Coach Bill Murray once called Mike McGee "the greatest lineman I have ever been associated with." Few who saw McGee's No. 68 all over the field in the late 1950's would disagree.

McGee, a native of Elizabeth City, NC, was a stalwart offensively and defensively from 1957-59. He received his first collegiate start at right guard in the 1958 Orange Bowl and used it as a stepping stone to a great career.

McGee was impressive both as a junior and senior. One of the great moments of his junior season came in the final game with North Carolina, when he blocked a Tar Heel extra point to give Duke a 7-6 victory and keep UNC out of the Sugar Bowl.

As a senior, McGee was team captain and MVP, national lineman of the week following an upset of Georgia Tech, ACC football player-of-the-year, ACC athlete-of-the-year, a consensus All-America and the Outland Trophy winner.

Now 45 years old and the director of athletics at Cincinnati, McGee was named to the ACC's Silver Anniversary team in 1978. He also spent eight seasons as Duke's head coach, compiling a 37-47-4 record.
