Trevor Davis will return kicks for the Cal football team again this season, a year after taking two back for touchdowns against Washington State then suffering a scary head injury on a return against UCLA.
Everyone is on board, including Mark Davis, who called his son’s Oct. 18 mishap at Memorial Stadium “the worst 10 minutes of my life.”
Davis, a senior wide receiver from Martinez, said during Monday’s Bay Area College Football Media Day at Levi’s Stadium that he’s eager to return both kickoffs and punts for the Bears.
“No doubt at all,” he said, when asked if he had any offseason doubts about returning to that role this season. Coach Sonny Dykes said there have been no lingering effects of the knee Davis took to the head that caused him to momentarily lose feeling in his body and sustain a concussion.
“I just remember looking at my teammates, like, `Go get the trainer, like right now. I can’t move anything.’ Luckily it went away before I had like crazy shock,” Davis recalled.
