Mo’ne Davis: Still Changing The Game
…what her presence means to her fans who are also her peers. “I never thought at the age of 13 I’d be a role model, but having young girls look up to me is pretty cool.

Now, Davis is the ankle-breaking, dime-dropping point guard for the Monarchs and still fearless as she develops into a Division I hopeful. That’s right, she plays basketball too.
Much like during her Little League run, she is the only girl on her team. She’s also the only girl in the Monarchs’ 18U league, for players 18 and under, in which she and her teammates compete against local Philly rec teams with kids two to three years older than they are.
While she focuses more on her jump shot than fanning batters with a 70 mph fastball these days, fame still follows her. But “Mo” is a typical teen: one who savors Eggo waffles (two a day), who is known to friends and Bandura as “Screen-face Davis” (a nod to her Snapchat addiction), who has a penchant for kicks (she owns more than 70 pairs, Jordan 11s being her favorites) and who won’t hesitate to debate anyone, anytime, anywhere who dares to say Kyrie Irving is not the best point guard in the NBA.
