Northwood incoming senior Kwaume McGee is a three sport athlete for the Falcons. He also plays just as many instruments.

"I can play the drums, the piano, the bass guitar," said McGee, about his musical talents. "My dad could play and I was always around music so it was something that I wanted to do."

When McGee is not playing the drums at church he can be found at Northwood's athletic facilities. In the fall he spends time on the football field. In the winter he can be found inside the basketball gym. And in the spring he is perfecting his craft on the track.

He also placed second at long jump at state during his junior campaign
