Dominic Davis signs his Letter of Intent to Rend Lake College
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Bowling Green senior Catcher Dominic Davis signed his Letter of Intent to continue his athletic career at Rend Lake College.
RLC is located in Ina, Illinois, and what attracted him there was the community.
“They offered me a full scholarship and whenever I was there, I really liked the program,” Davis said. “I really liked the facility, the communities I was there. I really enjoyed it. I really find myself living there over the next few years.”
Although he’s excited to start his journey, he’s also nervous about moving across state lines.
“Yes, I was nervous,” Davis said. I was nervous to give the speech obviously, but I was nervous inside as well because I’m moving three and a half hours away from my family. I’m going to be there for the next few years.”
His head coach Nathan Isenberg remembers the moment he realized Don will be great.
Practice started at 4:30, Dom’s there at four o’clock with his catcher’s gear on, diving, blocking balls in the dirt by himself,” Isenberg said. “I said, Man, I like this guy is my kind of catcher. My kind of ball player.”
Davis ended his speech with a special message to his former coach, Rick Kelley who passed away.
“I also want to address a recent loss with our community’s head coach Rick Kelley. He has helped me create a love for baseball even bigger than I imagined at the age of 12,” Davis said. “He has always treated me with respect and dignity. May he rest in peace. Again, thank you to everyone that has helped me along the dream.”
You can catch Davis back in the Purples uniform in the spring on March 13, against Christian county.
