BALTIMORE — Calvert Hall's head football coach has resigned. Donald Davis says he's leaving to pursue other opportunities.

He was the head coach of the Cardinals from 2007 through 2019 and led the players to an MLAA title in 2010 before leading them to the MLAA title game in 2011 and 2012.

Davis racked up ten turkey bowl victories, which is the most bowl wins by any Calvert Hall coach in the game's 100 year history.

Davis taught English and Physical Education at the school.

He also served as the Assistant Track Coach and the moderator for the Black Student Union.

President Brother John Kane FSC, Ed.D. shared, “I am disappointed for Calvert Hall that Donald has decided to leave, but understand his desire to pursue other options at this point in his career. Under Coach Davis' leadership our football program has been very successful including many Turkey Bowl victories. Donald has also been a valued faculty member. Most important is the care and concern he has exhibited for our young men. He has been a wonderful role model exemplifying the Lasallian values we hold dear. I wish him the best of luck in this next chapter in his life.”

Davis produced NFL players – Pat Boyle ’08, Adrian Amos ’11, Trevor Williams ’12, and Lawrence Cager ‘15.

Athletic Director Lou Eckerl has a long-lasting relationship with Davis as he coached Davis in the 75th Annual Turkey Bowl. Eckerl said, “Donald always represented Calvert Hall with class. He is an awesome coach. His passion and love for his players and the game will be missed.”
