McCoy threw for 3,086 yards and 42 touchdowns while adding 844 yards and 14 more scores on the ground in BBA's high-scoring offense. He threw for 16 TD passes in three playoff games as BBA captured the second of back-to-back state crowns (the Manchester school won the D-II title in 2018).
McCoy was also a standout on defense, racking up 100 tackles and picking off four passes from the safety position.
“Joey is a dual threat, and can run and throw with the best, which made him almost impossible to defend,” Mount Anthony coach Chad Gordon said in a statement “What makes him even better is he doesn’t make mistakes. He is accurate, makes the right reads and elevates the play of the team around him.”
McCoy has maintained a weighted grade-point average of 4.74. He also launched BBA's Unified Partners program, supporting athletes with intellectual challenges, and serves as a coach for BBA’s Unified basketball team. He has volunteered locally as part of a fundraising campaign to benefit cancer research, and has donated his time at a homeless shelter and food bank.
McCoy remains undecided upon a collegiate destination.
As a part of Gatorade’s cause marketing platform “Play it Forward,” McCoy has the opportunity to award a $1,000 grant to a local or national youth sports organization of his choosing, the news release said.
