Allen Davenport is entering his eighth season with the Lady Hawks as softball assistant coach. Davenport's duties and responsibilities are on-field coaching and recruiting. In his eight seasons, Davenport has coached eight Lady Hawks toMEAC All-Conference while assisting the team to a 20-win season, back in 2009.
"My goal for the season is to make sure our athletes work together to do the right things," Davenport said. "Although I am a UMES Alum, I don't root for teams. I root for the student-athlete to do their best."
As a UMES student, Davenport lettered as a two-sport student-athlete in basketball and baseball. In 1983, Davenport's success on the hardwood earned him Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Player of the Week honors. In that same season, Davenport was also named to the 1983 MEAC All-Tournament Team.
In 1987, Davenport graduated from UMES. In 2008, Davenport was inducted into the UMES Hall of Fame.
