McGee was a tenacious two-way guard for the standout Duke teams of the late 1950's under head coach Bill Murray. In 1959, he became the first ACC player to be honored with the Outland Trophy, which is presented annually to the nation's top interior lineman. That year, as the ACC's top overall male athlete in any sport, he captured the McKevlin Award. He was also named the ACC Football Player of the Year and was a first-team All-America selection by the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA), Time and Look Magazines.
