Ernest Davis was born in New Salem, Pennsylvania on December 14, 1939 and spent the early years of his life near the Pittsburgh area. Davis lived with his grandparents until the age of 12 when he moved to Elmira, New York with his mother and stepfather. Davis was an exceptional athlete from an early age, excelling at multiple sports. He honed his athletic abilities playing in the Small Fry youth football league and engaging in athletics at the local community center (the Neighborhood House, known as the “Nabe”).

Davis continued his football career in high school becoming Elmira’s player of the year and an All-American in both his Junior and Senior years. Upon graduating from Elmira Free Academy, Davis enrolled at Syracuse University and took his talents to the national stage. The rest, as they say, is history, with Davis becoming one of the most revered figures in football history.

Celebrating the early years of Davis' career in Elmira, offered here is Davis' actual locker, used by the future legend during his high school playing days. This locker measures approximately 6-feet tall and 15 inches in width and depth. As would be expected for an 70+ year old locker, it shows aging but stands in great condition. The inside of the locker has writing which states "Ernie was here '55", possibly written by Davis himself. Letter of Provenance accompanying. A superb piece of early Ernie Davis football history!

Please note that due to the size and weight of this item that freight shipping will be required.

Ernie Davis Personally Used Locker from His High School Football Days!
