Athlete of the Week: Ryan Davis

The Scoop:

Davis is a sophomore pitcher for the Le Moyne Baseball team. This southpaw from Queensbury, NY has made quite an impact on this team. Sporting #16 on the mound, this excellent pitcher leads the team in innings and wins. He has appeared in nine games, winning six and losing two. He has an impressive 71 strikeouts on the season and has thrown three shutouts. He averages 9.5 strikeouts per game and has only let up one triple and one home run all season. Davis recently picked up his third Northeast-10 Pitcher of the Week accolade. This young player is someone to watch out for.

How he got started:

“I got started with baseball because my father is a very sports oriented guy, so I feel like I grew up always playing sports with him. Whether it was shooting hoops in the driveway, playing catch with the football, or him pitching a tennis ball to me when I was young. Baseball always seemed to come easiest to me so I stuck with it.”


Major and future plans: 

Ryan is a business administration major. He hopes to own his own business in the future. He says he wants to hopefully incorporate sports or baseball into it.


What made him decide to be a pitcher:

“I never really decided I wanted to be a pitcher, it’s just what came most natural to me and what I was having the most success at.”


Person/people who have had the greatest impact on Ryan:

“The people that have had the most impact on my baseball career are my family. My dad, mom, and sister have always been the most supportive people when it came to baseball. I can’t thank them enough for constantly carting me around from games and practices when I was younger and they still continue to make every game that I pitch, which is the best!”


Goals he has reached and what he hopes to achieve: 

“This year I received Northeast-10 Conference Pitcher of the Week twice which is really cool. The goals for the rest of the season… I mean we would obviously like to make a national championship run. We started off kind of slow as a team but we’ve recently turned it around and we’re looking stronger than ever.”


Advice to other players:

“I’d have to say even if you’re not getting the playing time you want on the field, keep working as hard as you can in practice. Not only will coaches recognize that but working hard will do nothing but benefit you when its game time.”


Most memorable moment as a Le Moyne Dolphin:

“My most memorable moment as a Le Moyne Dolphin was last year in the NE-10 Conference championship game. It was a back and forth game versus Franklin Pierce and we ended up winning the game. Throughout high school I never got the opportunity to win a sectional championship or state title, so when the whole team ran out to the pitchers mound to dog pile it was the greatest moment in my entire baseball career.”
