LOCAL BRIEF: DeKalb's McDavid wins sportsmanship award

DeKalb native and Knox College senior defensive end Maurice McDavid  has been named the male winner of the 2009 Midwest Conference Sportsmanship award. Every year the MWC presents the Sportsmanship award to one male and one female student athlete who exemplify what it truly means to be a “good sport”, players who encourage their teammates and can usually be heard shouting encouragements and cheering on fellow teammates.
   
In three seasons, Knox College’s Maurice McDavid has never been flagged for a penalty and is coming off a season in which he was second in tackles amongst Prairie Fire defensive linemen.
   
Away from the football field, McDavid – an ordained minister – has participated in a reading program with local elementary school students. He is a founding member of the Gentlemen of Quality fraternity chapter, an organization that is focused on brotherhood, multiculturalism, academics and community service. McDavid is also a Knox College student ambassador, officer for ABLE (Allied Blacks for Liberty and Equality) and served as the KC SAAC football representative until studying abroad this winter.
