A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
It doesn't take long for Austin Davis to recall the greatest summer of his life.
"The summer between my 8th grade year and my freshman year, I grew three inches and lost about 40 pounds," said Davis.
He went from 6'4" to 6'7" almost overnight. Soon he would grow an additional two inches. Colleges that once had no idea who he was were now very much aware of the basketball player from Onsted.
"I've been to Michigan and Michigan State for two unofficial visits. I was at Toledo for an unofficial visit," Davis said. "We're a small town here, so we really don't get a lot of this. It's been an amazing experience."
An experience that by no means is over: Davis averaged 21 points and 15 boards a game this past season. Scary numbers, but even scarier when you realize he was only a sophomore.
"My first impression of him was, ‘Oh my word almighty!'" said coach Jerry Sigler.
As far as colleges go, Davis says he does not have a front runner at this point. He's just taking his time and enjoying the ride.
"I've just tried not to dwell on things. I've tried to stay down to earth as much as possible and just focus on basketball."
