Tyrone Davis

Halifax native and former Halifax County High School, University of Virginia and Green Bay Packers standout Tyrone Davis smiles as he shares light-hearted remarks with game officials while walking off the field following the pre-game coin toss prior to the start of a 2017 Halifax County High School-Martinsville High School football game at Tuck Dillard Memorial Stadium.

It’s not every day a kid from Halifax County High School goes on to play Division-I football at the University of Virginia. It’s even rarer that he goes on to play eight seasons in the NFL. It’s unheard of he goes on to play in Super Bowl XXXII.

Tyrone Davis could claim all three.
