Vernon Davis went back home to Washington, D.C., today and gave a talk to young football players about setting goals for themselves. And Davis told them that he’s setting the bar very high when making his own goals.
According to WUSA, Davis said that his goal is to become the best tight end in football history. And he says that’s a goal he’s confident he’s going to reach.
“I will be the best tight end to ever play this game. I have a vision,” Davis said.
Asked afterward how he plans to go about achieving that vision, Davis said that it’s all about hard work and having a plan.
“Anything is possible,” Davis said. “I say that because . . . what can happen? If I don’t make it, then I don’t make it. It’s as simple as that. Ain’t nothing nobody can do, ain’t nothing nobody can say. But if I do? Then I spoke it into existence.”
The last time we heard from Davis, he was saying that he strongly believes the 49ers should be Super Bowl favorites. Now he says he believes he’ll go down in history as the greatest ever to play his position. Nobody can accuse Davis of lacking confidence.
