Former Clemson running back James Davis was one half of the Thunder and Lightning duo in the Tigers backfield that included CJ Spiller.
The ACCDN is looking back on some of the players that don’t always get the credit they sometimes deserve and this part in the series focuses on Davis and his time at Clemson.
One thing Clemson football has been known for recently is producing elite skill position players. With names like C.J. Spiller, Deshaun Watson, DeAndre Hopkins, Trevor Lawrence & Travis Etienne, it’s easy to get lost in the mix. In some circles running back James Davis is credited with laying the groundwork for the success that Clemson has enjoyed over the last decade. Davis made an immediate impact for the Tigers rushing for 879 yards and 9 touchdowns on his way to ACC Rookie of the Year honors. By the time Davis left Clemson, he had amassed 3,881 rushing yards and 47 rushing touchdowns. Enjoy James Davis’ highlights in this installment of Unsung Heroes of the ACCACCDN
