My name is Rapheal Davis, and I am a College Basketball Analyst for the B1G Ten Network. I'm a former Big Ten Defensive player of the Year, from Fort Wayne, In. I spent four great years as a Purdue Boilermaker, where I was captain for 3 seasons. Upon graduating from Purdue, I spent 4 years with Eli Lilly Pharmaceutical Company as a Sales Rep in Atlanta, Ga. While corporate work was fun, I have always had a passion
for two things: giving back to my community and, and pushing the youth forward through sports and mentorship. This is why I have started The Crew Life Basketball Foundation.
I currently live in Georgia with my wife and our two children, Ava (4) & Ace(1). Where I run a Youth Basketball Training Academy. We focus on basic to advanced basketball skills, while specializing in defense and shooting. We strive in providing affordable training opportunities to kids of all backgrounds. I offer free and reduced lessons to disadvantaged families.
I travel to Fort Wayne semi monthly, to spend time with my 9 year old daughter, Kyndal. Some of you may remember her as: Baby K, the baby girl who would climb under the press conference table during post game interviews during my Purdue days.
When I am in Fort Wayne, I host basketball camps, clinics, annual backpack drives, college tours, and mentorship events for the community. The kids have grown to love our events, and look forward them.
It brings me an tremendous amount of joy when I am able to come home and give back to my community. Fort Wayne helped build the foundation that I stand on today. I will always strive to do whatever I can to help provide young people with as many positive opportunities as possible.
