Before he became a pass-catching tight end in college, Virginia transfer Jake McGee was a very good high school quarterback at the Collegiate School in Richmond, Va.
The guy McGee succeeded at QB in high school?
Russell Wilson, who quarterbacked the Seattle Seahawks to a victory in the Super Bowl just a few months ago.
“He was a senior when I was a freshman,” McGee said. “And I played football, basketball and baseball with him. Basketball being the sport I played, and baseball a little bit. But football, I was on varsity, but I was just sort of taking it all in and watching.”
McGee said he still has a relationship with Wilson and will seek advice from him.
“He’s a good friend of mine,” McGee said. “I don’t talk to him a ton because he’s out west and he’s a pretty busy guy, but when he comes back and works out, when he has his camps in the summer and stuff, I usually work them every summer and get to see him, catch up.
“Yeah, it’s pretty cool just having him as a friend and a guy you can look up to. If I have any questions, I can talk to him about a lot of things just because he’s a guy that’s been through a lot and done really well with his life.”
