Magna Vista’s Davis commits to RCC

May 6, 2024

MARTINSVILLE, Va. – Magna Vista High School senior Preston Davis has committed to continue his baseball career at Rockingham Community College this fall.

Rockingham is an NJCAA Division III school in Wentworth, N.C. The Eagles compete in Region 10.

Davis said after getting a call from coaches and taking a visit, Rockingham “felt like the true fit for me.”

“The coaching staff was amazing and I just loved the way the campus looked… that’s why I made my decision to go to Rockingham,” he added.

Playing college baseball was always the dream for Davis, who grew up around sports. His parents, Jason and Tonya Davis, are the president and director of marketing for the Martinsville Mustangs.

“Being a part of the Mustang organization and hosting players has always been like getting to really see what the college game is like,” Davis said. “That’s what I really wanted to do. Now I’m going to fill out my dream and take it to the next step, and that’s what I’m really looking forward to.”

Davis is a catcher for the Warriors. He was an honorable mention All-Region 3D selection as a junior last spring.

He’ll continue catching in college.

“I’ve always loved catching,” he said. “It feels like I’m always involved in every single pitch, and that’s why I like catching so much.”

The Warriors are having their best season under Coach Sam Suite, currently sitting 16-1, and unbeaten in Piedmont District play with one week of the regular season remaining.

Davis said he was putting pressure on himself early this spring before making his college commitment. Now that he’s signed, he’s excited to focus solely on the Warriors and hopefully making a long postseason run.

“Now we’re just having fun, just playing baseball, just having a good time,” Davis said. “And it’s so much fun with those guys. I’ll never get to play with those guys ever again. Our goal is to take it all the way, and that’s what we’re going to do, and I’m looking forward to it.

“I think I’m going to take a lot from Magna Vista, from the four years I’ve been here. I wouldn’t be here without Magna Vista baseball, without my coaches. It’s meant a lot to represent that and wear it across my chest. I’m going to do that when I go to Rockingham, represent Rockingham County.”
