CHS's Davis walks on at Cameron

CHICKASHA —

After a season leading Chickasha as a senior, catcher Tresjon Davis will take those  skills to the next level.

Cameron University is his next stop, where he will be a preferred walk-on in next season's Aggies squad. Davis said he will be red-shirted in his first year and has already had a chance to meet with the team.

"The team is pretty close, just like here," Davis said. "They have a lot of different guys, some taking up the leadership role. They're like us; they don't have the biggest guys, but they get out there and fight hard."

With Cameron just down I-44 in Lawton, Davis said the close proximity was part of what made the university a preferred choice. But there were other factors that made the Aggies a familiar fit.

"The coach that recruited me is a lot like [Chickasha assistant Blake] Taylor," Davis said. "It was an easy transition there, it felt like home. And it's not too far from home."

This year's winner of the Fightin' Chick award for baseball, Davis displayed leadership qualities throughout the season. After the narrow loss to Bishop McGuinness in the regional final that ended their season, it was Davis that stepped in to give the post-game talk.

Davis had to overcome injuries this year, including surgery prior to baseball season and a niggling ankle injury during football. He had to overcome both in order to get to the next level and admits his relief at getting into the Cameron team.

"It was a relief," Davis said. "With the whole surgery thing, shoulder and all of that stuff, it was just good to see somebody that actually sees how well I came back after that surgery."

He also said he was confident that within the next few years, the Aggies' starting catcher position will be his.

"I think I've got it," he said.
