That's not the case with Trinity Episcopal (Natchez, MS) tight end Trae McKenzie. The 6 foot 2 225 pound McKenzie has proven on the gridiron that he is a player that can make his own way and make it big.

McKenzie isn't the kind of player that will rest on past success. He is working hard to make sure that he is one of the best players in the Magnolia State.

"I am a dual threat tight end. I can catch the ball very well. I had 8 touchdowns last season. I love to stretch the field and have a linebacker try to cover me. I prefer that part of the game. But I am not afraid to get in the trenches and mix it up either. I can hold my own in blocking. I can do both equally well."

McKenzie and his Trinity teammates have plan's to win a state championship this season. McKenzie is working to make sure that he leaves a winner.

"I think we are going to go undefeated and win it all this year. We are working on throwing the ball a lot more this season. That's fine with me. I have developed a very good relationship with our quarterback. He is my best friend. That will help our chemistry on the field."

Several school's have made contact with McKenzie and let him know that they want him to play for them in the future.
BR> "I have heard from UL, Southern Miss, Vanderbilt, Louisiana Tech, Grambling, and ULM. I went to UL's camp last year and will go back this year. I like the fact that they run the spread. I like Mississippi State for that reason as well. I will be going to their junior day as well. I want to go to a school with a good engineering program."
