At 5-10 160 pounds Steven Mackey is certainly not the biggest guy on the field, but it only takes a few minutes of watching his game video to realize that Mackey is all about being physical. Steven plays cornerback and running back for Lake Howell High School in Winter Park Florida.
Last season Steven recorded 74 tackles, three fumble recoveries, and had 16 deflected passes. Not only will Mackey lay a lick on you, but he shows quick feet and impressive recovery speed.
When asked about his Southern Miss offer Mackey had this to say, "When coach Losey made me the offer it really felt good. I got goosebumps when it happened."
"I haven't visited Southern Miss yes but hopefully in the future I can," he added. "They saw my film and really liked what I had to offer, and they made me the offer. I can't wait to learn more about the school."
Steven went on to talk about the strengths of his game. " I have good cover skills and I am always looking to make a big hit,"
Mackey went on to tell GoldenEaglePride.com that he is being recruited as a corner and plans to make a visit with his family this summer. Southern Miss is Mackey's second offer. His first came from UMass.
It is interesting to see that Erik Losey is yet another Southern Miss coach that is working the state of Florida.
