Making a push for Field 56

UNION MILLS — As Brett Davis and his wife made their way into the room for the South Central school board meeting Tuesday, a slew of friends and family followed behind, all donning navy T-shirts and sweatshirts with ‘56’ plastered on them and ‘Bub Davis’ stretching across the back, like a jersey.

The group of supporters, ranging from elementary-schoolers to grandparents, was so large that the classroom at South Central High School couldn’t fit everyone. Plenty were packed in tight outside the open door to the meeting, vying for a good enough spot in the hallway to hear Davis and others plea their case to rename the Satellites’ football field, ‘Field 56,’ after Colton ‘Bub’ Davis — Brett’s son and a middle-school football player at South Central who died unexpectedly on Nov. 6, 2019.
