Seth is a first year student at Sartell High School. He moved from Saratoga Springs, Utah, in late June of 2023. He previously attended Westlake High School and played soccer at the varsity level.

Seth was greeted at Sartell High School by many of the members of the Boys’ Soccer team where they voiced their excitement for him to join the team. He attended captains’ practice during the majority of the summer and was on the starting roster for the first game of the high school season.

Davidson stated, “It was fun joining a new team and being around new people, and I made a lot of new friends through it.”

In an interview with Davidson, he said, “I clicked immediately with many of my junior teammates and would still consider them some of them my closest friends at Sartell.”

Seth also has similar expectations for his senior season on the soccer team and thinks that they will have a great season.

He will be one of four captains for the Sabres 2024-2025 season along with Drew McClellan, Calvin Braegelmann, and Peyton Moe. 

The Sabres hope to have another great season.

Assistant coach Caleb Forberg, expressed, “[I] expect nothing less from the upcoming group of individuals.”

Forberg explains that the Sabres lost 11 seniors this year. 

We have a lot of talent coming from the younger group of kids, and they are definitely willing to step up to the challenge.
