People you played in HS
I always see "I played him in HS" in almost every post that talks about prospects of any sport. I wanted to make a thread for the exact purpose.

People you played WITH in high school are also game

Beans 05-27-2009 09:42 PM

were two grades ahead of you in middle school and you didnt know them at all until you found out they were an ace pitching prospect

Played in a game against Jason Kidd when I was a junior in HS. It didn't go well for me.

I played with or against St.Louis Blues forward David Perron for pretty much all of my years of playing hockey.

When I was a freshman I watched Jordan Farmar(he was a senior) destroy my first HS.

DJC 05-27-2009 09:55 PM

Our HS hosted Greg Oden and Eric Gordon. Our crowd tore was relentless with the chants too.

I played against the dude who played Colbert in the movie of Friday Night Lights when he came out with some HS all star team to tour Australia. I popped him pretty good in the hole twice but he burned me on a RB streak right up the middle for a TD.

Ran against Tom Zbikowski in track. He was always the only white boy in the finals for the 100 and 200. Good times.

You should have hung out with him in middle school. Gave him a snack pack or something. Then you could be hangin out with the Tigers!

My freshman year I played in a basketball tournament in Santa Clara against schools that starred Tyson Chandler, Tayshaun Prince and DeShawn Stevenson. I actually had to guard Stevenson for our game and I think I was outscored something like 35-3 and was dunked on twice.

My high school was ass raped by Ryan D'Imperio. He was a running back back at Washington Township. Another person who also killed my high school when I was there was Albert Young who later went on to play at Iowa before Shonn Greene.

Torin Harris CB USC FR., he is a beast, played RB and he almost single handidly won us the state game but the kicker missed the game winning FG. Harris is super fast and is our best track athlete and he played QB, RB and CB for the football team. He is a monster.

-Kyle Palmieri (ranked top 20 in this year's NHL draft).
-Alex Velischek (ranked the 63rd best skater in NA in the NHL draft; also one of my best friends)
-Numerous kids who are playing/headed to play D1 or Major Junior (USHL & EJHL)
-i've also been coached by or skated with a boat load of former NHLers

-more than half my varsity lacrosse team plays at least D3 lax in college, and there's always at least a few that go D1 each year.
-too many D1 lax players/future players to name that i've played against

-watched Anthony Fasano play at my high school field when I was in 8th grade lol

-used to play pick up football, soccer, baseball, etc. with Sean Bierman (Vanderbilt lefty pitcher, i believe the Reds have the rights to him) he was the year ahead of me in hs.

I played basketball against Seantrell Henderson.

saintsfan912 05-27-2009 11:06 PM

Watched Warrick Dunn and Travis Minor rip our high school a new asshole everytime we played them. I was in middle school but was still fun to watch. Ben Sheets got me drunk a few times when I was 16 and working at his uncles store. Glenn dorsey played for our rival high school, watched him wreck shop for a while.
