Goals and Baskets: Niverville Dual-Sport Athlete Makes Plans To Do Both

Participating in two sports in the MCAC is a difficult challenge, but Niverville Collegiate's Parker Davis is preparing to take it on, after signing a letter of intent to play varsity soccer and basketball at CMU next season.

"He's a really strong athlete," said Men's Soccer Head Coach Russell Willms, "he combines a high work-rate, speed, coordination and strong attacking and defensive awareness. He's a good player now but I think we'll see really fast development into a great player for our program."

Selected as a Provincial All-star in his Grade 11 season, Davis went on to be selected Niverville's Male Athlete of the Year. In Grade 12, he captained his squad to a #2 ranking as the Panthers entered Rural Provincials.

On the basketball court, Davis is also a key contributor for his high school. The 6'0 guard is averaging 18 points per game on the #1 ranked 'AA' team in the province. Davis was selected a Tournament All-star and MVP at Niverville's home tournament that took place last December and honed his basketball skills through the Southeast Storm and Southeast Huskies club basketball program in Steinbach.

Both Men's Basketball and Futsal are at Providence University College this weekend. Tonight's Men's Futsal tackle the Pilots in Round 7 of the 2018 Copa de la Paz at 6:00 pm. Tomorrow afternoon, the Blazers defend their 2017 MCAC Men's Basketball Championship in Otterburne at 2:00 pm against the Red River Rebels.
