Kobe Davis is a rising star for Langston Hughes in the class of 2022. The 6’0 180lb combo guard has taken over games on both ends of the court against top competition in the state all season long. Davis led Langston (27-0) to the State Championship in early March defeating Pebblebrook in a hard fought final game. Davis was named MVP of the state championship game after finishing with 15 points, eight rebounds, and six assists. He was also named to the CCJBC All-Tournament team for his outstanding performance on the court. Davis has a quick release with an accurate jump shot to go along with the natural athleticism to finish at the rim. He puts his all-around game on display every time out on the court. Whether it’s stealing passes, knocking down jump shots, or finishing with authority at the rim; Davis has the skills to do it all.
Davis spoke to us briefly about his favorite plays this season. “We were playing a 3-2 zone, we trapped them in the corner and I intercepted the wild pass and just dunked it, I actually had two fast break dunks in that Kell game”, he said. “I love defense just as much as offense because I love to hustle, I’m a hard worker. I try to get my teammates involved the best I can. I love to win,” explained Davis.
“The championship against Pebblebrook was very intense. I wanted to show everyone what I was made of in that game. I’m just happy we got that win” he added. Davis certainly left it all on the court as he finished with 15 points in the win to be crowned MVP.
Davis will attend Langston Hughes High School this upcoming fall as a freshman. Langston Hughes has won back to back GHSA 6A State Championships. With top prospects like Davis reloading the Langston program next season, he sees more success in the future. “I’m excited to go to Langston Hughes; I’m ready to help us keep winning championships. I’d love to be able to contribute on varsity right away. I want to continue to improve my overall game. I train four days a week, practice two days a week, just constantly getting better,” explained Davis.
Davis plays for his travel program Team Powell currently in the off season. He’ll compete with the high school team’s summer league moving forward before transitioning into his freshman year in August. The future is bright for one of Fulton County’s rising stars.
