Davidson players make college selections

Hilliard Davidson High School held a ceremony Feb. 6 to recognize three football players who will play at the collegiate level.

Jonathan Browning will attend Division II Walsh University, Tyler Doty will attend Division III Case Western Reserve and E.J. Jennings will attend Division II Ashland.

Last season, Jennings shared Player of the Year honors in the OCC-Central Division with Dublin Coffman defensive lineman Miles McCollum. Jennings rushed for 1,597 yards and 24 touchdowns on 312 carries and was first-team all-district in Division I.

Doty, a linebacker, was first-team all-league and honorable mention all-district. He had a team-high 110 tackles.

Browning was an offensive lineman.

“The Davidson football program continues to be proud of those student-athletes who choose to continue their athletic and academic careers,” coach Brian White said. “We always look forward to following the progress of those players who leave our program and continue to play at the collegiate level. We especially wish John, Tyler and E.J. continued success over the next four years.”

Last season, Davidson finished 10-3 overall and shared the league title with Coffman at 6-1. It was the Wildcats’ third consecutive league title and 13th overall.

Davidson lost to Pickerington North 21-0 in the Division I, Region 3 final.
