A-State's Brian Davis named Capital One Academic All-District VI
From Arkansas State University
Arkansas State senior kicker Brian Davis, a 2012 and 2013 Lou Groza Award semifinalist, has been named a First Team Capital One Academic All-District VI football selection.
Davis has made 51 career field goals, the second most in school history, and scored an A-State record 295 career points by kicking while also holding down a 3.75 cumulative GPA as an accounting major at Arkansas State University. Davis is an ASU Athletic Director's Honor Roll, Chancellor's List, Honors Director Honor Roll and Sun Belt Conference Academic Honor Roll member.
The Brentwood, Tenn. native is a perfect 10-of-10 on his field goal attempts this season, including one covering a career-long distance of 50 yards, and leads the team in scoring with 60 points. Davis has made his last 12 consecutive field goals dating back to last season for the second longest streak in school history. He has made all four of his field goal attempts covering at least 40 yards this season.
Davis is currently ranked ninth in the nation in career field goals made (51), 10th in career extra points made (142) and 12th in career field goal percentage (.823) among active players. He needs only one more point to become the Sun Belt Conference' all-time leader for points by a kicker.
He already holds the Arkansas State single-game records for most points by kicking (23) and most field goals made (6). He needs eight field goals to break the school and Sun Belt Conference records for most field goals in career (58).
Also on the College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) National Placekicker Trophy Watch List, Davis was a 2013 Preseason First Team All-Sun Belt Conference choice and a Phil Steele's Midseason First Team All-Sun Belt pick.
Davis was a 2013 National Football Foundation (NFF) Scholar-Athlete Awards candidate and a William V. Campbell Trophy semifinalist. He has been named a CFPA Specialist of the Week three times this season, and he has been chosen as the Sun Belt Conference Special Teams Player of the Week three times during his career.
