OPSU’s Davis Means Business On AND Off the Field
- by Scott Puryear of Aggie Sports on 10/0705

Goodwell, OK - At a solid six feet tall and 250 pounds, Oklahoma Panhandle State linebacker Ranoaldo Davis has been a serious force to contend with over the last two seasons. One tough cookie on the football field, he was an All-Independent Football Alliance selection last season, and is headed that way again this year.

The junior from Kansas City, Kansas means business on the field, and one can check that out with any of the several running backs he has escorted to the turf in his career.

Off the field, and especially in the classroom, Davis also means business. As a Business Major with a B average, he is respected by his fellow students as well as his instructors. One of his teachers, Sara Hitch, said, “Ranoaldo works hard in his classes, and spends the time and the effort to perform well.”

In his Aggie football gear, Davis always has his head in the game and has come up with some very big plays in the last two years, but perhaps more important, he shows those around him true leadership skills. His position coach, Philip Lovato, said, “Ranoaldo is an individual who leads by example. He steps up, does the job, and is prepared both physically and mentally.”

On top of everything, Davis is a genuinely nice young man. He is polite, respectful, soft spoken, and has a gentle demeanor . . . that is, unless you happen to be running at him carrying a football.

The Aggie fans not making the trip to Kansas for this Saturday’s game with Pittsburg State can catch up with Davis and the rest of the Aggies live from KGYN via internet broadcast.
