BREVARD COUNTY MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Following a record-breaking season Florida Tech’s Adonis Davis has garnered yet another major award, as the Associated Press has named him a Division II First Team All-American.
Davis is the first Panther in program history to receive the honor from the AP. Earlier this month he was recognized as an AFCA Second Team All-American and just yesterday was named one of the nominees for the Cliff Harris Award, given to the nation’s top defensive player.
The Columbus, Ohio native was one of the most impactful players on the defensive end of the football in the Gulf South Conference this season.
A redshirt junior, Davis ranked near the top of the league with 19.0 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks, both totals were single-season school records. He led Florida Tech with two forced fumbles and finished tied for second on the team with 59 total tackles. Davis was named to the All-GSC First Team for the second year in a row this season.
Davis is one of 10 players to represent the GSC on the All-American teams.
The AP All-American teams were selected by a panel of sports information directors from around the country.
