EDMOND — Max McGreevy is looking forward to being under the radar again.

The Edmond Santa Fe senior is excited for the opportunity to need to prove himself again.

McGreevy has enjoyed all the attention and accolades that came with being the defending — and now two-time — Class 6A boys golf state champion. But when he arrives at Oklahoma as a freshman in the fall, he'll be back at the bottom.

That's OK. McGreevy has always felt the underdog role suits him much better.

“I'm looking forward to getting a fresh start, where maybe people don't know me on a bigger stage like that, and I have to prove myself again,” said McGreevy, The Oklahoman's All-City Boys Golfer of the Year for the second straight season.

“I feel like I've been under the radar my whole life, and that all changed these last couple months. But I know I'll be an underdog again when I get to OU.

“I'll have to show new coaches and new players that I can play, and being able to accomplish things that I want to in the future.”
