Emmetri from Fauquier County: You had a break out game this season against Maryland. What made the difference? Can you name one particular skill in which you have improved?
9335649.jpeg spacer.gif Jake McGee: One thing I can point to is the chemistry and confidence between me and David, plus the entire offense has started to take its stride.
Murray: What has been your most memorable moment as a student athlete at Virginia?
9335649.jpeg spacer.gif Jake McGee: Looking back at the Penn State game last year as a whole – we saw all the hard work pay off in a win and it showed the hard work I put in to be able to deliver on the field.
Earl (Nelson County): You were a high school basketball star, which four other guys on the current UVa football team would you pick up for a five-on-five hoops tournament?
9335649.jpeg spacer.gif Jake McGee: My team, in addition to myself, would include Morgan Moses, Kevin Parks, Anthony Harris and Luke Bowanko. If we need fouls to give, I would bring Billy Skrobacz off the bench, much like Ollie from the movie Hoosiers.
Zach Greenspan (East Norwich): Who is your favorite NFL athlete and why?
9335649.jpeg spacer.gif Jake McGee: Zach that is an easy question for me right now – I have to stay with my Collegiate teammate Russell Wilson with Seattle.
Dan: Best dressed player on the team?
9335649.jpeg spacer.gif Jake McGee: E.J. Scott – he is always ahead of the game when it comes to the newest outfits.
Greg (Arlington): Is the “combover Thursday” movement spreading through the team? Who would you most like to see rock the combover?
9335649.jpeg spacer.gif Jake McGee: I think if Tra’ Nicholson could figure out a way to pull off the combover, it would take the movement to a whole new level.
Jordan (Cville): I know you are tight with a lot of the men’s basketball players. Which guy would you most like to throw one down on?
9335649.jpeg spacer.gif Jake McGee: I want to dunk on Evan Nolte as many times as possible until he sends me back to the McCue Center (smiling)
Stevie (White Plains, N.Y.): What are three things you would need to take with you on Safari?
9335649.jpeg spacer.gif Jake McGee: 1. Matt Fortin 2. Water 3. Snacks
Paul Freedman: hey “the kid” when’s the last time u have won in FIFA (be honest)
9335649.jpeg spacer.gif Jake McGee: I take my video games very seriously and I have yet to lose a game in FIFA. Thank you Paul for your question.
Timmy (CVille): Outside of Scott Stadium, which venue has been the most fun to play in since you came to UVa?
9335649.jpeg spacer.gif Jake McGee: Florida State was a tremendous place and a tremendous atmosphere to play in. Then how we won it in the end and how the entire place went from raucous to silent was a pretty special feeling.
Wyatt (DC): What does the team need to do to get back on track tomorrow against Duke?
9335649.jpeg spacer.gif Jake McGee: If we are able to build off the Maryland game and turn field goals into touchdowns, I believe that will help us get back on the winning track.
Evan (Charlottesville): Are near-impossible one handed grabs something you work on in practice?
9335649.jpeg spacer.gif Jake McGee: The one-handed catches are not planned and instincts take over. The goal is to catch the ball anyway possible.
Jessie: Which was more thrilling in the moment – the crazy catch that extended the drive last year vs. Penn State or the game winner in the back of the end zone vs. Miami?
9335649.jpeg spacer.gif Jake McGee: Tough questions, because they both were special and led to UVa wins. But I will go with the Miami game because it was the last offensive play of the game. Looking back at it now – Miami hasn’t lost since that day in Scott Stadium.
Billy Skrobacz: jake! Long time listener, first time caller … what’s your favorite lunch meat?
9335649.jpeg spacer.gif Jake McGee: My favorite type of sandwich is turkey, bacon and cheese.
Evan Nolte: Hey Jake I’m a huge fan man and I know you’re really busy but do you think you could come to my birthday party this year? And maybe even sign a shirt or something for me? That would be awesome.
9335649.jpeg spacer.gif Jake McGee: Sure, would be happy too … but I am still dunking on you.
team-logo-va.gif spacer.gif Wahoo Central Moderator: That is all the time we have today. Thank you Jake McGee for stopping by Wahoo Central. Best of luck to the Cavaliers tomorrow and see you at Scott Stadium.
