VALDOSTA, GA – It all started innocently enough. Two friends, Curtis Thomas and Anthony Saeger, convinced Davis Baldwin to try soccer four years ago. Davis was 10 years old and thought it would be fun to hang out with his friends while chasing a soccer ball. Four years later, Baldwin has turned into a pretty good soccer player who has a real opportunity to take the skills he has learned playing futbol and use them on the football field for the Valdosta Wildcats. “I just started playing to spend time with friends. But I found out I really like the game. I enjoy scoring goals. I also enjoy watching them score and do well,” he says.

Baldwin is a versatile player. He can run, distribute the ball, use both feet equally well, and is accurate to the goal. He plays right midfielder and scored five goals this season, two of which came against Lowndes Middle. In 2013, he also scored a pair of goals against LMS, and he cites those two games as his biggest moments on the pitch.
