Former Skyhawk Graduates from Wake Forest Univ.

Terence Davis (Skyhawk '02) recently received his BA in Psychology from Wake Forest University.

 The 6'1" 195 lb. Davis had been an important weapon at WR for the Demon Deacons during his career.  Wake Forest University is a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC).

Before his family relocated to Georgia, many Skyhawk fans remember Terence as a standout QB as he helped lead the Pee Wees to an undefeated season in 2002.  He and current University of Pittsburgh standout, Jason Hendricks (see profile below) , hooked up for a remarkable 60 yard pass in the closing seconds which sealed the championship for the Skyhawks.

Terence has Skyhawks in his blood as he is the son of former Skyhawk Kevin Knight and nephew of former Skyhawk and coach Kendall Knight.

We wish Terence the best in his career.

Make us Proud!!!
