Kevon Davenport has earned a spot on the USA World Team to compete as a cadet in the Pan Am Games in Argentina from July 3rd thru 10th. Kevon earned this spot by having a stellar performance at the UWW World Team Trials in Akron, Ohio. Kevon is the reigning 2016 and 2017 MHSAA Division 1 Wrestling State Champion at 119lbs and 130lbs respectively. His team, Detroit Catholic Central would tie their own record of 5 Individual State Champions on this day and the Shamrocks also won the 2017 Team Championship.

Kevon has showed a high level of dedication, commitment and sacrifice along the way to which we are proud of his accomplishments. To God Be The Glory

The purpose of this letter is to identify this young man as an official member of "The World Team" and “Team Michigan” for the summer of 2017 and attest to the fact that funds raised will go directly towards his expenses. The total cost for this year’s Pan Am Games, Dual and Individual competition combined will be in the neighborhood of $5000.00. This includes registration, gear, transportation, camps/training, housing, food and coaching. Fundraising for this event is extremely important so that this young man may have the opportunity to represent himself, his community, his state and his country on the national stage.
