At the Snapper Bowl this weekend, some former Bay County youth football stars making a comeback in the coaching form. Enrique Davis, who graduated from Mosley and went on to play at Ole Miss, coached the 14 and under Lynn Haven Raiders, who took the field Saturday night looking for a Snapperbowl title.
Davis was the #2 running back in the country out of high school, and graduated from Mississippi with a degree in Criminal Justice, and told News 13 he's always wanted to work with kids. He says coaching gives him the opportunity to be a positive influence on the young guys, and give back to the community that raised him.
"I love helping out the community, Bay County's always been there for me so I want to be there for them in any type of way possible that I can, especially showing these kids that there's a lot of different ways," he says. "I want to show these kids that just because you leave and go off to school doesn't mean you can't come back and help out the other guys, and teach them what I learned at an early age."
As far as his own football career, Davis says he's still training, staying patient, and leaving everything in God's hands, and says he's keeping any talks with NFL teams on the hush until something is definitive. Davis' Raiders won the 14 and under Snapperbowl title, 6-0 in overtime.
