Jamaica College's (JC) Donovan Dawkins is considered a versatile football player who is very good in both defence and attack.

He has only played in the last three games for his school in the current season. The 16-year-old was unavailable because of national Under-17 duties, and his experience as a national player could help JC in defending the Manning Cup title.

"Donovan Dawkins is a versatile player who rotates between defence and forward. He is exposed to international football. He can play any role in the interest of the team," says JC's assistant coach, Delroy Brown.

"He is a very bustling player with a good level of confidence. Donovan has only played in three games and scored once and will figure in the game against Camperdown on Saturday," Brown added.

Dawkins is certainly among the players to watch for JC in their quest for a berth in the 2014 ISSA/LIME Manning Cup final.
