December 14, 2015





NORFOLK (WAVY) — Lake Taylor High School football standout Wayne Davis has been named the Gatorade Virginia Player of the Year. Davis plays wide receiver and defensive back, and won a state championship last season with the Titans.


Lake Taylor is 13-0 this season and is riding a 28-game winning streak. The Titans play in the 4A state semifinals this Saturday at Lake Taylor against Courtland. Kickoff is set for 2:00 p.m.

Davis has signed to play his college ball at Ohio State University. He’s the first player from Norfolk to win Gatorade Player of the Year honors.





Lake Taylor’s Wayne Davis, an Ohio State signee, was named Gatorade Virginia Football Player of the Year on Thursday.

Davis, a defensive back and wide receiver, is the first Norfolk player to win the honor.

Davis has played a key role for a Titans team that won the Group 4A state championship last season and plays Saturday in the 4A East Region championship game against Courtland on Saturday. Lake Taylor is 13-0 and has won 28 consecutive games.


“I can’t think of another player in my 17 years as head football coach more deserving of this award than Wayne,” Lake Taylor coach Hank Sawyer said. “He plays the game of football like it was invented to be played.”

Davis has been a playmaker on offense and defense this season. He leads the Titans with 30 receptions for 645 yards and six touchdowns and has returned five of his six interceptions for TDs.


Davis is the eighth South Hampton Roads player to win the Gatorade state honor, following Green Run’s Matt Darby (1986), Wilson’s Aaron Sparrow (1990), Princess Anne’s Kai Parham (2001), Western Branch’s Vince Hall (2002), Oscar Smith’s Phillip Sims (2009), Bayside’s Demetrious Nicholson (2010) and Oscar Smith’s Andrew Brown (2015).
