Davis was a tough hard nosed player that played the game with intensity and heart. Davis had a blue collar attitude that epitomized the Illini team. Davis played special teams and did the "dirty" work between the tackles. He was an outstanding blocker and utilized in the passing game because of his pass catching ability. Davis was an all-around back that was the ultimate team player. He played the game with great emotion and played every down with his best effort.
Davis became an undrafted free agent in 2004 and played in the NFL from 2004-2010 winning a Super Bowl with the Pittsburgh Steelers in their victory over the Arizona Cardinals in Tampa Bay.
Earnest Byner grew up in Milledgeville, Georgia where today he is a hometown hero to many. He was raised by his grandmother, a teacher who gave him the extraordinary example of teaching. It is this gift that has been engrained in Byner to always go “above and beyond” to be more than a player and more than a coach to teach and help others. He believes his teachings are simple, God to man, and man to man with a genuine care for the guys. He artfully applies his grandmother’s teachings to listen, hear, watch, and do, and has done this as a player and a coach with a lot of passion.
Byner attended East Carolina University (1980-1983) where he played fullback. He had an outstanding college career as he gained 2,049 yards on 378 carries. Byner was inducted into the East Carolina Hall of Fame in 1998.
Byner was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the tenth round of the 1984 NFL Draft. He played for the Browns (1984–1988; 1994–1995), Washington Redskins (1989–1993) and the Baltimore Ravens (1996–1997) throughout his career. He finished his 14-year NFL career ranked 16th on the NFL’s all-time rushing list with 8,261 yards on 2,095 carries, with 56 touchdowns. He also caught 512 passes for 4,605 yards and 15 touchdowns, returned 33 kickoffs for 576 yards, and scored a touchdown on a recovered fumble, totaling 13,442 all-purpose yards and 72 career scores. Byner left the NFL finishing as one of the top 50 all-time leaders in rushing attempts, rushing touchdowns, and total yards.
Byner is a two-time Pro-Bowler (1990 & 1991)
