Mission To provide student athletes with personal development, strength, conditioning and the skills needed to make it to the next level of collegiate sports and beyond.To provide student athletes with personal development, strength, conditioning and the skills needed to make it to the next level of collegiate sports and beyond.

Athletic Advantage directly responds to the growing number of student athletes that are either falling through the cracks at school, being overlooked or under-trained based on their schools athletic program or lack of exposure. Of the 330,000 high school seniors who play football, only 20,000 college freshmen continue to play in college, and less than 10,000 received any financial assistance. Generally, only state winners or nationally ranked athletes are recruited by colleges in Division 1 schools. Because of these recruitment practices, many student athletes will never get the chance to pursue their dream of playing college sports.

Our goal is to increase student athlete’s chances of getting into Division 1 schools by providing exposure and the necessary training to perfect and showcase their athletic ability.

www.athleticadvantageinc.org Chris Davis—Founder & CEO My name is Chris Davis and I have been involved in youth athletics as a coach for over 9 years. In those years, I have had the pleasure of coaching some fine athletes, some that successfully advanced to play at the collegiate level. I am originally from Birmingham, Alabama but lived in Phoenix off and on all of my life, attending and graduating from South Mountain High School in 1995 where I played football, wrestled and played basketball. I am a graduate of Ottawa University with a Bachelor in Education and a Masters in Guidance Counseling. I played collegiate sports at both Phoenix College in Phoenix, Arizona where I started as a Offensive Guard and Defensive Tackle as well as a brief stint on the Bears Basketball Team before landing an opportunity to play professionally in the Arena II Football League as a part of the Duluth/Superior Lumberjacks where I was made offensive lineman of the year twice. After a knee injury ended my season early, I returned to Phoenix where I rehabbed and tried to make a comeback playing several years in the Cooper State Football League before hanging up my cleats in 2003 when I made my transition into coaching. I am engaged and have six children together with my fiancé April.
