Dominique D. Davis (Born July 17, 1989) is a quarterback for Fort Scott Community College. He played for the Boston College Eagles for two seasons before transferring to FSCC after an academic suspension. Davis was the back-up quarterback for senior Chris Crane and took over after Crane suffered a broken collarbone against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. His first victory as a starter came on November 28, 2008. The 28-21 victory over the Maryland Terrapins clinched BC's spot in the 2008 ACC Championship Game. His brother Desmond Clark plays tight end for the Chicago Bears.

High School

Davis earned FSWA All-State Class 3A first-team honors as a senior quarterback and was an honorable mention as a junior. He threw for 2,758 yards and 28 touchdowns in 2006. He completed 16-of-33 passes for 271 yards and one touchdown in the Kathleen High School's regional semifinal loss to Hardee. He completed 136-of-227 passes for 1,659 yards and 11 touchdowns as a junior, leading Kathleen to a 10-3 record and the district title. He also competed on the school's basketball and track and field teams.

2008 Season

After sitting out the 2007 season with Matt Ryan leading the Boston College Eagles, in his second season he and Chris Crane vied for the position of quarterback early on in the 2008 season. Dominique got his first snaps in a game against University of Central Florida following a poor showing by Crane. He also played in the following game against University of Rhode Island, but then was benched by Coach Jagodzinksi as Crane certified his position.

Then in week 13 against Wake Forest Chris Crane went down in the 2nd Quarter and Dominique Davis came in with a 13-0 lead. Davis played mediocre, fumbling twice as the Boston College defense kept the game close until the final minutes of the game. Then with less than 4 minutes left Davis completed a long 3rd down to WR Rich Gunnell to put BC into scoring range. Following a pass to WR Brandon Robinson Davis capped the drive with a short run for the winning score.

2009 season

Davis was suspended for academic reasons in June 2009 and decided to transfer.[1] On July 26 he announced his decision to transfer to Fort Scott Community College, where he plans to play one season before transferring back to a Division I program.[2] He chose to transfer to East Carolina University.[3]

Davis helped lead Fort Scott Community College to its first Jayhawk Conference championship since 1974, defeating Butler (Kansas) Community College in the final game of the regular season. Butler had won the previous eight Jayhawk Conference championships. It was the first time FSCC had beaten Butler since 1986.

Two weeks later, in a rematch, Davis' FSCC team defeated Butler, 13-12, to give the Greyhounds their first-ever Region VI Playoff championship. The Greyhounds were given the No. 1 ranking in the national poll and were matched up against No. 2 Blinn (Texas) for the National Junior College Athletic Association national championship in the Citizens Bank Bowl on the campus of Pittsburg State University. Blinn rallied from a 26-10 deficit in the second half to win the game 31-26 on an 84-yard punt return with 15 seconds remaining. Fort Scott's 11-1 final record was still its best since going undefeated (11-0) to win the 1970 national championship.[4]
