Congratulations to Elijah Davis for being the first recipient of our 8 Lives On Youth Athletic Scholarship.

Elijah is a young talented wrestler from Knoxville, Tennessee, who developed a passion for the sport during his football off-season. He joined his first wrestling team while in middle school in Morristown, Tennessee -placing fifth in the state tournament that year and second the following year.  This season, Elijah padded his stats with twenty-six wins and placed third in the regional tournament for his high school team. Elijah’s hard work and determination gained him an invitation to represent Tennessee on the DownUnder Sports Central Conference Wrestling Team in Australia this summer.  He will spend nine days mastering his freestyle wrestling skills, competing, and experiencing the beautiful sights of Australia.  In addition to his nine-day stay, Elijah will also enjoy three days relaxing and exploring Waikiki, Hawaii.

Elijah, 8 Lives On wishes you success at the DownUnder Sports Central Conference Tournament this summer and throughout your athletic career.
