The story of Charlie Davies is like a movie script, or at least it seems like it’s headed that way with each new step Davies takes in his journey back from the tragic accident. It’s an amazing tale of dedication and will, just the desire Davies has to play again at the highest level is incredible.
If you’re someone who has a serious injury or even someone who was cut by a team you expected to make, use Davies story as an example of someone who doesn’t give up but fights back and strives for his dreams. I don’t think anyone will be surprised when #9 suits up for the United States national team again very soon.
Watch Charlie Davies’ amazing return continue on Thursday when DC United hosts the New York Red Bulls at 8 PM ET on ESPN2 and ESPN3.com. Davies says that Thierry Henry, who of course plays for the New York Red Bulls now, was a boyhood hero of his.
