Career[edit]

College and Amateur[edit]

Davis played his college career at the University of New Mexico where he played mainly as a forward, but was noted for his versatility. Davis led the MPSF in scoring while earning first team all-MPSF accolades. He also earned second team all-Far West Region honors.

During his college years Davis also played for Des Moines Menace in the USL Premier Development League.[2]

Professional[edit]

Davis was drafted in the second round (32nd overall) of the 2010 MLS SuperDraft by Real Salt Lake,[3] but was not offered a contract by the team. He signed with the NSC Minnesota Stars in the North American Soccer League in 2011, and made his professional debut on April 30, in a 1-1 tie with the Carolina RailHawks.[4] He scored his first professional goal on May 18, in a 2-0 win over the Puerto Rico Islanders.[5]

Minnesota announced in December 2011 that Davis would return for the 2012 season.[6]
