Donovan said, "It's been a blessing to be able to come to Meridian and be an Eagle; it's like family there. That's how I felt when I visited Delta State, and that's why I felt like it was the place I wanted to be. If it weren't for my coaches and my teammates at Meridian the past two years, I wouldn't be where I am today. It's been the best two years, and I'm grateful for the opportunity I've received to keep playing the game I love."
