FROM HIPPENHAMMER'S HEAD COACH KURT TIPPMAN
"Mac is an athletic and extremely versatile athlete at wide receiver. He is very refined at the skills and nuances of the position - which helps in his ability to get open as either an outside or inside receiver. He is just as successful as a return guy in the punt and kickoff special teams. His work ethic separates him from other elite athletes and his desire to improve has been just as impressive as his outstanding play on the field. Mac is in a category with Rod Woodson and Vaughn Dunbar as former Snider football players and their speed and ability to make plays on the high school football field."
