Athlete of the Week: St. Paul's Golfer Will McFadden

MOBILE, Ala. - His coach once compared him to John Daly.

“I guess it comes from me getting out there and playing as smooth as I can,” said St. Paul's golfer Will McFadden. “I don’t really overthink it too much, just try to hit the ball as hard as I can and see where it ends up.”

And that aggressive way of playing has paid off.

He’s won multiple state team titles and an individual title last year. As a senior, he’s ready to add one more trophy to his collection.

“I’d say it was a solid year for us. The team played great. I’m ready for the playoffs, definitely need some improvement but we’re ready,” said Will.

Next year he’ll be taking his talents to Troy, along with fellow St. Paul’s golfer Kyle Cornelius.

“I got my buddy up there with me, so that will help me. I’ll know my roommate, we won’t know very many other people, so we’ll figure it out when we get up there,” said Will. “I can’t wait to get up there with the guys and see what college golf is all about.”
