LOGAN, Utah – Three years ago, Will Davis was content to be playing flag football at Western Washington, gunning for an intramural championship. He had tuition money in hand, good buddies at his side and time to figure out life.
Now the charismatic 22-year-old has his sights set on the NFL after a record-setting senior season for No. 18 Utah State that culminates with Saturday's Famous Idaho Potato Bowl against Toledo (9-3).
Like the Aggies, who have won six straight, Davis is on a roll.
The 6-foot, 186-pound cornerback has had an interception in five straight games to earn first-team All-WAC honors. He also has been invited to play in the Senior Bowl in January.
Not bad for a guy who has played only four years of organized football.
