Charlie Smith High's main marksman, Bebeto McDonald, is ready to help his school sweep this year's schoolboy football titles after they topped Group B of the ISSA/LIME Manning Cup.

McDonald netted seven times from seven matches as Charlie Smith had five wins and two draws in the preliminary round.

Now in the third Manning Cup season the 19 year-old is hungry for success.

"I want to be the top scorer in the Manning Cup and win it along with the LIME Super Cup. I really enjoy playing and seeing my team win," McDonald said.

The Jones Town native, who has scored 17 goals over the three seasons, is a favourite of the fans at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex and is looking forward to representing his community when he leaves school.

"I want to play for Arnett Gardens and have a great football career," he said. He is also hoping to get a football scholarship to an overseas college.

The former John Mills Primary and Junior High student describes himself as a lover of all sports and a friendly person. He is also a big fan of dancehall music and he watches action movies in his spare time.

Among his other hobbies are playing video games and eating his favourite food, ackee and saltfish, prepared by his mother, Trixie Dinan.
