Many of his attempts as a rookie came from long range – led NFL with an average attempt length of 39.9 yards. Donald was even called on to try two 62-yard attempts as a rookie.

He was nearly automatic from closer in, making 63 of 67 tries from 39 yards or closer for a career percentage of 94.9%. Among his longer shots was a 55-yarder at Minnesota on November 30, 1986 that was a team record at the time and is still tied for the second-longest in franchise history. After a 1988 season in which he connected on 19 of 25 field goals and, for the first time, 100% of his extra point tries (21-21), Donald had his finest NFL season in 1989. Breaking his own single-season scoring record, he recorded 99 points by nailing 22 of 28 field goals. He is the third-leading scorer in Tampa Bay Buccaneers team history. Donald also hit five game-winning field goals either in the last 20 seconds of the game or in overtime, including three in 1988 alone.
