Stephen Richard McGee (born September 27, 1985 in Round Rock, Texas) is an American football quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys. He played college football for Texas A&M.
McGee came into A&M as a highly-regarded passing quarterback, though had to play in an option offense for three years under head coach Dennis Franchione. When Franchione left and Mike Sherman took over, McGee had the chance to thrive in a pro-style offense his senior season. He fell short, however, due to a recurring shoulder injury. He was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the 2009 NFL Draft in the fourth round, number 101 overall. He is currently the backup Quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.
McGee was a three-year starter at quarterback for Class 3A Burnet High School, where he led his team to a 36-5 combined record, including a 28-2 mark as a junior and senior. He did not throw a single interception during the regular season of his senior year. In both of those seasons, he led his team to the 3A state finals. He finished his high school career with 8,256 passing yards and a 3A state-record 101 passing touchdowns. He was a two-time all-state selection and was named the 3A Offensive Most Valuable Player after his senior season.
