Tristen Davidson, Kingman HS – Student Of The Month Presented By Advanced Physical Therapy

By Blake Chadwick

Kingman’s magical season finished on the disappointing side as the Eagles lost to Nemaha Central 33-17 in the 2022 Class 2A state championship. The Kingman Eagles and senior Tristen Davidson took the loss on the chin, and have worked every day since. 

Davidson is a 6-3, 210-pound tight end/defensive end who earned first-team honors in All-State, All-District and All-League. He’s selfless as a player and knows what it takes to win – and has been fully focused on doing so. 

“My ultimate goal is to lead my team to a state championship win,” Davidson said. “I am a leader and I would sacrifice anything to see my team succeed.”

Though Davidson outmatches his opponents a lot of the time, he understands that the advantages he boasts comes from the hard work he puts in day in and day out. 

“I have been in the weight room constantly as well as doing a lot of drills,” Davidson said. “The team workouts have been tough. They are difficult, but at the end you know that the coaches know what they’re doing and it’s all for the betterment of the team.”

Davidson made a big mark on both sides of the field last year as he led the team offensively with 41 receptions, 692 receiving yards and 10 receiving touchdowns. He contributed defensively with 95 tackles, 21 tackles for loss and 8 sacks. 

Davidson received a lot of interest over the past few months from college coaches and schools giving him a taste of the stressful recruiting process. He admits that he isn’t getting the type of looks he knows he is capable of. 

But with personal goals of getting named All-State, being selected to the Kansas Shrine Bowl and winning a state championship, he believes that this season will help his stock a lot more in the eyes of coaches.
