He was a four-year starter at Marist as a quarterback and defensive back for the War Eagles high school football team. He was the first player in school history to amass 1,000 yards rushing and passing in consecutive seasons. He totaled 2,600 yards rushing and 40 rushing touchdowns during his career and also passed for 2,500 yards and 18 touchdowns, leading the War Eagles to a 26–3 record, including a 14–1 record and state championship his senior year, when he was also named the Georgia 4A Offensive Player of the Year.[1] McVay attended Miami University

nonetheless, the Rams pulled off a close 41–39 victory over the San Francisco 49ers

and turned a 16–24 deficit into a 35–30 upset victory over the Dallas Cowboys, but the Rams eventually recorded another loss to division rival Seattle Seahawks at home. Regardless, in just five games, the Rams offense scored a total of 142 (later 151) points a league leader and a franchise high.[citation needed] The Rams went on to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road and the Arizona Cardinals in an NFL International Series game for the team's first shutout win since 2014, as well as raising their record to 5–2 for the first time since 2004 (the last time the team made the playoffs)[citation needed] and a first place lead in the NFC West. McVay coached the Rams to a blowout against the New York Giants

in their highest-scoring game, a 51–17 victory, which raised the Rams' record to 6–2.
