Concordia QB shows improvement

VICTORIA JACOBSEN | The Journal Gazette

Concordia quarterback Brandon Davis made three huge plays in Friday's 35-7 win over North Side, throwing two touchdown passes of more than 50 yards and breaking away for a 54-yard run that set up another touchdown. He also ran in a third touchdown on a 5-yard carry. 

"He started this year really as a novice, and he has come a long way," Concordia coach Tim Mannigel said of the junior. "He's still not there, he still has growing pains, but he's certainly getting better as the year goes on."

Davis improved upon his touchdown to interception ratio, which now stands at 14 to 15, and now has more than 1,600 passing yards in his first season starting at quarterback. 

"He's one of our captains, so he's had to embrace the role of leadership on the field, and I don't know how comfortable he necessarily is with that, but he's done a good job with it," Mannigel said. "He had a nice night tonight, so I'm happy for him."
