WILL & MORGAN DAVIS
WILL: I’ve been playing sports since I could walk and love competition and pushing personal limits. Your body is capable of way more than you think, you just have to push past what your mind allows. Football was my main sport and baseball was something to do during the off season. I played through high school and was lucky enough to play college football for Birmingham Southern. I started to volunteer at the local fire department and enjoyed the fire service and enrolled in Recruit and EMT school.Currently I am a Fire Fighter/EMT for Talladega Fire Department. I walked through the door at CrossFit Chelsea at the end of 2014 and haven’t looked back since. I became a coach about 6 months after I joined and love helping and coaching people to reach their goals.
