There have been many great athletes who have come through Forbush High School. Many of them have gone on to college to play the sport they succeeded in all through high school. It takes a lot to play sports in college, students have to maintain good grades and make sure they are at every team event.
When Calyn Davis was asked how long she has been playing basketball she said, “basically ever since I could walk.”
The very first game of her senior year was very special for her because she scored her 1,000th point. She had 999 points at the end of her junior year. She ended her high school career with 1,316 points, 360 rebounds, 321 assists, 238 steals, and 194 three-pointers.
Davis has been a three-time all-conference player, and a three-time team MVP. She also has been named athlete of the week on WXII News. After her four years of playing varsity basketball at Forbush High School, she has committed to play at Roanoke College. She signed on May 5 in the gym of Forbush. She was surrounded by many of her loved ones.
Not only was her high school basketball coach there, but her high school soccer coach was there. Davis not only succeeded on the court and field, but also in the classroom. She is top 10 in her class. The class of 2017 and all of Forbush wish Davis the best of luck in her journey at Roanoke College.
