Mike Davis Team Spirit Award

The Mike Davis Team Spirit Award was established by Mike's family and friends as a loving tribute to his spirit and to his memory. A graduate of Freedom High School, Mike was on the varsity basketball team in his senior year, and supported his teammates during games as well as practice. He loved basketball and he loved the unselfish spirit of athletics. His wholesome attitude and enthusiasm were an inspiration to the team and are the reason that this scholarship award was created.
