Malcolm was a team captain and the MVP at Orchard Lake St. Mary’s Prep. "Every coach dreams of having a scholar player like Malcolm who plays with determination and passion on every down. He is a very powerful running back who gets the tough yards on offense, an excellent pass rusher and a deluxe hitter as a linebacker on defense," said St. Mary’s head coach George Porritt. He was a two-way starter on both offense and defense for two consecutive years. As a senior running back he scored 16 TDs, rushed for over 1045 yards, averaged 5.9 yards per carry and 104 yards per game. As a linebacker he recorded 110 tackles, caused 4 fumbles, recovered 3 fumbles, and had 1 interception and 10 quarterback sacks. He received an invitation to play in the U.S. Army All American Bowl Game in January at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Malcolm led his team in rushing yards per carry, and TD’s, and tied for tackles and QB sacks. He received over 10 Division 1-A scholarship offers.

 

Malcolm enjoyed four years of French and playing the saxophone in the band, where he earned the French Student-of-the-Year Award and was the lead saxophone player. He also played three years of basketball and track and won three varsity letters in each sport. Malcolm was a member of the Catholic League Basketball Championship Team. Malcolm is a scholar athlete and carried a 3.8 gpa.

 

Malcolm thanked his parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends for their encouragement and support throughout his football career. He especially thanked his Dad for helping the St. Mary’s captains and position leaders to come together as one team. Appreciation and gratitude were also extended to Jon "Rip" Holmes for making him believe in himself and training him like a professional to get stronger, faster and quicker. Malcolm thanked Coaches Porritt, Janosk, Clouse and all the others for their support and guidance both on and off the field. Finally, he thanked his St. Mary’s Football teammates, Dean of Academics Len Karschnia, Headmaster James Glowacki, St. Mazy’s Boosters, fans and his mom for "their awesome support of our team."
