Many players have had the football handed to them over the course of the 100-plus year history of Loras College football. None were more productive than Shane Davis was from 1994-1997. A total of 694 times during his career, a Duhawk quarterback turned around and confidently handed the ball to Davis. Davis, in turn, churned out nearly seven yards per carry to stamp his name on the Loras College record books.

The Chicago native and 1st Team All-American in 1997 holds nearly every rushing record in the program's history and produced what remains as one of the greatest single games on the ground any NCAA Division III player ever provided. Davis holds the records for rushing yards in a game (382), season (1,774), and career (4,734). He also averaged 8.43 yards per carry in 1996.

In Davis' senior season and final game against cross-town rival Dubuque, he provided an eye-popping 382 yards on the ground, including over 150 on his first three carries of the game - a game that finished 52-15 in favor of the Duhawks. That memorable day also propelled Davis to the top of the Loras career rushing list – a place he remains today. Davis also played in the inaugural Aztec Bowl, the NCAA Division III all-star game and was a two-time All-Iowa Conference selection.

Upon graduating from Loras College, Davis held jobs with both local and state police in Iowa, and earned numerous awards and commendations for his service, including a life-saving rescue following an automobile accident. Today, Davis and his wife Hayli are the proud parents of their daughter Hope and son Noble. They live in Gilbert, Arizona and Shane is the pastor at The Chandler Seventh-day Adventist Church and the Phoenix South Mountain Seventh-day Adventist Church.
