We first met him four years ago when he was 13. Devin Davis had just won his first national award for his "Knock Your Socks Off Mango Delight."

"I wanna open my own restaurant and then hopefully I'd like to have my own cooking TV show," said Devin.
The hardware is on his side. His house is filled with trophies and first place ribbons. Devin's drilled the competition dozens of times in local, state, and national cook-offs.
