Nationally known as one of the best base tweakers out there

I’m nominating Jim Davis because of not only the above accolades but because he also has been a great mentor to many in this hobby, including myself. He is one of the most enthusiastic people in this hobby. He taught many how to play including his two daughters Shyenne (who won 2 Miggle championships) and Jaya (who made it to the Miggle championship game her first year). He has befriended many around the country while keeping the spirit of EF alive in the Great Lakes area.

Jim Davis is the very essence of the MFCA and electric football. He is not only one of the greatest tweakers of all time, but his game play is legendary and his persona towards the game is a great asset to the hobby. I met him at the first Miggle Convention, and ever since then he has always showed a high level of sportsmanship, fellowship and class towards other coaches and the hobby. You can ask many coaches…a tourney without Jim Davis is one without a lively person, who brings joy to the room and livelyness. I hope the MFCA Hall of Fame committee considers Jim Davis for this award, because of his dedication as a coach and his dedication to helping new coaches. Bottom line…he has not been one to win all the big tourneys like perhaps a Adrian Baxter or Ron Bell, but has done more for the “art” of coaching, by helping others to be better coaches.

Difficult to put in one paragraph why Jim is a Hall of Famer. He’s Mister Miniature Football… Certainly a master tweaker over many, many years. His Hulk bases are well known, and he is an excellent coach. His approach to the game is as much like a real coach as you could have in a hobby. He’s a proven winner, capturing the Miggle ring last year and is always in the Great Lakes Playoffs. He finished second two years ago and is in the G.L. Super bowl this year. I believe he won a GL. championship in year one or two, and I believe he has also won Buzz Ball Tournament. I think he has been to every Miggle convention, our regional convention, Buzz Ball, Sea Wall Brawl and played in the DFW in Texas. He a big guy with a heart of gold, he loves the hobby, he loves the coaches. He been a great supporter of the MFCA as well on the chat board and its functions. It would not even be the same hobby with this coach! I hope I am the fifth person to nominate him… really a no brainer in my book that Jimmy deserves to be in the HOF.
And he is a loving father and a great husband.
