Members of the Inaugural TAJ-Talented 10th  Black College All-American Team.

During the month of February, (Black History Month) one member of the All-American team will be featured on the UrbanmediaToday.com website daily. Today we put the spot light on:

N.C. Central’s Davanta Reynolds : (Defensive Back )

 #22  Red-Shirt Junior 
      5’10”  200lbs
    Tucker, Georgia 
(Tucker  High School) 

#1  Nationally in HBCU Football interceptions per game (0.6) #2 in all of FCS Football 
       -Played in 10 games  6 Interceptions (141yards) and a Touchdown

First NCCU Eagle to be named Associated Press All-American since 2006 (3rd Team)
BOXTOROW All-American Team

This season the Defensive Back from Tucker Georgia made his mark on the gridiron with six interceptions. Davanta hit the ground running with an interception in the second game of the season against Shaw. In the two weeks that followed he was a problem for  Florida A&M with his pick six and  a Fumble Recovery for a touchdown against South Carolina State.

 

Throughout the season Davanta was most likely on every offensive coordinators’ radar when it came to facing coach Jerry Macks Eagles. As a matter of fact the interception I referred to in the Shaw game started a streak of four consecutive games where Reynolds came up with a take away; Talk about being a headache for opposing offenses. Davanta finished the 2017 Eagles campaign with a total of 54 tackles (35 Solo), 2.5 tackles for loss,a forced fumble, a fumble recovery (which he returned 85 yards for a touchdown), one pass break up and a quarterback hurry.   I’m quite sure North Carolina Centrals’ New Head coach Granville Eastman can’t wait to see what this All-American will do for the Eagles in the  2018 campaign.
