Porter also plays soccer, and he said he plans to play for the Buffs in the spring. Unlike in football, Porter said he usually plays a defensive position in soccer.
Porter said he’s enjoyed his time at MHS, making many new friends through football. His favorite class has been his “Service Learning” class, in which he and his classmates help out at other McAlester schools and do other community service projects as well.
“Working with the children, it’s the best, watching them look up to you,” Porter said. “When they finally understand something, it’s just a great feeling.”
Wanting to be a Buff pushed Porter to return to football. Now that he’s back, Porter wants his one season wearing black and gold to be a memorable one.
