Just got the news from Dennis White, who picked it up from WFMY News 2 on their News 2 AP that Sincere Davis, the running back from Page High School, who was shot in the head last week and lay in the hospital for over a week, Sincere Davis has passed away…..

Also got the word from the Page HS bus driver Robert Stutts and he got his notice from Spectrum News and all we can say now is, Rest In Peace:Sicere Davis….

The pain and suffering, they are gone, but gone with them is a young man who aspired to attend and play football at Guilford College next Fall, but the fallen Pirate, #26 as he became known to people all over the state and all over the Triad, that young man’s life has been cut short by some senseless shooting…

Sincere was loved by all within the Page Pirate community and now there is a very large void with his passing and our thoughts and prayers go out today, to his family and friends…..

Again, RIP Sincere Davis and it is a rip that he had his life ripped away at such a young age…

Please keep his family and close friends in your thoughts and prayers and keep the Page Pirate Nation on your list, as they mourn the passing of a fallen brother, from within the Page Pirates’ community/family…..

Let’s look at some of the reports from the area news outlets…

Davis’s coach, Jared Rolfes, said Davis served as a captain on the football team and was on the school’s leadership council.

When FOX8 spoke to Davis’ teammates recently, they described him as a “beautiful person” with “outstanding character.”

On Tuesday afternoon, Naglee released the following statement:

“It is with great sadness that we share, on behalf of his family, that Page High student Sincere Davis passed away on Tuesday afternoon. Sincere was a beloved member of the Page family and we are devastated by this news. We ask that you please respect the privacy of the Davis family and the Page High family during this difficult time.”

Guilford College Statement on Page High School Senior Sincere Davis
Guilford College head football coach Chris Rusiewicz:

Guilford College and its football team are deeply saddened by the passing of Sincere Davis. Our thoughts and prayers are with his parents, his family, friends, and the Page High School community.

Sincere quickly made a favorable impression on our coaching staff, not only as a student-athlete, but more so as a person. The more we got to know him and his family in the recruiting process, the more we wanted him part of Guilford’s football team and community. He was respectful, personable, and made a meaningful impact on our staff in the short time we knew him. We’re shocked by his loss and extremely sorry for the family.


  • Southeast Guilford has Talent said,

    I want to send condolences to his family and friends. We know or have ties to kids that play football at Page and I feel for them. As a parent you try to provide a safe and positive environment for your children, but sadly sometimes that isn’t enough. We as a society have to do better.

  • Just a fan said,

    My heart goes out to Sincere’s family and Pirate and Quaker nation. The times we are living in today are robbing our young men and women of a bright future. As a fan of high school athletics it is disheartening to learn of so many of our kids dying so early, I know in this last year alone, Southwest , Northeast and now Page has lost current or former student athletes and no parent should have to bury their child. I pray that God will continue to provide strength to all of the families affected by these tragedies . God bless us all.
