Joining a small group of local athletes, McDonald was voted Athlete of the Week by the community based on his accomplishments over the weekend and how he represented Baldwin County as a whole.
“I’m very happy. I was really happy,” he said. “I didn’t even know that knew that many people. I love the people in Milledgeville.”
McDonald suggests that people in the community will not be let down, as he plans to continue competing, as well as representing GMC Prep and Baldwin County at a high level.
“People supporting me and cheering me on, that means a lot to me,” he said. “I’m not just somebody in the shadows. I’m proof that if you get behind me, I’ll give you results.”
