    High School Sports?

    How many of you all played sports in high school? Just curious as to what sport, position, accolades, etc etc. Im going into 10th grade at my school and I play football and soccer. Im the kicker and slot receiver for the football team, and play as a forward/striker for the soccer team. This is my football teams first year having a varsity program, as my school is going on its 5th year. In soccer we have made it to the Elite 8 the past two years at the AAA level. For soccer, I was placed on 2nd team all county this year, scoring 25 goals (3rd in county) and 12 assists. So what sports did y'all play? Make playoffs? Position? Awards? As you all can probably tell I'm reeaally bored and its flat here in georgia. (as usual)

    I played football / baseball in league / high school. Was starting QB most years in FB, won a championship in an undefeated season. Sometimes they put in me at slot receiver, also played corner and safety on defense. On special teams I actually did the long snapping because of how accurate I was, even being undersized, I did pretty well at it.

    Played 2nd base, short, and outfield (sometimes pitched) in baseball. Made the All Star team a couple times, won the sportsmanship award and all that stuff. Also trained in Taekwondo and was a black belt in training when my Dad decided to pull me out (financial reasons). He wasn't able to pay for my travel and competitions once I got to that level. Was able to win 1st place in a local sparring competition before he pulled the plug though, so I go that at least.

    Thats awesome man, must have been very special going undefeated and winning that championship. I also forgot to mention that i play a corner/safety on D. I dropped baseball last year to focus more on soccer, i played second and some outfield as well. You seemed to have a lot of fun and were very athletic/successful throughout high school!

    I won't get into all of it. But I played Basketball and Soccer through College and two years in D1 soccer in college. When I was in High School, the football team wanted me to kick for them because we would mess around and just nailed field goals. All the kickers in the HS level were football players taught to kick.

    If I could turn back time, I would have gone the football kicking route, as gay as that sounds... Just because there is a HUGE market for a decent kicker, albeit the most disrespected position in the game. If you can kick well, you can easily get a scholarship and have the potential to eventually go pro.

    Just saying, if you got a solid foot on you, you might want to do football. The soccer market in this country is garbage. So unless you are the cream of the crop elite, it will be hard to get much further than college.

    What position did you play in soccer? How'd the basketball go? And i know most of the kickers are football players taught to just toe it as far as possible. And i don't have a goal to play farther than college, and getting a soccer scholarship isn't my main goal either.

    Yeah it was quite a bit of fun. I really miss those days. Surfing is my thing now, and is way more challenging then anything I did in sports, so it keeps me humble, but I wouldn't mind putting a helmet and pads on again, although at 33 it's not happening, not worth the injuries HAHA

    Im sure you do, thats all my coaches talk about, to seize the moment now because after a little bit that times over and the hourglass has run out of sand. I try to soak it all up while i still have it but like everyone I'm sure i take it for granted more than i should. And surfing is one of my main things, because its so different, you can't always have it your way (conditions wise) like you can with sports. I can go kick around a soccer ball or throw a football whenever i want, its not that way with surfing.

    I was a sweeper mostly, running a flat back four I would break formation and play stopper sometimes, but always on the D line. I had a never ending supply of energy. I set my school record for playing every minute of every game from Sophmore through senior year. All State, All area, All MVAL. We favored to win the states my senior year and we lost in the first round to Rockville. Ohh well. We were always ranked highly but it never panned out post season. We would face schools that had international players and it just never worked out well for us. Went on to Play D1. Got some action my freshman year. They recruited my position and I didn't get a lot of PT my second year, so after that I just stepped down. It was taking a lot of my time from school, so I was over it.

    As far as Basketball, I was starting PG in high school. I had great handles and was probably the best 3 point shooter on our team, but I was also a big assist guy. Never really got many accolades there. We had a few primarily black schools in our division and they would roll over our bigs. I mean, they would have 3 players catchiing oops by the time I was a senior. I am a 5'9 white guy, so I knew I didn't have a future in B Ball. I still play pickup ball and can light up any young man still.

    Thats my story. I was a guy that loved basketbal, but I was built to play soccer. That was my favorite sport. But I did a lot of track at a young age. Junior Olympics when I was age 10 and 12. Quit track by 13 or so cause I HATED it, i was just fast, so I was basically built for soccer. I was just a pitbull. You have me mark the best striker and I would just shut him down. You couldn't beat me in a footrace, except for this african dude from Rockville. He burned me once. But my future was in soccer, so that is how it panned out.

    Yup, cherish these days. Even if you go on to play in college, it will never be the same. NEVER. good times young man. good times. Innocent times. The world is an ugly place, so the competition and the comradery you have is something you may never see again.
