Jacksonville's McGregor shines in all-star game

He might have played at a non-scholarship Star game Saturday in Boca Raton.

Better yet, pro scouts took notice, too.

McGregor led three scoring drive in the first quarter, finished 11 of 12 for 123 yards and rushed for a touchdown while leading the North team to a 51-3 romp over the South. He was named his team's most valuable player.

"It's weird," said McGregor, who also caught a 7-yard pass in his one quarter of work. "I was MVP from a small school (Belle Glades Day) in my high school all-star game and now in college."

The game featured NFL Draft-eligible players who were either born in Florida or played high school or college football in the state. Representatives from 29 NFL teams, four Canadian Football League and one Arena Football League team scouted the game.

Kerwin Bell, McGregor's head coach at Jacksonville, which plays in the non- scholarship Pioneer Football League, was the North's offensive coordinator. The head coach was Bobby Bowden, the legendary former Florida State mentor.

McGregor, from Royal Palm Beach, Fla., ended his career 23rd on the all-time FCS list with 11,230 passing yards and was sixth in touchdown passes with 111.

Another one of the highlights for the North came from Appalachian State's DeAndre Presley, the quarterback-turned-defensive-back. He returned a punt 65 yards for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter.
