|Davis excited about signing Scott|
As a former offensive coordinator at South Natchez HIgh School from 1982-85, Copiah-Lincoln Community College head football coach Glenn Davis is very familiar with talent around the Miss-Lou.
Davis signed the cream of the crop in the area on Feb. 2 when Ferriday High athlete Da'Vante Scott inked with the Wolves.
Scott finished the season with 1,434 rushing yards, 24 catches for 341 yards and 721 return yards.
He also had 75 tackles on defense, four sacks and an interception.
"We're real excited to get Da'Vante," Davis said. "We're in need of guys who can play wideout. With defenses changing, you have to find ways to score points. Da'Vante is very explosive and he makes things happen on both sides of the ball."
Davis will begin his seventh year as head coach of the Wolves. His 2010 team finished the season as the MACJC Sout Division Champions and NJCAA Region 23/MACJC State Runners-Up with a 9-2 record.
"The big thing is that kids are buying into what we are doing," Davis said. "And I've been fortunate to keep the same staff for the most part. Everybodty likes being part of a winning team."
Davis led the Wolves to a 21-0 shutout victory over the Georgia Military Bulldogs in the 2006 Sea Island Company Golden Isles Bowl Classic. The Wolfpack finished the 2006 season with a 9-3 record, ranked No. 6 in the final NJCAA poll, MACJC South Division Champions and State Runner-Up.
Davis also coached Auburn All-American Nick Fairley for two years.
From 1997-2003, Davis served as running backs coach at Mississippi State University under former head coach Jackie Sherrill.
Glenn and his wife Minta, are the parents of two children, Ann Shelby and Micah, who quarterbacked under Glenn at Co-Lin and started for Delta State as a junior last season.
Micah was a finalist for the 2010 Cellular South Conerly Trophy. Davis is the No. 12 passer in Division 2, completing 63 percent of his passes for GSC co-champion and national championship bound Statesmen.
Davis established a new Delta State record for pass completions with 312.
"Hopefully he can have the same kind of season next year," Glenn said.
Davis said the Miss-Lou is important to Co-Lin.
"And we give a lot of kids a second chance, whether it be because of academics or athletes," he said. "Wesson is a small place and for those players not caught up in the concrete and lights, it's a great place for someone to better themselves."
