When he’s not in the weight room, Jim Davis can be found writing poetry. 

Davis, strength and conditioning coordinator at New Trier High School (his alma mater), played football in Europe after a collegiate career at Knox College — but he’s also an accomplished poet. While at Knox, he majored in studio art with a painting focus and a minor in sports administration. Now, while working at New Trier, he’s wrapping up a thesis for his MFA from Northwestern University.
