Born in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, a very small town outside of Pittsburgh, Davis, 23, spent the first half of his life in West Philadelphia. He then moved to Northern Virginia, just outside of DC, where his rugby career started in 6th grade at Warrenton Wolfpack Youth Rugby.
Once in high school, he played several sports including rugby, basketball, football, wrestling, lacrosse and track. Davis was one of the first members of the Eagle Impact Rugby Academy. After suffering an ankle injury that took playing collegiate football off the table, he chose to focus on rugby and wrestling in which he qualified to regionals. Davis was named Virginia Rugby All-Star starter from ‘12-’16 going undefeated 3 of 4 years. Before his senior year of HS, he moved to play for Prince William Youth RC winning the 7s State Championship in Summer ‘16.
DeCor then attended Coastal Carolina University earning the first rugby scholarship in school history. He chose to transfer to Queens University of Charlotte to challenge himself academically and on the pitch. His team at Queens won the D2 National Championship in 2019 after finishing 4th in their 2018 campaign. Also while at Queens DeCor was awarded top 150 8-man in 18’ and 19’.
Davis’s squad at Queens University is featured in the recent movie SCRUM, documenting Frank McKinney’s reign as the first African American collegiate head coach.
He says his greatest achievement is graduating college because that was his late grandfather’s only wish. From his time at Virginia State Regional Governor’s School for Visual and Performing Arts his junior year of HS, DeCor is also a very skilled singer and plays piano.
