After winning two High School state championships at LSU Laboratory School in Baton Rouge, LA, Glen starred at Louisiana State University (LSU). Glen had a tremendous start to his college career and was named the SEC’s freshman of the year in 2005. In 2006, Glen cemented his place in LSU history, leading LSU to the Final Four, earning all-region honors for his play in the NCAA Tournament.
Davis was named 2006 SEC Player of the year after leading the league in both scoring (18.6) and rebounding (9.7). In 2007, Glen added first-team All- SEC to his list of accomplishments, spurring him to declare for the NBA draft.
In 2007, Glen was drafted as the 35th pick by the Seattle Supersonics, who immediately traded him to the Boston Celtics as part of the Ray Allen trade. He won a championship in his rookie season with the Boston Celtics in 2007-2008.
After four prosperous years in Boston, Glen was acquired by the Orlando Magic and started the next chapter in his professional career on December 25, 2011.
Big Baby’s future is bright. His success on the court has brought him significant exposure and notoriety, but his commitment to helping others is what clearly drives him.
Growing up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in a single-parent household with five other family members had an indelible effect on Glen. As he likes to explain it, “He was one of the lucky ones”, having had several helping hands along the way to guide
him and keep him on the right path. It is for this reason, whether he’s encouraging a young person to read through his Booking It With Baby Literacy Campaign or promoting healthy eating through his partnership with the Food Project Boston, Glen Big Baby Davis strongly believes in and demonstrates of whom much is given, much is expected.
