Réshaan Davis is now an All-Canadian. The defensive end was recognized by U SPORTS at the All-Canadian Awards Gala in Quebec City on Thursday night, ahead of Saturday's 55th Vanier Cup presented by Promutuel Insurance.
Earning a spot on the First Team of All-Canadians, Davis was a statistical leader and physical force for the Gee-Gees for the second straight season. After being selected to the East-West Bowl in 2019, Davis was second in OUA this season with 11.5 tackles for loss and fourth in sacks with seven.
"Réshaan makes game-changing plays," says Gee-Gees head coach Jamie Barresi. "He is extremely difficult to handle in one-on-one situations and that was evident against every opponent. He is particularly effective in key moments and in late stages of games, and even in situations deep in the opponent's territory when their pass protection should be at its best."
The product of Monsignor Paul Dwyer C.H.S. in Oshawa, Ont., Davis started every game in 2019 and registered sacks in five games with two against both Queen's and Laurier. The fourth-year Gee-Gee averaged 4.1 tackles per game and also had one forced fumble and one pass breakup this season. In his career with uOttawa, Davis has registered 13 sacks.
"This award is a tribute to him and to the coaches who have worked closely with him, Coach Hodge and Coach Massey," adds Barresi.
