It seems only natural that Theresa Davis would have a fondness for the athletic program at Carver High School. She graduated from Carver in 1999. While there she was also a key member of the Yellowjackets’ tennis team. She was also one of the football team managers for the 1998 Carver team that won the State 3-A Championship.

Davis recently gave back to Carver’s athletic program, donating shorts for the Yellowjackets’ football team.

“We decided to give these shorts so that the players would have matching gear for spring and summer workouts,” Davis said. “The weight room and off season conditioning program are vital to the success of any football program. We hope this will serve as an incentive for the kids in the program.

“Having graduated from Carver I understand some of the school’s challenges and it is only natural that I would want to give back,” she said. “My dad [Sam Davis] and I formed an Athletic Apparel company a few years ago and we wanted to contribute to some of the programs that he and I have been a part of over the years. My dad was on the coaching staff at Carver for many years and helped Carver win two state championships. He was assistant head coach on the 2002 team that won the state championship as well. He always instilled in me the need to give something back.”

Carver recently announced that long-time assistant Greg Scales is the new head football coach. Davis said she thinks that is a positive move for the school.

“Coach Scales is a no-nonsense kind of coach and that’s what I think the school needs,” she said. “He is very knowledgeable and hopefully our gift will inspire other alumni to reach out. Carver has gone through some rough times lately, but we believe in the school and want to show our support for Coach Scales, Athletic Director Melvin Palmer, and the entire Carver Nation. Anyone who graduated from Carver understands the impact that being a member of Carver Nation has made on their lives.”
