Olympic High School place-kicker Tyler McMahan will play his college football at Mississippi State.
In an e-mail message Sunday night, Olympic coach Barry Shuford reported that McMahan will sign with the Bulldogs. McMahan once had a string of 57 consecutive extra points made, third-best in North Carolina High School Athletic Association history.
He also considered Jackson State.
Another former Olympic player, wide receiver Anthony Henderson, has committed to West Virginia Tech, an NAIA school. He had 47 catches – 12 for touchdowns – this season.
