Recruit Spotlight: WR Camron Davis, Captain Shreve High School
by Jace LeJeune and Alex Martin
One of the most underrated athletes, in the Shreveport area, is Captain Shreve senior WR Camron Davis. Davis was named All-District as not only a football player, but as a basketball player as well. That is really hard to do especially in a tough and competitive 5A district. The only other player to do that in District 1-5A this year was super talented Parkway junior WR Terrace Marshall Jr., who will be one of the most highly recruited receivers in the country coming back next season. Davis is no slouch as a great athlete either. At 6’1, 200 lbs.; Davis is a big and physical wide receiver that also has the ability to stretch defenses and come up with big receptions deep down the football field. Before the season, Davis and his Gator teammate Ashton LaCaze Jr. were expected to be the top returning players coming into the season on both sides of the football for the Gators, and they did not fail to meet those expectations. While LaCaze took care on the defensive side of the football, Davis was the offensive catalyst for the Gators. Both made 1st Team All-District as LaCaze had over 100 tackles while Davis was one of the top receivers in the area statistically with over 50 catches and 700 yards this past season. Davis is a versatile receiver as he can use his size to out jump defensive backs and be a vertical threat, but at the same time, he is a smooth runner after the catch and is also a red-zone threat. Louisiana Football Magazine Editor/T.V. Host/Scout Lee Brecheen had some high expectations for the talented Captain Shreve senior wide receiver before the season started.
“Camron Davis has great size as well as great upside for the position,” Brecheen said. “He not only brings size to the position, but he also has the ability to make big plays.”
Lee Brecheen also mentioned that he would be one of the top players in the district, and his prediction came true. Our very own Alex Martin caught up with Camron Davis as he talked about his high school career at Captain Shreve, the strengths to his game, areas that he has to improve on, and so much more in today’s recruit spotlight!
