SJ: What is it you like about soccer?

Davis: I just like getting to play soccer with my friends. I really like working hard and having something to do.

SJ: You already have more assists this season than you did last. Have you been more focused on assists this year, or has the opportunity presented itself more?

Davis: I think it’s more the opportunity was there, and I switched positions (from striker to attacking mid), and that probably had something to do with that.

SJ: What is your biggest strength as a soccer player?

Davis: Probably the biggest thing is being able to score goals. I’m really competitive, and I try really hard.

SJ: What are your goals for this year’s team?

Davis: Probably win as many games as we can and be a better team.

SJ: Are you involved in any other organizations at school?

Davis: I’m in Beta Club, and I’m in the Drama Club. I do a lot of musical theater.
