Last weekend, Notre Dame unfortunately announced that wide receiver Avery Davis suffered a torn ACL in his right knee.
It was a blow for the player who suffered a torn ACL in his left knee last November.
Davis, the sixth-year senior with 862 career-gaining yards and eight touchdowns, shared a heartfelt letter on Twitter this Friday.
Even though Davis has faced so many adversities over the past eight months,
He is doing his best to look at his time at Notre Dame in a positive light.
"I worked my ass off day after day and got rolling with every punch thrown at me.
Resilience was something that ingrained in me, and eventually I got better at taking myself back.
I would never have imagined that my time in this school would have gone the way it did, let it end the way it did.
My final moments in sport and practice as a Notre Dame football player ended in ACL tears," Davis wrote.
"As bad as it is, the hardest part about all of this is the lack of closure from it.
The question of 'why' runs in my mind 24/7 but I will not let myself fall prey to it.
I know that with time, everything will make sense and I do my best to find peace in that. Although I didn't want to end it by any means,
I am so grateful for this visit and the years I spent here at Notre Dame. I can honestly say that I gave my all to this program.
I have created memories and moments that will stay with me and hopefully the lore of Notre Dame forever. Thank you and love three."
Notre Dame head coach Marcus Freeman responded to Davis' letter by tweeting, "A Notre Dame man."
Offensive coordinator Tommy Rees had a similar reaction, commenting on "Captain".
Of course, Davis didn't want to spend the 2022 season watching from the sidelines.
That being said, he is most likely accompanied by his companions for every step of the journey.
