I kind of borrowed this from another thread. But i was wondering if you know any famous people, sports players, etc.. that attended your high school.

The only one i know of is John F. Nash, 94 Nobel prize winner i believe he was. And that movie with russle crow "A Beutiful Mind". That was about him also

i coached ATL Falcons WR Roddy White when he played for the same high school i went to, and im glad the Dolphins didnt end up with him in the draft... also Langston Moore, DT for the Bengals (i think) is another alum of my HS, and quasi famous Brady Finta, who was the FBI guy on Survivor about 3 seasons ago. he was a nice guy in school, and he had two smoking hot sisters, plus his dad was a Top Gun instructor at one time.

Since I grew up in little-ol' Rhode Island there wasn't much of a chance for anyone REALLY famous, lol. I think my high school had MAYBE 500 kids TOPS. Anyway, Richard Hatch (winner of Survivor 1) went there, and NFL running Back Mike Cloud went to Portsmouth (next town over, same county) and we played him (well, I didn't play him, he is like 9 years older than me, lol). Other than that I'm not too sure if anyone famous has gone to my school.

I did the PA for a couple games between my school and Gibbons (Taurean Green's school). Man, he was incredible in high school. His coach, Buddy Pressley, sarcastically left him out of the starting lineups for the second game I did for them. I looked at him and asked if he had made a mistake, and replied, "what, you think I should play Tory?"

I think five NFL players graduated from my high school, Mitchell HS, Colorado Springs, including Terry Miller (1980 runner-up for Rookie of the Year) and Lawrence McCutcheon (Five Pro Bowls).

May 2, 1978 -- RB TERRY MILLER IS BILLS' NO. 1 PICK IN 1978 NFL DRAFT
RB Terry Miller from Oklahoma State was the Bills' No. 1 pick (5th Overall) in the 1978 NFL Draft.

Lawrence McCutcheon (born in 1950 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1950)) played for the Los Angeles Rams (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Los_Angeles_Rams) from 1972 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1972)-1979 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1979), the Denver Broncos (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denver_Broncos) & Seattle Seahawks (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seattle_Seahawks) in 1980 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1980) and finished his playing career in 1981 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1981) with the Buffalo Bills (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffalo_Bills), reuniting with his former Rams coach Chuck Knox (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chuck_Knox).
McCutcheon was selected in the 3rd Round of the 1972 NFL Draft (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=1972_NFL_Draft&action=edit) by the Rams out of Colorado State University (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colorado_State_University), 70th overall. He appeared in 89 games for the Rams, appearing in seven playoff games including Super Bowl XIV (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Bowl_XIV). In 1975 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1975) McCutcheon established a Postseason record by rushing for 202 yards on 37 carries in a playoff game against the St. Louis Cardinals (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Louis_Cardinals).

You know the deal. They get our hopes up then rip out our hearts and eat them with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

Luckily Evans was fired and so will Koetter after next season. He's had long enough to get some semblance of a defense and we know that if they lose to USC, the whole season is done because he can't get them mentally prepared for the rest of the games.

Wow, another Mitchell Marauder!!!!! :eek: I remember all the Sapp brothers...Mr. Sapp use to be the Cafeteria monitor. I graduated in 1984 on my 18th birthday with my twin brother Steve, I have seen Sapp on TV....he is huge!!!! Ohhh hey during the season there are about 20-30 Dolphin fans at Kelly O'Briens at the Target near the Citadel....I go there sometimes or the Dublin House or the Overtime.

Evans never got it done...I am so tired of losing basketball games to Arizona every year. :tantrum: But we kill them in football. I think next year could be a great year for ASU in football....I think some magazine had them ranked #14.

They were ranked 16 going into last year. It is just so frustrating seeing us put up as many points as we do and yet let USC and others come back the way they do. The offense is going to be GREAT next season, but he hasn't done anything with the defense yet during the offseason. Again.

Did you go to high school in Colorado?

There were a couple olympic athletes last summer games, pretty much our whole varsity football team gets picked up by 1-a schools. Our basketball team I know a Uconn player went there. Brian Piccolo and Michael Irvin went to st. thomas and a bunch more. Too many to list actually.
