Subtle references are made in the series to Mack's high intelligence, though one wonders if it is high only in comparison with 95% of his fellow students, who often appear to be (generously speaking) morons. With help from the school Computer Club, he and Jodie [http://web.archive.org/web/20010618230754/www.mtv.com/mtv/tubescan/animation/daria/lhs/about.html designed the school's website] and he runs the [[Lawndale Lions]] sub-site, according to an extinct MTV webpage. He knows Shakespeare at least as well as Daria Morgendorffer ("[[Cafe Disaffecto]]" comments about the skull in ''Hamlet''). An avid sports fan, he has an extensive knowledge of American football and its history, making numerous references to the same in a short written speech that appears in ''[[The Daria Diaries]]''.

Though Mack is portrayed as being a competent football team captain and a good leader, he is not as competent at playing certain positions in the game. He is unable to successfully perform in the quarterback role when Kevin is knocked out of action by a leg injury in "[[A Tree Grows in Lawndale]]."

An extinct webpage on an MTV ''Daria'' site gave Mack's position as RB (=Running Back).
   
 
Mack is quite popular at [[Lawndale High]]. Aside from being the football team captain, he has been elected several times running as the Homecoming King for the school's homecoming parade, with [[Jodie]] always as the Homecoming Queen ("[[I Loathe a Parade]]"). When serving as a football game announcer, Upchuck calls him "Mad Mack" (a play on the character Mad Max of ''The Road Warrior''), which might be his team nickname ("[[A Tree Grows in Lawndale]]"). Though Jodie says everyone at school calls him "Mack" ("[[Gifted]]"), he signs his class papers as "Michael Mackenzie" ("[[Murder, She Snored]]").
