SCOOBA, Miss. (BVM) – Being a quarterback at any level can be challenging and rewarding at times. In Wyatt Davis’ case, that situation has been rewarding.
His career started at Pearl City Central High School, where he was the standout quarterback for the Blue Devils. He threw for over 2,000 yards and 11 touchdowns during his senior campaign. He also completed 63% of his passes.
However, he was unable to generate any offers from D1 colleges. So, he thought the best shot he’d have was to play at the junior college (JUCO) level.
He decided to attend Pearl River Community College, but after a short period there, he decided it wasn’t the right fit for him. He wound up joining East Mississippi Community College (EMCC), which has acquired fame from the Netflix series “Last Chance U.”
“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity the River gave me, but East Mississippi is a place I’ve always wanted to be,” Davis told the Picayune Item. “Plus, Bo [Wallace] is someone I’ve always looked up to, so to be taken under his wing is a true honor for me.”

Despite Davis joining EMCC, nothing materialized. So, following his playing days, he began to coach and develop up-and-coming QBs that can thrive under the right coaching. This program is called “601 Elite Quarterback Big 40.”
Competing at this camp has brought forth some of the state’s best young QBs. Those who are there or eyeing to join the program will only get the best from coaches who want the younger generation to prosper in a game loved by many.
To this point, Mississippi has found itself in the middle of the pack when it comes to states producing top-tier collegiate talent. But with Davis and his camp, young and skilled quarterbacks are hoping to achieve their calling. It’s evident Davis has found his.
