ROGERSVILLE -- Lauderdale County's Zach Davis made his college destination official this morning.

The 6-foot-6, 250 pound tight end signed with the University of South Alabama, making him Lauderdale County High's first Division 1 signee since James Haney signed with Alabama in 1978, according to coach Bob Grisham.

Davis, who was primarily used as a blocking tight end, hauled in 5 receptions for 121 yards to help the Tigers to a 9-3 record and a second-round playoff appearance.

South Alabama plans to use Davis as an offensive tackle.
