Central Michigan Chippewas: Wide Receiver Titus Davis Ready To Explode In 2014

Central Michigan

The Central Michigan Chippewas had a disappointing 2013 season that saw the team drop six games and fail to make to it to a postseason bowl game. The team battled injuries with starting quarterback Cody Kater and starting running back Zurlon Tipton being injured in the first game of the season. However, head coach Dan Enos was able to make adjustments and led the team to six wins and a .500 record. Although the Chippewas offense struggled to find balance, wide receiver Titus Davis separated himself as a legitimate playmaker for the team.

Davis had a very impressive 2013 campaign for the Chippewas. For the season, he recorded 61 receptions for 1,109 yards and eight touchdowns. In the final five games of the season, Davis had four 100-yard receiving games and four touchdowns. Of his eight touchdowns on the season, Davis exploded for a 97-yard touchdown catch against New Hampshire.

Davis possesses great hands and plays much bigger than his 6-foot-2 frame. He is a big-play threat every time he touches the football and will have a bigger impact entering next season with steady quarterback play.

He has progressed year after year and is poised to break out in 2014. Davis has 24 touchdowns in three seasons and will be the main target for the Chippewas’ aerial attack in the New Year.

Davis’ six 100-yard games were best on the team and his 61 receptions were fifth best in the conference. Davis finished second in the conference with 100.8 receiving yards per game and will be a preseason all-conference selection entering 2014.

While the Chippewas will try and make strides towards a bowl game next season, Titus Davis is poised for stardom.
