No matter how big he is in stature, Galena Park, Texas athlete Gahn McGaffie has been making plays since he was a freshman in the Houston area.
The 5-foot-11, 178-pounder was a wide receiver as a true freshman on the varsity team at Galena Park. He then moved to quarterback as a junior and led his Yellow Jackets to a winning record. During one game against Montgomery, McGaffie had 245 yards through the air in a 29-28 win in overtime.
McGaffie has also picked up his first scholarship offer and things seem to be rolling.

"Nebraska was the first one," McGaffie said. "I was thankful that they offered me as a junior."
As for a favorite, McGaffie denies having any. After attending the Rivals.com Junior Day in Houston this past weekend, he's looking at future visits.
"I'm going to Texas Tech and Nebraska's junior day coming up I believe," he said. "I'm pretty open right now. I'm just waiting to check out my options.
"Mostly, I need to discuss it all with my mom and go from there with a decision later on."
McGaffie's coach, Ray Zepeda, says that his athletic ability is rare.
"He could be a great slot receiver or corner in college because of his hips and speed," Zepeda said in an earlier update. "We just can't replace his athleticism at quarterback."
