Going by J Smoove on twitter, Mr. Mackey’s style of play is just that….very smooth, precise and accurate, each step, each move calculated. Its this skillset that helps him to be such a good cover corner, is a player that you don’t want to face if you are a wide receiver. Mackey is a shut down type corner. He is one of those special talents that does not come around very often and Charles Page High School reaps the benefits for his great play. The quick footed CB can tackle and has excellent coverage ability.
