McCoy Loves Video Games, Lives With His Sister

September 16th, 2010

Of course, Joe listened to Tuesday night’s Gerald McCoy Show on WDAE-AM 620.

There’s nothing earth-shattering to report, but Joe did compile some interesting nuggets from No. 93.

  • McCoy lives with his sister in Tampa. His grandmother died last week, but he is staying in Tampa while his close-knit family is together in Oklahoma. “They know I’m out here, and I have to work.”
  • McCoy tried to play basketball his freshman year of high school but his dad didn’t allow it. “My father was like, ‘Nope, no injuries for you.’ We got to play football.'”
  • He plans on being in the playoffs.
  • He had no problem with the speed of pro game.
  • The Bucs team nutritionist helps him out with a meal regimen.
  • He plays lots of video games. He’s not a big Madden player, but he plays it now “because I’m in it. ” Outside of video games, in his free time McCoy says, “I read my bible a lot.”
  • McCoy was quite pleased Florida State fans were brought down to earth after losing big to his beloved Oklahoma Sooners on Saturday. “We have a 32 home game winning streak for a reason.”

McCoy definitely is comfortable behind the microphone. He doesn’t play like a rookie there, either.

    I listened to his show as well. He seems like a really good kid.

    I loved the story about him being in church when the Bucs were playing in the Super Bowl.

    Gerald likes to bowl, too. Friend of mine in OKC saw him bowling by himself one afternoon this summer, so he took the lane next to him and they rolled away the afternoon. Said he was a nice guy.

    This is the kinda guy you build a team around! Both he and Josh Freeman will be players that keep us in the playoffs for years. Good guys- great players!!

    He bought Jeff Faine’s house in tampa, which is next door to some people I know. They said he is very nice and that his dad is there a lot and he’s a nice guy too.
