Being named to the annual Clarion Ledger Dandy Dozen list is an honor for any football player that earns that distinction.

With 5 players already on the prestigious roster, today Markell Pack from Purvis became the 6th member of this year's list.

In the 2012 season the 6'2", 180 lb. product from Purvis finished with 44 catches and 770 yards to go along with 7 touchdowns.

The newest member of the Dandy Dozen also had more than 440 yards and 5 touchdowns on the ground.

The senior wide-out has offers from all 3 major schools in the state, but verbally committed to Florida State in May.

He joins fellow Purvis Dandy Dozen members Orlando Dentzler in 1996 and Walter Young in 1998.
