Coach Travis Cunningham on Davis: “Although Jason is gifted athletically, he knows what it takes to get to and stay at the top, and his work on the mat and track speak to that. He pushes himself and those around him. When he gets something in his mind, he knows how to set the course to achieve that goal.”

The Pacesetter feature will be a recurring weekly feature through the end of the season in the second week of March. Have a nomination you’d like us to spotlight? Wrestlers must have exemplary record on the mat and character and sportsmanship off it as well. Drop us a line at nefloridamatmen@gmail.com with your nomination. Thank you for your support!

I covered wrestling for 15 years up north and "retired" in 2011. But as I thought I had in 1992, I couldn't stay away. Started Northeast Florida Matmen in 2013, Northwest Florida Matmen in 2015. New initiative this year is to create a space on my sites where ALL Florida results can be stored, searched, reviewed and used by my readers, with NO COST TO THEM.
