Anthony Eugene Mcgee
Tony McGee, a 14 year veteran of the National Football League, played with the:
Chicago Bears 1971-1973
New England Patriots 1974-1981
Washington Redskins 1982-1985
Known as Mac the Sack, because of his ability to get to the quarterback, Tony had a career total of 106 sacks and coined the phrase designated pass rusher. A durable defensive lineman, Tony played in 203 games missing only one game during his entire NFL career. Tony was a nominee for the National Football League Hall of Fame in 1994.
Tony McGee began his career at the University of Wyoming. In 1969, the team was off to a 4-0 start and was ranked #10 in the nation. In the game against the BYU Cougars, Tony and 13 other players asked coach Lloyd Eaton if they could wear the armbands in the game, to which the coach’s initial reaction was a simple “no” because it would violate team rules by standing up for any demonstration. The players kept on trying to convince the coach to let them wear them, but this led to him leading all the players out to the bleachers and kicking all of them off the team. After this, Wyoming was not the same, they finished the season 6-4, the team failed to post a winning season again until 1976 and did not appear in another bowl game until the 1987 season.
Tony then went on to finish his college career out at Bishop College in Dallas, Texas.
Mcgee is the founder and host of the longest-running minority-owned sports talk show in the Washington, D.C. region. His Pro Football Plus formerly known as Redskins Magazine Plus television show is celebrating twenty-nine seasons of broadcasting excellence.
Tonys show has partnered with various charities over the expansion of his broadcast career some of which are The Marrow Foundation, Healthy Babies Project and the Capital Area Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation.
His community involvement includes Redskins Magazine Inc. Helping Hands Program which partners with local food chains to provide food baskets for area families during the holiday season. In addition, the Redskins Magazine Inc. Minority Scholarship Program was developed in 2003. This scholarship program is provided for minority college-bound high school graduates and as of this year. The project has awarded forty-five scholarships. Tony is most proud of the lifetime Tony McGee Scholarship endowed by the Kellogg Company for the United Negro College Fund which has awarded in his name since 1985.
