Emanuel Davis, the former Manteo High School football standout, announced his retirement after a six year career in the Canadian Football League.

According to the CFL, Davis said in a statement, “I’m honored to have been a part of such a wonderful organization and community. To my teammates, managers and coaches, thank you for the lifelong memories and friendships. To my parents, wife, family and friends, thank you for the continuous support, encouragement and inspiration.”

The Manteo native was named a CFL All-Star in 2015 and an East Division All-Star twice with the Tiger-Cats in 2015 and 2016. He won the 106th Grey Cup as a member of the Stampeders in 2018.
