Trajdon Davis a versatile, dual-threat dude @trajdon11 @minguabeefjerky @1776Bank @840WHAS

’25 dual threat set to lead the Colonels back to district supremacy

Henderson County won the district crown in 6A, District 1, a year ago and entered the playoffs with the home field and the number one seed. The Colonels were upset in the second round by a McCracken team hitting a “heater,” but that did not negate the Colonels’ 5-2 mark in its classification and its 3-1 district work sheet. Trajdon Davis had a lot to do with the success and he returns in ’24 for a final tour.

The terms, “dude” and “buster,” are terms of art in the football world. They are antonyms, meaning they are polar opposites.

Successful programs are measured by the number of “dudes” stockpiled on its play roster. Struggling programs seem to stockpile “busters.” Too many “busters” will doom a coach to futility.

These terms are hard to define. However, a football person knows the difference between the two and can identify one instantly.

Trajdon Davis is a “dude.” He is a dual-threat QB we have known about a while. Matter of fact, if you will use the above link, you will see we have before written about him.

A “dude,” as best as we can describe, is a football playing stud who exudes “football player” from the moment he laces his cleats. Davis is 6’2,” and weighs close to two-bills (200-pounds).

Davis is a class of ’25 guy who plays QB and lists LB as his defensive position while sporting a 3.5 GPA. That is a “dude” on so many levels, even in the classroom.

Davis had a big sophomore year, one we reported on when making him the Revolutionary Player of the Week. 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).

Davis’s production slipped a bit over his junior season. Of course, he was the focal point of every scouting report disseminated around the district by teams trying to corral him. That will do it.

In ’23, Davis threw for over 1,100-yards and 12-TDs against only five (5)-INTs. Davis was the team’s second leading rusher in ’23, gaining close to 500-yards on the ground in 154-carries with nine (9)-rushing TDs.

Davis was third on the team in scoring (62-points, one point out of second). Heck, he registered a tackle on defense. Not a ton of QBs playing 6A ball can match that claim.

Davis gets a final tour in ’24. There are some goals he would like to accomplish.

He would like to win the region, he would like to play for the semi-state, he would love to run onto Kroger Field and “shoot his shot.” We don’t know which, if any, of these goals will be attainable. We do know Davis is the “dude” to make them happen, if anyone can.
