A two-sport star at Brockton High School, McMurtry was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the first round (14th overall pick) of the 1986 Major League Baseball Draft after being named the Gatorade Massachusetts Player of the Year, but instead decided to attend the University of Michigan on a football scholarship.

His career highlight may have come in Week 4 of the 1991 season, when he caught a game winning touchdown from QB Hugh Millen in the final minute against the Houston Oilers.
