For Piedmont senior softball standout Bre Davis, her senior season officially became epic this past week.

Davis was officially named as one of five softball players to be a recipient of the prestigious Ferguson Jenkins Award, which is awarded every year to five baseball and softball players along with one baseball coach and softball coach.

Recipients are chosen based off of their athletic and scholastic achievements during the course of a season.

“This is literally unreal for me to be honest,” Davis said about being named to the award. “It’s another blessing for me. I couldn’t believe it when Coach Scott first showed me the email; I didn’t think he was serious. Then he was like ‘uh-huh’ it’s real, and then it sunk in for me.”

In addition to being named the first Lady Wildcat softball player to ever earn Class 5A All-State honors this season; Davis became just the second Piedmont softball player to win the award after Whitney Stover was named a recipient in 2006.

“This award really shows how much love and support I had from my team and my family this year,” Davis said. “Coach (Rick) Scott has always pushed me whether it is in track or softball and he’s always had my back and been one of my best friends. God has truly blessed me this season.”

During her senior season as a member of the Lady Wildcats, Davis finished with a batting average of .408 to go with an. 877 slugging percentage. She also collected 10 home runs on the season and 44 RBI.

Davis did confirm she will be attending the awards ceremony which will be taking place January 28 at the Warren Spahn Award Gala at the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame.

“I’m very excited to attend the ceremony and very pumped as well,” she said. “I wouldn’t be where I am today without my family, friends, the town of Piedmont, my team and most importantly God.”
