When I was a Freshman - Rajai Davis

By: Simon

Name: Rajai Davis
High School: New London (Norwich, CT)
Freshman Year: 1995-1996

Ever wonder what your fave sports stars were like in high school? We talked to San Francisco Giants center fielder Rajai Davis and found out!

Simon: What were you like when you were a freshman?
Rajai Davis: It was my first year in a new city. That was the first year I moved to New London, so I had to adjust to getting to know people and making new friends. I was definitely pretty shy - didn't really go out of my way to introduce myself to new people. I wasn't that outgoing. If I got to know you then that was a different story.

Simon: What was a typical outfit you would wear?
Rajai Davis: I was pretty much wearing what everyone else was. My jeans weren't as baggy as there's, but they were baggy with the gym shoes. I was always a Nike man - always wanted to wear the Nike shoes. I also liked to wear nice collared shirts. Other than that, I just wanted to wear Nike.

Simon: Did you play any other sports?
Rajai Davis: I played three sports - football, I played basketball, and baseball in the springtime.

Simon: What musical artists did you listen to at the time?
Rajai Davis: Back in the day - I don't listen to it anymore - but I used to like watching BET. Whatever was on BET, I was listening to it. It's been so long it's hard to remember specifics though!

Simon: What TV shows did you watch?
Rajai Davis: Bill Cosby, Simpsons. Definitely watched X-Men on Saturdays.

Simon: What was your favorite class?
Rajai Davis: I liked Algebra. Math was always a good subject for me, I just always excelled with math, as opposed to reading, which wasn't my best friend (laughs).

Simon: And your least favorite?
Rajai Davis: I don't remember the teacher's name, but all I know is in that class we had to read so many books and we had so many detailed pop-quizzes. You had to read it, Cliff Notes wouldn't help you (laughs).

Simon: Were you a ladies man?
Rajai Davis: As a senior - not to brag or anything - but I mean I was the homecoming king. I had a good time, I didn't really have a lady in high school, I stayed single.

Simon: Did seniors pick on you?
Rajai Davis: I didn't have too many problems. They weren't as bad when I got there, but a few years back I heard they were worse with getting freshman.

Simon: If you could go back, would you do high school all over again?
Rajai Davis: Would I do it again? Well, that's tough because the road hadn't been easy. I had my ups and I had what I thought in my mind at the time, you know, failures. But it was for the good, so that's why I am here right now because I persevered, worked hard and never gave up.

    The only time you slide is at second and at third, sometimes at home. When you're stealing from first base you need to slide to second unless the opponents pitcher is clueless or is a rookie.
