From the Register-Mail:
Maurice McDavid stood out from the rest of those who lined up for free chilli, cornbread and countless other foodstuffs during Thursdayâ€™s free community dinner inside the LULAC building on Second Street. He didnâ€™t stand out because he is Division III football big. Or because he was the only black man â€” other than Lomac Payton â€” in a crowd of almost 100.
The 22-year-old Knox College senior projected ease. Confidence. He smiled and extended a hand to strangers. He sat and spoke with a few high school students. He conversed with a woman in Spanish.
One couldnâ€™t help but want to meet the magnet. And after that meeting, one canâ€™t help but pray he stays in this community.
