Big Dawg: Malcolm King

Mississippi State hosted close to 175 college football hopefuls this past weekend for the annual Big Dawg camp. Several players were looking to make an impression and take another step towards a scholarship offer from the Bulldogs. One such prospect was Malcolm King of East Coweta High School (GA).

"It was a good experience and a lot of hard work," King said. "There were a lot of competitors and everybody did pretty good."

King reports that the time he spent with the Mississippi State coaching staff was both educational and enjoyable.

"I learned a lot of things that I hadn't been taught," King said. "It's something I can take back to my school to my coaches and my teammates."

King has been on the road some this summer looking to elevate his stock as a college football prospect. To date, offer number one has remained elusive.

"So far, I just have schools looking at me," King said. "I don't have any offers yet, but I am hoping that all changes during the season."

East Coweta won eight games a year ago. King expects the team to build on those successes this fall.

"Our team is looking pretty good so far," King shared. "I believe we're going to be a better team this year and I think we have a chance to get to the Georgia Dome. I think we might be able to win the state championship if everybody keeps working hard."
