He was the "Mr. Outside" of the famed Davis-Blanchard duo. Glenn scored 59 touchdowns in his career and gained an amazing 4,129 yards from rushing and passing for the Black Knights. He holds the major college record for most yards gained per play in one season, 11.7. He averaged 58 minutes a game against a tough schedule. No major collegian ever approached his remarkable career average of almost one TD every nine plays. Serving in the Army in Korea until 1950, Davis resigned his commission to join the Los Angeles Rams and played on two championship teams. Injuries cut his career short, however he turned to public relations and promotions for the Los Angeles Times special events department. While at the Times, Davis' primary goal was to raise money for youth activities. He later retired to La Quinta, California and married the late Alan Ameche's widow, Yvonne on July 12th 1996. Glenn Davis passed away in March of 2005.
Glenn was elected to the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame in 1961.
