“Rougher celebrates the 4th in a different way” – Presented by Nissan of Muskogee

While America celebrated Independence Day, Muskogee Rougher wide receiver Kayden McGee had a
different kind of celebration as he announced his commitment to play football for the Rebels of the
University of Nevada Las Vegas in the fall of 2024.
McGee had nine college offers to pick from including Colorado State, Arkansas State, Montana and
Southeast Missouri but felt being a Rebel was where he was meant to be.
“From the moment they offered me until the moment I committed, they stayed in touch with me every
two or three days and when I went there it just felt like home,” said the Rougher senior-to-be. “They
were true about what they were about. They want to rebuild the program and win some championships
and I want to be a part of that.”
The announcement culminated a two-year effort of on-field excellence and an off-field self-promotion
campaign through social media by McGee.
“A lot of folks think I’m undersized for college ball, but UNLV wasn’t concerned about my size because
they knew that would come and they just wanted to work with me.”
As McGee’s final season as a Rougher begins in less than two months, he knows what lays ahead and
has some definite goals he would like to achieve.
“I know there’s a target on my back this year and I want to do what’s best for the community and when
the big moments come, I want the ball in my hands. I want to continue to make history at Rougher
Village. I had the first touchdown in the new place and this year I want to have at least 1000 yards
receiving, have more touchdowns than last year (13), and, of course, win a gold ball.”
