Bishop Dunne athletic director to be inducted into Texas High School Football Hall of Fame

Kenneth Davis, Bishop Dunne High School‘s 46-year old athletic director, says this week’s news of his hall of fame induction "brought tears to my eyes."

Davis was an 1984 All-America running back at Texas Christian University with a then-school record of 1,611 yards, and as a professional with the Buffalo Bills, played in four consecutive Super Bowls in the 1990-93 seasons. But his Texas High School Football Hall of Fame nomination is a reult of his years playing for the Temple Wildcats, the team which Davis helped lead to its first-ever high school football championship in 1979.

He will be this year’s 1980s inductee in a May 6 ceremony at Baylor University.

Davis played three seasons with the Green Bay Packers and four with the Bills, winning four AFC championships, but says "my memories are greater of winning a state championship.”
