Former HBCU Star Shaq Davis impacted by the New Orleans Saints bringing back Tight End Jimmy Graham

You’ve probably heard that Jimmy Graham is back but did you know that it impacts one of the best WRs in HBCU history, Mr. Shaq Davis? Shaq had to give up #80 and Move to #88!

You’re in the #WhoDat Nation and you’re saying “Who in the H*** is Shaq Davis? (We are only writing this because of the number of Saints Fans that asked this question.) Well that’s what Deion Sanders was saying when Shaq went for 95 yards, 3 TDs, Offensive Player of the Game Honors, and a Championship on Jackson State in the 2021 Celebration Bowl! In fact Buddy Pough said today in his SWAC vs MEAC press conference that he still gets stopped in grocery stores to this day as people recognize him as the guy who beat Deion in the Celebration Bowl. Jackson State will look for revenge against South Carolina State in the SWAC/MEAC Challenge in August in Atlanta. This time the Bulldogs will be with their Baby Megatron and will face a much different Deion Sanders less Jackson State team.

So, who is Shaq Davis? Shaq Davis is a 6’5 phenom that dominated in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) especially the last two seasons. Teams often talked about how they feared his size, speed, and natural catching abilities. Shaq Davis is also the Undrafted Free Agents that the Saints paid handsomely for to secure his services after the draft. Yes Jimmy is Back, but don’t downplay Shaq! His Future is Bright in the NFL!
