I had the privilege of meeting this gorgeous young lady, Davis Merrill, one of the most dedicated seniors I have ever met!! Davis is a senior at Goreville High School. She is an absolute beast! Not only is she drop dead gorgeous but she is a trainer at CrossFit RSP and has competed all the way down in Texas with CrossFit from right here in Southern Illinois.
