Leeds, AL (WIAT)-Chris Davis has become known as an Auburn hero for the 109-yard touchdown return he made in the 2013 Iron Bowl to lift the Tigers to a 34-28 victory.
On Friday, he made another big return.
“God brought me out here,” said Davis. “I am just happy to be a part of this and help Trey with everything he is going through.”
At age 17, Trey Belvin was diagnosed with epilepsy. Now almost 4 years later he must undergo brain surgery in order to save his life.
“It’s really been an emotional roller coaster,” said Trey’s father Charles. “It would get better and worse and then all of a sudden he took a turn for the worst several weeks ago. Now we are to the point that the brain surgery is not an option. We have to do it.”
With over $10,000 to raise, the Collegiate Warehouse at Grand River hosted a Chris Davis autograph signing to help with the medical expenses.
“This means a lot to me and my family to help us with the expenses of driving up there,” said Trey. “We have to go to Cleveland and it really means a lot.”
“I know you hear Auburn family all the time but it’s true,” said Charles. “The Auburn fans are just strong for each other.”
