Congratulations to Taya Davis!
Taya Davis is one of the most skilled point guards in Central Illinois and her numbers prove it.
Last year she lead MacArthur to a 29-4 record as a team while averaging 12 points and five assists per game.
Taya says she grew up playing basketball with her older brothers helping her develop the skills that she has now.
She also performs well in the classroom. She maintains a 3.6 GPA and is an honor roll student.
We talked with her on how her tragedy's in life has led to her early success.
