Before Quavious Marshall became known around the world as Quavo, one-third of rap trio Migos, he was a record-breaking quarterback for Berkmar High School just north of Atlanta.

He’s proven his athletic prowess this year, winning NBA All-Star Celebrity Game MVP honors this year and nailing a deep football pass into a basketball hoop in a spot for Champs Sports just two months later.

He did it again on Tuesday, dropping a one-minute highlight reel of his days throwing and running all over opposing defenses in high school.

Starting as a senior in 2009, Quavo led Gwinnett County in passing yards and set a county record for completions in a game, with 28, a mark that would stand for only a year.

Despite his impressive stats, the team went 1-9.

“He was very smart on the field, understood the offense and how to read the defense,” his former head coach John Thompson told Bleacher Report in April.

Troy Davis, now a defensive end for the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL, was Quavo’s teammate.

“Even if he got out of the pocket, he would always keep his eyes downfield,” Davis said. “I think he liked throwing the deep ball. When he got rushed, we’d be, like, ‘Run for the first down!’ and he’d end up throwing it for 40 yards.”

And that long throw into a basketball hoop?

“I’m almost certain he did that on the first try,” Davis said. “He would do that at practice, too — throwing the ball in the trash can, those kinds of things. He always had a strong arm. If he’d stuck with it, he might have gone somewhere.”
