Former Webb City High School standout Zach Davidson is hoping to hear his name called, and get his shot in the league next month.

Davidson is a tight and end punter at Central Missouri. He was an All-American at both positions in 2019. As a tight end for the Mules that season, he racked up 15 touchdowns on just 40 receptions, averaging 22.35 yards-per-catch. He earned five All-American Awards for his big year.

The former Cardinal impressed at his pro day last week.

His performance at his pro day has caused the former Cardinal to gain more and more interest from NFL teams as the draft approaches.

Davidson is confident that he’s ready for the pro’s – but he also says he’s not even close to his ceiling as a football player with the draft just a month away.

“I feel like the sky is the literal limit for me. I’ve only played tight end for a season and a half,” Davidson says, “I think the depth of the game that I’ll be exposed to will do numbers for my overall play style and what I’ll be able to do on the field and for an organization. I am definitely very confident that once I get there I’ll be able to just expand my game to an all-time high and learn from some of the best to ever do it…I’m just really waiting on my shot.”
