Friends and family of Maddy Davidson describe her as "an inspiration and a joy to watch while she competes." The 20-year-old participates in aquatics and athletics in the Heart of East Texas area. A SOTX athlete since 2010, Davidson is also a star when she's not running relays or backstroking. Last summer, she co-starred in the movie Love Land as "Katie".  She was also acknowledged at a Night of Superstars in Grapevine where she received an award. Davidson even got to walk the red carpet and sign autographs at the event.  In her spare time, she spends time helping out with several activities at her church.
