Boyd-Buchanan’s head football coach, Grant Reynolds, commented on Malik’s outstanding qualities as a player saying, “...his work ethic...he was always early to practice and always stayed late. He has an incredible drive to succeed.” Coach Reynolds reflected on Malik’s personal qualities, “He is fun to be around, has a good attitude, and his teammates all really like him.”

 

Malik was also given an offer from Austin Peay State University. Malik said he chose Tusculum because he liked the atmosphere and the camaraderie there. Malik and his family were extremely excited today about his future at Tusculum College. But, Malik has great respect for the foundation he gained at Boyd-Buchanan. Malik said, “Boyd-Buchanan School has helped me to mature. It has a great Christian environment, and it is a family. Coach Reynolds pushed me and taught me to respect the game and to respect myself.”

After signing, Malik told his teammates, friends, and family, “I’ll always call myself a Buccaneer.”
