EDITORIAL >> Vote for McDonald

Clinton McDonald, former Red Devil and current lineman for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is up for a spot in the Pro Bowl game and needs the support of his hometown.

Players are selected based on fan votes.

He had a great year last season as a member of the Super Bowl champs, the Seattle Seahawks, and he’s having another strong year this season with Tampa Bay.

But besides his football prowess, he has been a strong supporter of local schools. He’s visited many over the past year to talk about leadership, character and bullying. He has donated funds to various projects. Just last week, he donated money to Warren Dupree Elementary, his old school, so that families will have food for the holidays.
