RHS football player visits Princeton University

Princeton, NJ – Richwood High School football standout Michael McGee visited Princeton University, a renowned Ivy League school, for football and to tour the school’s Engineering Department, this past week on April 11, 2019.

Amid his junior season crusade, albeit just playing five games because of a leg injury, McGee raised consideration from a number of colleges, such as Princeton, Dayton, Marshall, and Harvard.

McGee started his great season directly from the beginning. This past fall, in his first game of the regular season versus Webster County High School, he posted an aggregate of nine catches, 252 receiving yards, and five touchdowns, at last, breaking Richwood High School’s football school record for receiving yards and receiving touchdowns in a single game.

Alongside breaking those two school records, in a playoff game versus South Harrison High School one year prior to that, as a sophomore, McGee broke the school record for both receiving yards and receiving touchdowns in a single playoff game, as well.

Last season, in his five games played, McGee posted a sum of 700 receiving yards and, at the time, additionally led the state in receiving touchdowns with a total of twelve.

Michael McGee’s prosperity on the football field appears to decipher outside of the field, as well. He has kept up a 4.1 GPA all through high school and placed fourth in the recent Math Field Day competition against rival school, Nicholas County High School.

Michael McGee is the first Richwood High School football player to visit a Division 1 football program since the year 2010, when Dustin Brown, a tremendous contributor to Richwood’s 2010 undefeated season, visited West Virginia University’s football program.
