Enid’s Chance Davis – Wrestling Spotlight Presented by Stevens Ford
By Travis Sloat
Enid High School wrestler Chance Davis achieved many milestones during his junior year – including one he will always be able to look back on with pride.
“I’m the 2020 160-pound state champion,” Davis said. “I have also won the 2021 Larry Wilkey invite, the 2021 Glenpool Warrior Classic, and the 2021 Jay Hancock Invite. Winning state, I felt like I had achieved something that was my goal sinice I started wrestling seven years ago. It was stunning.”
It’s important to Davis to be an athlete of character on and off of the mat.
The legacy of hard work and motivation is one Davis said he wants to make sure he leaves at Enid.
“I try to make sure my actions and decisions reflect well on my family,” he said. “I also want to represent my school and our wrestling program in a manner people can be proud of. But it is very important to me that I know I am paying the price necessary to be called a true wrestler. I don’t want to just be some guy who wrestled. I want to know in my heart I have earned the respect of every wrestler who has come before me.”
If he carries the work ethic and discipline he has learned through wrestling with him throughout his life, Davis will surely be successful in whatever he does.
