CHARLESTON, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - The Dorchester County high school football standout killed in a shooting earlier this month on the University of Virginia campus was laid to rest Wednesday morning.

A celebration of life was held at Mount Moriah Baptist Church in North Charleston, with an extremely large turnout of people to pay their respects to Davis.

Davis was an all-star football player at Woodland High School who went on to rank as one of the top receivers in the country at UVA.
