The junior safety was ultra-impressive last weekend in leading Mooney to their 8th state title, when they defeated Springfield Shawnee 21-14 to win the Division-III championship.
Much like he did two weeks earlier in a tight win over Steubenville, McWilson had a key interception against Shawnee that changed the momentum and helped give Mooney the state title.
"On that interception, I just read the play and broke on the football," McWilson stated. "Once I had the ball, I just tried to score and put us in position to go up two touchdowns. When the ball is in the air, I just feel like it belongs to me."
"I played both ways today and that's why we work so hard on conditioning at Mooney," he continued. "We will take a little break here and then get right back at it in the weight room, and trying to repeat as champions."
"I'm hoping this brings some more interest, but I'm not worried about it just yet," he explained. "I've got another year to go to impress the college coaches, and this playoff film should be really good for me."
"My main concern was winning a state title for the seniors," he stressed. "I want to be known as a guy that looks to help his team win, and when you play for Mooney that's always the goal."
