"I got a chance to go in the special teams and running backs meetings. I also watched the team practice. From what I saw, I could start right now at several positions. I feel that I'm really high on their list, but they say they want to work me out in camp before they offer."
Last year, McKenzie led his team to a perfect 15-0 season. His head coach at Trinity Episcopal, David King, gave a glowing review of his star player.
"Tip is what happens when you combine a great athlete with a great work ethic," said King. "He has God-given speed and explosiveness to go along with a tremendous work ethic. He has great hands and vision and can quickly turn around a game.
"I've been very fortunate to have some great athletes here, but Tip is different - his raw burst is something we haven't seen before. No one is going to outwork him. I know that whenever he gets to college, he won't have a teammate who works harder than he does."
