Sammy Davis Interview:
Freshman year is not the easiest year for a college student.
For most, the first few months of school are filled with problems like finding their classes, making new friends and dealing with the wonderful course load that Boston University is famous for. But there are always a few outliers that show that freshman year does not have to be as bad as everyone thinks it to be.
Enter Sammy Davis.
As a freshman, she entered BU as an undeclared student in the College of General Studies. She had to go through the same issues that most freshman face, and did I forget to mention she also plays hockey for the reigning 5-time Hockey East champion women’s ice hockey team?
Unlike your typical freshman, though, she is also an extremely good athlete, and she displayed that through her first month of collegiate hockey. In her first eight games as a Terrier, she scored five goals while collecting another two assists for seven points. That stat line was good enough to get her named as the Hockey East rookie of the month in October, and her stellar play did not stop there.
In the four games since she received the award, she tallied three goals and one assist in four games, including a two goal performance against New Hampshire on November 1st. Her eleven points so far are third best on the team, tied with junior Maddie Elia. She’s also tied for 10th in the country in goals and is just one goal behind Boston College’s Makenna Newkirk for the freshman lead.
Davis was gracious enough to talk to our Terrier Talk crew on Monday night. She was asked all about her early success, what made her choose BU and what her game-day routine is. The audio file for her interview is attached above.
Davis and the Terriers will hit the ice next on Saturday November 14 when they host Hockey East rival Maine. Puck drop is scheduled for 3:00pm at Walter Brown Arena.
