athletes from your highschool

What athletes, if any, have gone the farthest in sports. This could be all-time or when you were there.

Best athlete all time from my highschool was probably the golfer Corey pavin. Best while I was there was probably a football player named Jacob Rogers who was an all american center for the national champions USC Trojans and an eventual 2nd round pick by the Cowboys. Just surious to hear if any of you had some succesful athletes from your school.

Donald Strickland. Bounced around the NFL last year he was with his hometown niners but now I think he's elsewhere

Black Knights

My highschool had Andray Blatch of the Washington Wiz. He was a sophmore when I was a senoir but they won the NY state title in 2002, when he was promoted from JV to varisty.

We also had some football player from my highschool who was the 4th string WR for the Bucs when they won the superbowl. I can't think of his name but he was the biggest name in my highschool at the time being.

Home of the Black Knights.

North Central High School

Todd Licklighter - Played basketball at NC and wound up eventually playing college ball at Butler University. He wasn't a great player, but he eventually ended up coaching at Butler. He was an assistant at Butler under two great coaches (Barry Collier and Thad Matta). He became the head coach in 2001 after Matta left for Xavier. He's now the head coach at Iowa.

Lars Tate - Big time football player (running back) who was named the 1985 Gatorade National High School Offensive Player of the Year. He played for the University of Georgia and was drafted by Buccanneers in the second round of the 1988 draft. He also played for the Bears.

Maicel Malone-Wallace - She was a beast in track in field. She won like 11 state titles while at NC. She was the 1996 Olympic Games gold medalist in the women's 4 x 400 meters relay for the United States. She's currently the head track and field coach at Florida A&M.

Derrick Mayes - Big time football player who went on to play wide receiver at Notre Dame. He played three seasons at Notre Dame and held the school record for touchdown receptions. He was drafted in the second round by the Packers in 1996. He also played for the Seahawks.

Jason Gardner - HUGE high school basketball player. He led NC to the class 4A State Championship and won Mr. Basketball of Indiana during his senior year. He was a McDonald's All-American and went on to play four years at Arizona where he had a very productive career. He wasn't drafted by the NBA, but has had a nice career overseas. I went to middle school and high school with him, so I got to see a lot of his games.

Courtney Roby - FAST/Electric football player who went on to play wide receiver at Indiana. He's actually in my class, so I grew up competing against him in sports. He played four seasons at Indiana where he broke most of the records. He was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the third round of the 2005 NFL Draft. He's played with the Titans, Bengals, Colts and now is currently playing with the Saints.

Jordan Seabrook - Big time soccer player (one of the fastest dudes I've ever seen) who's now playing proffesionally for Crystal Palace Baltimore. He was the 51st pick in the 2009 MLS SuperDraft by Colorado Rapids.

Eric Gordon - The best basketball player to come out of NC. Now with the Clips.

Other guys from NC:

David Wolf - Astronaut
Babyface - Singer/Songwriter
Jared Fogle - The subway guy

I went to school with Chris

I went to school with Chris Johnson, he played center for LSU and is their second all time leading shot blocker behind Shaq. I was disapointed he didn't get drafted this year.

Matt Bowen is a backup safety that's bounced around the NFL, not sure where he is now. A top 50 OL recruit from this year is going to Notre Dame for football. Also, John Shurna on Northwestern and the US U19 team went to my school.

Chris Whitney- played for the Wizards in the NBA as well as a few other teams

Scotty Hopson- currently starting at SG/SF for Tennessee, look for him to step his game up this season

Tyshawn Edmondson- currently plays for St. Johns

Lamont Barnes- played for Temple in college...spent most of his pro career overseas

Greg Buckner- everybody knows him

Isiah Victor- played college for Tennesse, spent some time in the DLeague & overseas

I remember watching all these guys play in high school except for Whitney who is quite a bit older than me. All these guys of course pretty much dominated in high school. I am probably forgetting somebody.


Artose Pinner- played in the NFL running back for the Lions, also played for a couple other teams, played for Kentucky in college

Curtis Pulley- played QB for Kentucky in college until he transferred to Florida A&M where he currently still is I believe. he was a real good basketball player in high school too
