Statement from the family of Sincere Davis(Page High School):
“We are very thankful for the prayers and well wishes directed to our son in this very difficult time,” said the statement from Darnell and Tasha Davis(father and mother). “The show of support over the last few days — especially from his fellow students — has been especially heartwarming.
“We are appreciative. However, Sincere is critically ill and at this time the family must devote its full attention to him. We ask that everyone — including media, friends and others — respect our privacy. Unless you have a specific invitation from us, we respectfully ask that you not visit at this time.
“Thank you for understanding and for the friendship and love that you continue to show Sincere.”
The word is out about the need for prayer….And the prayers are going up across the city and around the county for the Page Pirates’ senior running back from this past season, #26 Sincere Davis…WFMY News 2 was reporting on their news tonight, that #26(Davis) had been shot over the weekend, and as you can see in the this post from WGHP FOX 8 News below, the news is serious for Sincere….
Join the Page Pirate family as they lift up senior Sincere Davis, who is facing very serious odds right now, but there is nothing that the power of prayer can not overcome, and there is nothing too big for God….This kid can rally and we hope and pray that he does…..
