Clarksville High School WildcatsClarksville, TN – Clarksville High School golfer Sam Davis became the second player from this year’s District 10-AAA boys championship team to sign to play college golf next year, as he cast his lot with Carson Newman College in a ceremony in the school’s cafeteria April 16th.

Davis joins Hunter Richardson, who signed with Tennessee Martin in the fall signing period.

“Sam is our second player to sign this year,” Clarksville High coach Adam Welch said. “I’m tickled about Sam signing and anytime you’re going to a program that is winning their conference title and going to the NCAA tournament — becoming a part of those type teams — is a great accomplishment.”
