2016 All Stars – East Team
High School, Region: Wayne Memorial, 12
High School Coach: Donald Anderson
College: Central Methodist University, Fayette, MO
Malik started playing football at age seven when he lived in Inkster. He played for the Inkster Raiders and was an offensive guard for his first year and a half. Since then, he’s “been a hybrid playing many positions.” When he got to the varsity team, though, he was “limited” to running back, wide receiver, kicker, and defensive back. Malik was named 1st team All-Conference as a senior, and received MVP recognition for his play for Wayne Memorial and on his travel team “1Nation”. He said, “Although I have the least experience at defensive back, I love to compete and look forward to the challenge in the all star game”.
Malik also ran track three years at WMHS. He qualified for regionals as a freshman, sophomore and junior, but did not to run as a senior due to a leg injury. Also a member of Wayne Memorial’s Champions program, Malik served as a scholar/mentor.
Malik said, “I am my school’s first all star and have many who I thank for this privilege. I thank my travel team head coach, Coach Mckinney, for helping me through the process. I thank my head Coach, Coach Andrson (“D-Why”), for all of his support. He constantly networked for me and checked-up on me. I couldn’t have asked for a better head coach. I thank both of my parents, Coach Ramsey, and my entire family. Finally, I thank my classmates, Mrs. Vaughn, Mrs. Gusty, Mrs. Smelcer, Mrs. Sullivan, Mr. Deluca, and everyone else.”
