Biography

Healey Davis was an unassuming swingfur, first round draft pick in 1988, chosen by Huntsville. With above average, but not stellar numbers in his rookie year.

Analysts have said he reached his potential by 1995. The level of strength and energy was impossible to miss. His team-first approach was key in revitalizing the Mayors, who were still struggling after their Conference switch.

It was such an improvement that, from 1996 to 2000, the Alabaman team won the FBA title in each occassion.

He retired right after his fifth title, in late 2000. Although man say he was capable of playing more time, interviews revealed that, quote "I finished what I really wanted to accomplish". There was no doubt that the league had grown immensely during his years, lifted by his fame. Coupled with efforts to expand the league's popularity with a broader variety of players and more regions across the country, and even the world, he is credited with reviving the FBA's appeal and influence after a grim past decade.

Personal Life

Married to Jessica Davis (neé Hall). The couple have only one daughter, Crystal; born in 1991, who is currently playing in the FBA for the Williamsburg Minutemen, drafted in 2012.

Although he took a backseat to enjoy a more private, relaxed life, he still keeps contact with friends he gathered over his years in the FBA, many also seen as fellow high-rollers, and has hardly missed any important event he was asked to be a guest to.
