Quavo the Playmaker
It looks like Quavo has been putting on for his squad long before the Migos blew up. Just recently, Migos frontman posted a video of his high school football highlight reel to his Instagram.
The highlight reel is footage compiled from his days as a quarterback at Berkmar High School in Lilburn, Georgia. The video starts by listing some basic information: his name, Quavious “Quavo” Marshall, his weight, 167 lbs, and his height, 6’ 1”, along with a few other details. Playing as #7, a young Quavo can be seen serving up saucy plays left and right.
From what we know, the footage is presumably from a year he played in 2009. That year, his team, The Berkmar Patriots, went 1-9 in the season. However, his coach says that this wasn’t due to any lack of skill on Quavo’s end.
In an interview with Bleacher Report, Quavious’ former coach John Thompson said that he was “was very smart on the field, understood the offense and how to read the defense.” During his time on the team, Quavious was able to go from backup to starter, and even set a few records in the Gwinnett County football records, specifically for completions in a game.
About a year ago, Quavo showed the world that he still got the juice in an Instagram video posted by Champs Sports. The video shows him launching a football into a basketball hoop from quite a distance, allegedly making it on the first try. Troy Davis, Quavo’s former teammate and current defensive end for the CFL’s Toronto Argonauts, says that he’s confident Quavo’s trick shot was done on his first attempt:
“I’m almost certain he did that on the first try… 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.”
Although his high school football days are in the past, this doesn’t mean that Quavo doesn’t still take the time to flex his athletic prowess from time to time. Back in February, Quavo won the MVP award for the 2018 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game in Los Angeles. Quavo was the lead scorer in the game, putting up 19 points in total. Backed up with five boards and three assists, Quavo left the court with some exemplary stats on his record.
When describing his performance in the game, Quavo said, “I tried to go for a 20-piece. But as long as I have the most points on the floor, that’s the way to go. That way!” Huncho noted that he had done some preparation for the game, saying “I had to get right for this game… I had to make sure the left hand was still there. That’s it.”

Interestingly enough, the Migos rapper has another celebrity game coming up, this time on April 1st, which he advertises in the caption of his football highlight video. The celebrity flag football game, dubbed “Huncho Day on the NAWF”, is advertised as a family-friendly event for charity. The event will include free food, activities, giveways, games and more, according to a recent Instagram post by Huncho himself.
