During her entire high school career, Piedmont catcher Bre Davis strived to be a champion not only on the field, but off the field as well.
Tuesday morning, she officially joined a group of champions at the college level.
In front of a standing room only crowd of her friends, family, coaches and classmates inside the Piedmont band room, Davis signed on the dotted line to officially make her commitment to the Central Oklahoma Lady Bronchos softball team, who just happen to be the defending national champions of division two softball.
“I didn’t ever expect anything like this to happen to me,” an excited Davis said following her signing party. “This is just another blessing that God has given me in life. I can’t even begin to imagine all of the opportunities that are going to be awaiting me. I couldn’t be happier about this.”
“This is crazy with the room being filled like this,” Davis added. “Again, this is just another blessing to have this kind of support from everyone like this. Getting to have this moment is the cherry on top for me. Just knowing I have someone to fall back on like my family during this next chapter is amazing.”
Before she officially committed to the Broncho blue and gold, PHS head coach Rick Scott took a moment to brag about his recent college signee, saying that Bre “Always did what was asked of her, and never complained about anything. It’s been an honor to coach her and I know she is going to go on to do amazing things.”
Davis added that she chose Central Oklahoma because it just felt like home, not just with the campus atmosphere either.
“I got that home feeling when I went to visit UCO,” she said. “The staff and the players were just so welcoming to me and accepted me with open arms. It gave me such a good vibe all around from everyone.”
During her final season as a Lady Wildcat, Davis finished with a batting average of .408 with 40 hits and 44 RBI. She also hit 10 homeruns on the season for Piedmont.
Davis was also named the first Piedmont Lady Wildcat to ever earn Class 5A All-State honors following this season.
When asked about the possibility of being a future national champion, Davis answered in her own humble nature.
“I think it has a nice ring to it to be honest,” she said. “But, we’ll have to wait and see.”
