’25 dual threat guy could play a number of places next level
Trajdon Davis was only a sophomore in ’22. That didn’t stop him from engineering a fine 10-3 mark for the Henderson County Colonels which would see them advance to the Regional Championship Game and dropped a 23-10 game to finalist Male High which was more contested than the final would indicate. This guy is a large frame for a dual-threat QB and is a star on the hardwood as well as the grid iron. I would take down this name were I you.HB Lyon, Scouting Division, KPGFootball
There is no better time than the present to anoint another Independence Bank Player of the Week. Independence Bank is proud to sponsor a weekly article highlighting players in the areas where Independence Bank flourishes who embody the same type of revolutionary service to their respective football teams which has made Independence Bank unique and special in the banking industry.
Independence Bank has a goal of achieving everyday excellence, and this week we are focusing on a player who will go into his junior season coming off a sensational sophomore campaign. Today, we are featuring Trajdon Davis, a ’25 QB/LB from Henderson County High who may be the very best dual-threat QB at his level of play anywhere across Kentucky’s largest classification (6A).
Davis’ performances, especially that sophomore season, have exceeded reasonable expectations for the Colonels from Henderson, Kentucky. Davis and his teammates are coming off an encouraging 10-3 season which gives the program hope it, like Buillitt East in ’22, may be poised to enter high school football’s “Promised Land.”
Davis’ Henderson County is located just down the road from the Henderson, Kentucky’s Independence Bank branch located in the Gardenside Shopping Center on 2610 Zion Road. The Gardenside Shopping Center Branch (above pictured) is versatile enough to service many different customers from a variety of surrounding counties.
Get on by and visit this fine branch today. Discover what makes Independence Bank’s people, products, and services revolutionary in the financial services industry.
The Henderson County Colonels will have lost a good bit to the graduation stage once the ’23 season commences. Jordan Wright and Jaheim Williams take over 2,000-yards rushing from scrimmage and 33-rushing TD’s when they are handed their sheep-skins. Saadiq Clements, headed to the University of Louisville, will take his 10.5 TFL’s and 24-sacks with him.
That’s just three players. That’s also a ton of production.
The cupboard isn’t completely bare. Trajdon Davis may have been the most productive and dangerous dual-threat QB in Kentucky’s ’25 graduating class from a year ago.
It is yet to be seen what Davis can do without Wright and Williams in the backfield. If Davis replicates his sophomore production, the Colonels will be in the thick of things again this next season.
In ’22, Davis, from the QB-slot, was a weapon, both running and throwing. Davis completed 68 of 124 passes (55% completion rate) for 1,210-yards and 14-TD’s against 10-picks. Davis rushed 148-times for 784-yards (5.30-yards per rushing attempt) and 11-TD’s (or a TD every 13.5 carries).
When the Colonels break summer camp, to prepare for the ’23 campaign, Davis will be the leading returning rusher. Davis will be the leading returning scorer. Davis will be the leading returning passer.
As for his prospects, Davis is 6’2,” and weighs close to two-bills (200-pounds). He has a 3.5 GPA and is a star for the varsity basketball team in addition to his football contributions.
Simply put, Davis is a skilled and versatile athlete who is thick, tall, has length, and plenty of speed and explosion. It has been my experience athletes, like this, find next-level homes. No reason to expect any less for Davis.
Congratulations to Trajdon Davis both for his Revolutionary Play thus far in his HS career and that which is to come in ’23 and beyond, all of which has earned him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, your friends at Independence Bank.
