Indoors: Took part in six meets as a true freshman, all in the weight throw… finished on the podium once, taking second at the Carolina Challenge with a mark of 15.61m (51-2)… saved his best for last, throwing a season-best 16.95m (55-7 1/2) to finish 17th at the SEC Championships… that was his top mark of the season by over a meter.
Outdoors: Competed in both the discus and the hammer throw in his first outdoor season, seeing action in seven meets… earned his first-career victory in the discus at the USC Outdoor Open with a season-best throw of 49.84m (163-6)… came in 15th in the discus at the SEC Championships… was part of the hammer throw at three meets, improving his mark at each competition… culminated with a hammer effort of 48.17m (158-0) at the USC Outdoor Open.

Son of Orestees Davenport and Karma Simmons… His father played wide receiver at East Carolina and his uncle, Charles, played wide receiver at NC State and also spent five seasons in the NFL, playing for San Francisco, Pittsburgh and Jacksonville… His uncle Bryan was a quarterback at NC State and another uncle, Kevin, played quarterback for North Carolina A&T… Majoring in geography at Carolina with the goal of becoming an officer in the United States Army… Chose Carolina because he wanted to compete at the highest level.
