J.D. Davis Awards

The J.D. Davis award was established in 1979 by the athletic staff. It is an annual award given in memory of a long-time coach and physical education director.

In the late 1920's, J.D. Davis was a superior athlete on the Maryville College campus. He excelled in three sports- football, basketball, and baseball- receiving 12 letters and numerous honors for his achievement. After a short stint in professional baseball, J.D. returned to his alma mater and began his dedicated service as a coach and teacher.

J.D. was a positive influence in the lives of hundreds of young people on the MC campus. He coached football, wrestling, and track and also served as the chairman of the physical education department. J.D. retired in 1971 after 40 years of service.

This award seeks to honor senior student-athletes who exhibit leadership, athletic ability, Christian values, and academic achievement. These are all characteristics for which J.D. Davis is remembered.
