With 10 hits, eight RBIs and two homers, Houston’s Joe Davis has been named the latest Bobby Bragan Collegiate Slugger Award Player of the Week. In competition against Rice (one game) and Army (three games), the senior batted .625 and had a four-hit game and a three-hit game. On Sunday, he was 4-for-5 with five runs batted in and a home run.
In his junior year in 2018, Davis set a school record for home runs in a season (13). He is also the Cougars’ all-time RBI leader. In 2018 he was named First Team All-Region and Second Team All-Conference. He was also twice selected as the Bobby Bragan Collegiate Slugger Award’s Player of the Week last season (March 20 and May 27).
Davis played high school baseball at Bowie High School in Austin.
