Kevonce McDonald does a little bit of everything for Gautier High. In addition to taking some snaps on offense behind center and at wide out, McDonald patrols the secondary as the team's top defensive back. Kevonce, a good student, is putting his best foot forward this spring and summer to show college coaches just what he is capable of in hopes of earning a scholarship option or two.

"I am getting mail from Mississippi State and Auburn," said McDonald. "I am going to some football combines pretty soon and I am going to Junior day at Mississippi State."

The trip to Starkville will be a return visit for the Gulf Coast standout who reports he likes what he has seen from the Bulldogs.

"I went to their spring game and I really liked it up there," said the 5-9, 158 pounder. "It seems like a really good place.

"I really like how they did this past year. They seem to be going in the right direction."

McDonald recorded 46 total tackles from the defensive backfield in 2010. His size may prevent him playing safety on the college level, but Kevonce is open to other possibilities.

"I would really like to play safety because I enjoy it, but I can make the transition to corner if I need to," said the talented junior. "I have been playing safety since my tenth grade year, so I feel real comfortable playing it."

Kevonce looks to prove his value as a prospect this fall against a stronger district schedule than a season ago.

"We had some new teams come in our district, so we're going to have a harder schedule than we have been having," said McDonald. "That's fine with me because it will make us better.

"We are going to be a younger team this year, but some guys are going to have to step up and make plays.

"We lost some good players, but we are not depending on just on person to do everything for us. We are going to have to score points on offense as a team and get stops on defense as a team.

"I am excited about the season."
