About Jabari Davis

Jabari Davis is best known for his time as a running back for the Tennessee Volunteers from 2001 – 2004. Nicknamed the “J-Train”, Davis was the team’s active touchdowns leader. A physical runner with speed to burn, Jabari could play both tailback and fullback with aplomb. His experience with goal-line situations gave him a reputation as a dependable short-yardage back. Davis was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week three times during his college career. Here are just some of his career highlights:

  • In a 2003 game against Florida, Davis helped lead the Vols to victory with a 78-yard, two touchdown performance.
  • Davis had two career 100-yard rushing games, with a career-high 135 during a 2002 game against Arkansas.
  • In the 2002 season, Davis was the University of Tennessee’s second leading rusher with 559 yards.
  • In the 2003 season, Davis scored eight regular season rushing touchdowns, leading the team and ranking fourth in the SEC.  

Today, Jabari Davis is the CEO of his own training camp company, a football coach, and a college recruiting scout in East Tennessee and North Georgia. He is a proud Vol for Life and attends as many Tennessee football games as he can.
