a 3.54 grade-point average overall and has a 4.00 GPA in his oceanography major. The team captain has been named to the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll three times, the Commandant's List six times, the Superintendent's List three times and the Dean's List once.
