Flanked by Coach and Athletic Director Greg Sirico, his mother and grandfather, WVHS senior Davis Brief signs a National Letter of Intent to play football at Dartmouth College.

A member of the prestigious Ivy League, Dartmouth is located in Hanover, New Hampshire, and competes with Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Columbia, Brown, Cornell and others. The football team was a co-Ivy league champion this fall under coach Buddy Teevens, and has won 18 Ivy league titles and one national championship.

Davis has played varsity football for the Wildcats as a punter/kicker for five years. During his high school career, he was a two-time East Bay All American and a three-year All-State selection.

Davis had a 43-yard average-per-punt this year as a senior—90 percent of his kick-offs were touch backs. He will graduate from Warwick Valley High School as one of the top Wildcat point-scorers (12 field goals, 135 extra points and 171 total points). In fact, Davis Brief is the #2 all-time scorer in the history of Warwick football, going back to 1876! He is expected to compete for the #1 punting position as a freshman at Dartmouth.

Also talented academically, Davis is a member of the National Honor Society and is currently ranked 26 in a class of 360, with a weighted average of 98.5. He was a five-time Scholar-Athlete and plays with the WVHS Jazz Band and Wind Ensemble.

WVHS Senior Davis Brief signs letterDavis intends to major in mathematics in college. He chose Dartmouth over Duke, Cornell, Harvard and Cortland, because, “Dartmouth just felt like home the minute I walked on campus.”

In speaking about Davis at Wednesday’s press conference, WVHS football Coach Garcia said, “Davis is the hardest worker – always doing something to make himself better. In my 39 years of coaching, Davis is second-to-none in ability, work ethic and character.”

Davis is the son of Jane and Eric Brief. His brother, Spencer Brief, is a sophomore at High Point University in North Carolina.

Congratulations to Davis Brief and his family!
