Scholar Shines on the Court and in the Classroom

DavisIn November, Fulton-Montgomery Community College named Spring Creek Towers’ (SCT) Scholarship recipient, Tyrone Davis, Male Raider of the Month for his academic and athletic success.

The school writes:

Davis is the starting point guard for the men’s basketball team.  He can control play from the perimeter, and he can attack the basket with impressive speed and athleticism.

Head Coach Ed Collar gave a glowing description of Davis’ play in November, stating, “Tyrone has really improved his game in his second year as a Raider.  He pushes the fast break and controls our half-court offense, which has made the Raiders one of the highest scoring teams in the region.  He averages 11 points per game, while also leading the team in assists.  Tyrone has also been the team’s most consistent player as well.  Through a recent five-game winning streak, Ty scored in double figures in every game.  He is one of the team’s main go-to guys when they really need a basket.  He is almost impossible to defend, as he is great off the dribble, has a tremendous pull up jumper, and can finish at the rim with either hand, in a variety of acrobatic moves.  Tyrone is also a strong student, with a solid GPA.  He is a well-rounded person, who strives for success and truly epitomizes the Raider Way.”

Editor’s Note: This article was published by Fulton-Montgomery Community College regarding Davis’ steadfast ability to maintain a 2.5 G.P.A. and his excellent performance on the basketball court.

Davis is a 2013 SCT Community College Scholarship Award recipient.   The 19-year-old point guard will be obtaining his Associates Degree this year in Media Communications.  After graduating, he would like to pursue his Bachelor’s degree and work towards a career as a Pro-basketball player.

Basketball has always been a passion for Davis, as a child he played for various teams and with friends while attending Spring Creek Towers’  Teen Central program. He is completely enraptured by the sport’s teamwork and overall gameplay.  When Davis is not studying in his school’s library, he is constantly watching and learning the techniques of point guards like the Charlotte Hornets’ Kemba Walker and the Los Angeles Clippers’ Chris Paul.
