Keeley Davis is a sophomore from Austin. Davis plays outside hitter and right side hitter for Texas State’s volleyball team. We asked her some fun questions for Bobcat fans to learn more about her off the court.
Kiersten Ehr: What was your favorite cartoon as a kid?
Keeley Davis: I watched “SpongeBob,” that was my favorite show, I don’t know what it was, but I think I have seen all the “SpongeBob” episodes.
KE: When you were growing up what did you want to be and why?
KD: I wanted to be a Shamu trainer because I went to SeaWorld like every other kid and was fascinated by Shamu. My dad’s like, “Keeley that’s actually a marine biologist,” (and) I’m like, “No, I want to be a Shamu trainer.”
KE: What is your most treasured possession and why?
KD: Materialistically, probably my phone, but I don’t know!
KE: What would your last meal be and why?
KD: Definitely something that my parents made; my dad is a great cook and so is my granny. Probably my grammy’s fried chicken, my dad’s macaroni and cheese and green beans.
KE: What is your favorite holiday destination?
KD: I’ve never really been anywhere for a holiday because we travel so much for sports, but I really want to go to Cancun or somewhere tropical for Christmas or something.
KE: What is your dream date?
KD: Some place not at a restaurant, like outside. You know like with candles and dinner. I love that stuff.
KE: Do you have a favorite celebrity that you want to have a date with?
KD: I’m not good with names. You know, the cute one? Ryan Reynolds! He’s cute.
KE: Your biggest fear and why?
KD: I am terrified of the dark. I don’t know why, it’s embarrassing.
KE: If you were stranded on an island what three things would you bring and why?
KD: I would bring something to drink and something to use as a tool and a person; a friend, someone I get along with very well.
KE: Do you have any pre-game traditions?
KD: I always do my hair the same way and if we are doing well I use the same hair tie. I always drink a Spark.
KE: What is your favorite part of being a volleyball player?
KD: I feel like it’s a lot of responsibility, but you get a type of respect, and I feel awesome being able to wear anything Texas State Volleyball because I feel like I’m representing a really good program. So it means a lot.
