Davis Accepts Invite to 2017 Reese’s Senior Bowl

Posted: Updated:

(GoMocs.com)- University of Tennessee at Chattanooga senior Keionta Davis has accepted an invite to participate in the the 2017 Reese's Senior Bowl, announced today.  Davis is the 2016 Southern Conference Defensive Player of the Year and led the league with 10.5 sacks as a defensive end.

The Senior Bowl is the nation's most unique football game, featuring the country's best senior collegiate football players and top NFL draft prospects.  They represent teams from the North and South that are directed by the entire coaching staffs of two National Football League teams.

Davis is the seventh Moc to compete in this prestigious showcase, including Chester Lagod ('53), Tom Drake ('54), Dick Young ('55), Curtis Rouse ('82), Travis McNeal ('89) and Terrell Owens ('96). 

The Senior Bowl is always played on the weekend prior to the Super Bowl.  This year's game is set for Saturday, January 28, at Ladd Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala. Kickoff is 2:30 p.m. (E.S.T.) on the NFL Network.

Davis, a Chattanooga native, is an All-American who is second all-time at UTC with 31.0 sacks.  That number is also seventh all-time in the SoCon.  He finished ninth in the voting for the Buck Buchanan Award, which goes to the top defensive player in the FCS.  That was the highest by a Moc in school history.
