Tattnall County assistant men’s basketball coach Quaysean Davis has been selected as the new men’s head basketball coach for the 2022 season, announced on March 28.
Davis will take over for longtime warrior legend Doug Hassol, who retired at seasons end after 32 years on the warrior sideline.
Davis is a 2011 graduate of Tattnall County High School (TCHS) where he was a two-sport star in football and basketball.
“This is a surreal moment for me. Those who know me understand what this moment means to me. When I was in seventh grade, it was my dream to be a basketball player and coach. Looking back, I never thought I’d actually achieve that, but the amount of support from my family has made this possible,” Davis said. “My advice for anyone chasing a dream - believe in yourself, but you have to put in the work to achieve that. If you believed in me thank you! I used to dream for this… now it’s my reality.”
As the quarterback of the 2010 Battle Creek Warrior football team, he helped capture Tattnall’s only region title in football. The warriors advanced to the second round of the state tournament in his senior year and lost to Thomasville.
Davis was named as the region Player of the Year along with all-state honors under Coach Jeff Kaiser.
He also played three seasons under Coach Hassol as the point guard for the warriors. Davis directed the warriors to the region championship and sweet 16 round of the state playoffs. He averaged 15.7 points per game, 5.2 assists while hitting 76 percent of his free throws as a senior. Davis was named the region 2 AA Co-Player of the Year, GACA all-state team, and a AJC all-state honorable mention.
After high school, Davis continued his playing career at Central Georgia Tech and transferred to Auburn-Montgomery University, where he played for three seasons before transferring colleges.
After graduating from Georgia Southern University in 2019 with his bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies, Davis was the head basketball coach at South Tattnall Middle School in Glennville for three years. He then assisted Hassol at TCHS for one year before achieving the honor of head coach for the warriors.
Davis is the 30-year-old son of Carla Davis and Luther Williams. He and his wife, Ali, reside in Glennville with their two children, Asher and Tatum.
