Senior Send Off: Dre Davis of Lawrence Central

Sports

INDIANAPOLIS — Lawrence Central boys basketball and Dre Davis had a perfect season, except when facing arch rival Lawrence North.

22 wins otherwise, but LC went 0-for-3 against LN, including a season-ending loss in sectionals.

“I wouldn’t say there’s any regrets,” Davis explains. “We got knocked off, but there’s a lot to learn from it. That’s how I try to look at things, not regretful, but try to learn as much as I can from it.”

It’s only coincidence that Davis faces a similar situation now. He could view missing out on the end of his senior year with regret, but in some ways, he’s okay with it.

Lawrence Central’s Dre Davis chats with coach Al Gooden on the sidelines (WTTV, January 18, 2020).

“I’m a real introvert,” he said with a smile. “Obviously, I wanted to graduate and walk the stage, but it’s not something I had to do. It was a want for me but not something I needed to do.”

But of course, there are some things every senior would like to have.

“I missed out on prom,” Davis added. “At first, I didn’t want to go. Looking at it now, I kind of wish I had the chance to. It is what it is. My life keeps going on.”

Davis will move on to Louisville, joining a Cardinals program that finished top 15 in the polls last season. His approach as a freshman joining an ACC contender?

“You always gotta come out, put your best foot forward every day.”
