Multiple Teams · NFL RB Mack Brown


Return of the Mack

By Defensive End Demarque Johnson (Class of 2018)

Mack Brown, the running back for the redskins, visited his Alma Mater, ML King High School. He came here to talk to the MLK football team. When meeting with us, he was letting us know about how he worked hard to get where he’s at in life. Such as working his way up from starting in high school to not getting rotation in college. But when he was cut from the first practice squad. He tried out for the Redskins and made the team. Then work his way to be starting for the next coming season. So the whole point is don’t give up because you failed the first time. Still keep pushing into you get where you trying to get in life.

The ML King Girls get their third win of the season, by beating Cross Keys.  The game was tight in the first half.  But after halftime the ML King Full Court press picked up the pressure, and the Lady Lions pulled away with the victory.  Jr. Azhana Maxwell Showed a lot of heart and leadership by playing with a hand injury.

Multiple Teams · Girls Beat Mt. Zion


Saturday our ML King Girls played Mt. Zion. The final score was 58-48. Defensively our girls utilized both man and zone schemes. Kimberly Redding lead by example, by showing a lot of hustle. Azhana Maxwell is their leading scorer. She averages 20 ppg, 5 boards, and 4 steals. Azhana is a complete player. Coach Wilson says the team needs to work on their offensive and defensive assignments if they want to make the state playoffs. Region 4-6A is one of the most competitive in the state of Georgia. The Region playoffs in February should be Amazing.
