"A Winter All-Scholastics selection last year as a member of his school’s basketball team, Giwa “has quietly turned himself into a solid football player in just two short years,” said Davies head coach Henry Cabral.
Giwa is a two-time All-Division and All-Academic selection who helped the Patriots return to the Division IV semifinals and post a 7-3 mark that was their best record in their four-year existence. He played multiple positions, especially at defensive end, as Giwa recorded 52 tackles, 14 sacks, and three fumble recoveries, and as a hybrid running back, as he ran for 378 yards and three touchdowns.
In the classroom, Giwa, who is a Pawtucket resident and studying Automotive Careers, is ranked in the top 15 percent of his class. His GPA is 3.79, and this past quarter, he sported a GPA of 3.89.
A First-Team All-Division selection, Cano had an outstanding season in helping the Patriots, which went winless in their inaugural season in 2019 and totaled just five wins over the next two seasons, notch their first winning record.
Thanks to a four-match win streak midway through the season, Davies went 8-6 in Division IV action, and in the playoffs, Cano helped the Patriots reach the semifinals by netting a 3-0 victory over Shea in the quarters.
Cano, who is a Pawtucket resident, did a little of everything for the Patriots this year, as she contributed 48 kills and 53 service aces. And off the court, she was just as exceptional: Cano boasts a 3.62 GPA and is studying Bio-Manufacturing."
