Enid’s Brooklynn Davis: Female Athlete of the Month – Presented by Security National Bank

By Ryan Stone

Brooklynn Davis is a senior fastpitch player for the Pacers. Davis has played softball for three years at Enid and has played both left and right field so far this season.

The Enid fastpitch team is in a rebuilding season with only three seniors and a lot of freshmen. With that comes a lot of leadership responsibility for the seniors like Davis. “I really try to lead by example, because whenever I leave, I really want them to be able to do the right thing when it’s their time to be the upperclassmen,” said Davis, “I’m the teammate that keeps a positive attitude no matter what the score, we’re having a rough year and I just try to keep us pumped and still involved in the game.”

With a rebuilding and young team, it also meant starting over in a sense for Enid during the offseason. “We really worked on from the very beginning and just worked on everything and basically started over like it was tee-ball and we did a lot of work on defense,” said Davis.

Outside of softball Davis is a standout in the classroom with a 4.0 GPA. She is involved in Student Council and Upward Bound, a college prep program through NOC-Enid. After high school she plans to attend NOC for two years and then head to NWOSU with the idea of majoring in pre-med.

The way Davis handles herself on the field and off shows the type of character she has. “To me it’s the type of person that you are in the community,” said Davis, “it’s pretty important because it’s how people look at you based on your personality and generally if people think you have good character then you’re a good person.”
