at any level. What say you ?
9th grade, Darius White
Leonard Davis, Ladanian Tomlinson and Kwame Cavil.
Each were amazing in different ways.
Johnny Moore. Pick up game in Gregory.
David Boston, WR Humble
Not football related, but baseball, Jaime Garcia from the Cards!
Barry Sanders while he played for the Lions. No lie. But it was basketball. For a guy built like a brick $hithouse he had serious ups on his jumper. Most powerful person I have ever seen in person.
Kris Clack many times, from a HS playoff battle (McNeil vs Anderson) to pick-up games at Pease Park.
David boston was a body builder playing wide reciever , man that dude was jacked.
Played against a lot of awesome guys in baseball, but mine is probably Cedric Benson. They had Winston playing TE and lead blocking for him most of the day. We played them at Texas Satdium and I think he rolled up about 250 yards on us and left us in the dust on their way to another State Title.
Josh Beckett and David Murphy
Tim Brown in high school.
Didn't play football, but in hockey Taylor Hall and Zach Kassian
Johnny "Lam" Jones
Was not in our district but Llano played Lampassas from 7th grade on. He almost single handidly whipped our but every year. Phenomonal athlete.
Mine isnt even close to some of your guys but it was simoni lawrence... He played for valley forge military academy,where i played him in juco ball, as a running back and safety... Valley forge is the same school that larry fitzgerald, julian peterson and many others started at.. Simoni went on to play and start his both years at minnesota at a linebacker/safety hybrid spot.. He is currently on the bucs but will never probly see any time in the nfl due to being an undersized linebacker for the league
I excelled at the world's "futbol", and we'd travel to a lot of youth-select tournaments around the country. We played against guys like Alexi Lalas, John Harkes, Tony Meola, and Claudio Reyna. They were pretty good.
Grant and Ronnie Heard, Carlos Sepulveda, and Victor Schwamkrug. The Heards played ball at Ole Miss, and I'm pretty sure Ronnie was in the NFL for a few years, Sepulveda played baseball at UT for a bit, played some minor league ball and is now an actor of sorts, and Victor played golf at UH and pops up from time to time on the mini tours.
I got brains. I got big ol' brains. I got dinosaur brains.
Clyde Drexler and Roger Clemens in high school basketball. Michael Young was a badass in high school.
Josh Williams (Cy Creek - DL) - went on to play at MIchigan and for the Indianapolis Colts.
Koy Detmer in 1987-88. He played for Southwest middleschool in San Antonio. We (fredericksburg) played them those two years. We lost!

Got trucked a few times in 8th grade by Mathis Gill. Mathis signed with A&M but didn't take care of business and never played for A&M. He broke Roosevelt Leaks' high school records at Brenham. He was a big boy with the sweetest feet you've ever seen. I wonder what he's up to now.
Mike Green - Klein
Ben Gay - Spring
9 and 4 at Texas sucks!
- Jeff Howe
Mind you it was hoops, but DFW high school ball was fairly good back in the day. Freshman year played up with the varsity and learned to stay out of Stephen Howard's way (DePaul & ESPN Analyst.) He was a monster. Also, played against Jimmy King (Fab Five-Mich) and Thomas Hill (Duke). Many more, but those guys stand out. Actually, tried to take a charge on J. King in a summer league game and he cleared all 6'3" of me to stuff it home...
Football - Johnny Walker
Basketball - Devin Brown
Not football but Scott Gomez(hockey player) was a damn good catcher...only person to throw me out stealing 2nd base!
