Madison's Reggie Davis mans streets and catches passes


MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison's own Reggie Davis lives quite the life. During the week he runs after criminals, but on the weekends he's eluding defenders. Davis has been a officer for the Madison Police Department for the past three years. His job is to keep a watchful eye on Madison's west side, and keep people safe from crime. On the weekends though, Davis is a wide receiver for the Madison Mustangs semi-pro football team.

Davis has played the sport for most of his life. He played at Madison East High School and then went on to play college ball at UW-Platteville. Since his days with the Pioneers, Davis has played 11 seasons of semi-pro football. He's caught more than 100 career touchdowns passes in that time, an impressive accomplishment that can be credited to his dedication to fitness and remaining durable.

As a kid, Davis had a tough upbringing on Madison's east side. His father was in jail and his mother was forced to work two jobs, while raising the family. His mother's example, and Davis' drive to avoid becoming a product environment he was raised in has allowed him to achieve success that he is proud of. Davis hopes his example can help show the people of Madison, no matter your upbringing, anyone can achieve success with hard work and determination.
