Bridgton Academy coach Whit Lesure says McDonald "is well-suited to the up-tempo style that GW plays." "Montrell is a lefty with tremendous skills," Hobbs said. "He can play multiple positions because of his ability to handle the ball and create plays not only for himself but for his teammates. He is really competitive and will be one of the best athletes to ever play at this school."
