    Re: what was hs football like for you if you played

    Went to Sir Winston Churchill High School.
    (in Thunder Bay)
    The level of competition, was rather low, and there were only 6 teams in my city.
    We played Canadian rules.
    Every team I ever played on was always a contender, but would fall apart as soon as I left.
    At the Junior level, I played RB and P my first year.
    2nd year i dislocated my shoulder backly and was done for the season.
    3rd year switched to corner and started as well as P and KR/PR.
    4th year switched to safety and started untill i dislocated my shoulder again as well as played KR/PR.
    5th year switched back to offense, played RB, a bit of slot reciever, Punter, KR/PR and even a few plays at DE.
    (I'm 5'8" 150).
    In my second year, my team won the city finals.
    3rd and 5th year we lost in the finals, to teams who went on to win the reigonal championships.


    I have some pics here

    this one was probably an end around


    These are kick returns


    this one looks like i'm fumbling, but i've never fumbled in my life

    I'm a LOT and play the NT position occasionally.

    We have no school teams so i'm doomed to travel for 50 minutes just to get there ( almost 2 hours by train and bus )
    I play with the Arnhem Falcons and we actually made it to the final 4 this year ( losing to Amsterdam )

    I'm still a back up ( playing for only 2 seasons ) and personally i think i could really use on my strenght
    Rosie O'Donnell is a dude!

    Re: what was hs football like for you if you played

    dude that has to be annoying i hate being a backup especially out here its insanely fast my conference is the toughest in pittsburgh. i play the school tony dorsett and paul posluzny went to and they are insane also my rival school montour is where michael keaton went the only really famous player if you consider him famous was rich milot who won some superbowls with the redskins as a starting linebacker. and aq shippley the penn state center went to my school. And John Calipari the memphis head basketball coach is one of my schools alumni. any way i am from maplewood, mn and would have gone to play at the same school james laurinaitis went to i also happened to meet him in person what a nice guy huge vikes fan too

    Re: what was hs football like for you if you played

    Westfield High in NJ.

    Played in a ridiculous overpowered(compared to us) conference that we really should not have been in.

    I played DT and journeyman offensive line. I started 2 games at center my junior year, never really got much that much varsity playing time at DT after sophomore year even though when I did play, I played really well.

    I was 6'4 275, ran all my 40s in 4.95-5.05, 25 inch vertical, and 225 for 13 reps(I can do closer to twenty now, but I'm sure I'm slower.)

    I was the biggest and most athletic lineman we had, I practiced hard, but for some reason I didn't get the playing time.

    This was pretty disheartening, I got really frustrated late in junior year, got zero time in the last few games.

    After going 0-20, only winning 2 consolation games in two years, while not getting any playing time, and the coaches not changing thing up at all, I decided not to play my senior year. I focused on track, and I'm glad I did.

    Wasn't very good but it was always a lot of fun, part of the reason I like football so much still.
    The only thing I don't miss though are the two a days, linemen just weren't built for two a days(well atleast fat ones).
