20190523 SHSSigningA Sharyland High School senior, who has found success on and off the field, will play tennis for the Concordia Tornadoes.

Michael Davis signed a letter of intent Thursday, May 23, to attend Concordia University-a Division III school-in the fall to participate in their men’s tennis team.

Davis is a 3-year letter winner in SHS’ Men’s Tennis, a 3-time District Champion, a 3-time Regional Qualifier, a Mixed Doubles Regional Finalist and a State Qualifier in Mixed Doubles.

Academically, Davis has maintained a 3.56 GPA on a 4.0 scale and will be graduating in the top 15% of his graduating class.

He is a good example of what a student athlete is, head coach Michael Salinas said.

“It was a pleasure having Mike play for us,” Salinas said. “He made the rest of our teammates play better, that was something he did for us. He’s been successful since he started playing for us and has been a hard worker on the court and in the classroom.”

Davis thanked those in attendance and credited Sharyland for his success.

“This school gives us the base of what we need to be able to play collegiate sports and improve,” Davis said. “It’s only a matter of us taking time to take that chance.”
