Turns out Migos rapper Quavo has more than one talent.

In a video posted by sports apparel store Champs, Quavo throws a football across a long parking lot and through a basketball hoop on his first try. But this was no fluke. Before he dropped out of Lilburn’s Berkmar High School to commit to music full-time, the “Bad and Boujee” rapper was the school’s starting quarterback. 

Then known as Quavious Marshall, he led the Berkmar Patriots’ 2009 squad, which ended the season with a 1-9 record. The Gwinnett Daily Post credited Marshall with the team’s lone win of the season, a homecoming game against Meadowcreek. One of Marshall’s touchdown passes in that game soared 65 yards.

While Quavo seems focused on the rap game for now, some wonder if another kind of game could be in his future. Quavo reposted a Photoshopped image of him as quarterback for the perennially bad Cleveland Browns from Bleacher Report on Wednesday, captioned “T H A C O M E B A C K.”
