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)

High School Sports?

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.

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.

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.
