He was 13, a tenacious kid with an athlete's build and a chip on his shoulder. A lacrosse coach at St. Ignatius Loyola liked the fire in the youngster's belly but wondered about his attitude. The coach asked around and got an answer. Two years earlier, the boy had witnessed the drive-by shootings of his father and uncle. Both men died. "That [incident] showed me how tough and resilient a lot of these children are," said Damien Davis, the coach. It's kids like that whom Davis wants to reach.

As a defensive end on McDonogh's football team last fall, Joe Rosenbaum might have tried to drill Gilman running back Damien Davis if given the chance.But in wrestling last winter, Rosenbaum sought Davis' counsel against a common opponent.Today at 4 p.m. on Gilman's lacrosse field, the two seniors will be directing their respective defenses in a matchup of the area's top-ranked teams. Rosenbaum leads No. 1-ranked McDonogh (17-2) against Davis' No. 2-ranked Gilman (10-3) in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference regular-season finale for both teams.

Onlookers often find the beauty of Damien Davis' game in his wide array of takeaway checks, his galloping runs through midfield and his unrelenting pursuit of ground balls. But even in lacrosse, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the aspects of Davis' game most pleasing to Princeton coach Bill Tierney are more subtle. Take Saturday, for example. Davis, a 6-foot-1, 210-pound junior defender out of Gilman, held Georgetown's Steve Dusseau, the likely winner of college lacrosse's top honor - the Tewaaraton Trophy - to a goal and an assist in Princeton's 14-13 NCAA quarterfinal win. A conservative Davis relied on his brains and his positioning, often forcing the Hoyas' sniper into the teeth of Princeton's quick-sliding defense.

PRINCETON, N.J. -- Damien Davis will be only the third freshman defender in 13 seasons to start for Princeton when he comes to Homewood Field for tomorrow's season opener at No. 3 Johns Hopkins. But Davis always has had the tendency to dive right in and go after things. Reginald Davis calls Damien "the most independent and fearless" of his four children, including James, 22, Alex, 21, and Allison, 13. Marilyn Davis recalled how 2-year-old Damien, longing to follow his father to work, set out on a two-block trek, all alone, before friends brought him home.
