A. George Davis

Potsdam

A George Davis is St. Lawrence County native who was there for one of the proudest moments in American Sports History. In 1980, tensions were high between The United States of America and Russia. Where was the best place to battle this out? The hockey rink. Davis was the official timekeeper as The USA team unexpectedly beat The Russian's for the gold; a moment that spread the nation with pride. A hockey fan through and through, this dean of students from Clarkson, kept time for their team as well. Now retired, he looks back at these exciting moments, which were turned into the movie Miracle, like it was just yesterday.
