Personal Info: My name is Jay McGee and I am from Iuka MS.  I attended Tishomingo High School where I graduated in 1985.  After high school I attended Northeast on a football scholarship in the fall of '85.  In the spring of 1986 I joined the U.S. Army where I spent six years.  After a tour in Germany and Desert Storm I was Honorable Discharged in the Spring of 1992.  This is where my life brought me into education.

After completing my degree, I started my teaching and coaching career at Hernando Middle School as the Head Football Coach.  At the same time I was fortunate enough to be on the coaching staff of the Arena 2 Football League, Memphis Xplorers for two years where I served as the OL/DL coach as well as the Special Teams Coach. 

I soon moved on to Memphis where I became the Head Football Coach at American Way.  I was fortunate to win back to back State Championships at THE WAY and was names MIAA Coach of the Year both year in Memphis City Schools.
