What sports did you play in high school? Were you part of a division/county/state championship team?

Football, basketball, baseball. No championships (in high school). My career was littered with close losses to the eventual state champions. I have kids who played for and have coached on teams that won titles, so I have learned to live vicariously through the efforts of others.

Football and Wrestling. Our football team was regional champs and lost in the state semifinals both my junior and senior year, both times to the team that won the title.

I played golf which got me a letter for my jacket -- if we were more competitive then I probably would not have made the team.

Football. DEFENSE! Four sacks in one game. Yeah, it was a school record. Not that I'm bragging.

We didn't have a wrestling team, but did have a tournament every year. I won my weight class in my junior and senior year.

Baseball. I played center and pitched. Junior year I blew my arm out and switched to first, but my game was never the same.

Hockey and baseball (and karate outside of school).

I was a pretty mediocre player on mediocre teams. Our high school didn't have boy's soccer---I would have also played that if we had.

Basketball for 4 years, and came out for a few other sports on random days that my tiny school was short players and needed bodies.

Re: What sports did you play in high school?

Soccer, baseball, and basketball. Only played basketball for the full four years, as it is what I excelled at. Never won a championship of any note, nor did my school while there, though we did make it to the final eight in BBall. Of course the year after I graduated, they won their first title in football and began a run as one of the most successful high school athletic programs in the nation.

Re: What sports did you play in high school?

I clicked "football" but really I pretty much only played in middle school. I don't know that I was very good, anyway. These days, I absolutely can't stand it.

Oops. My fault for forgetting wrestling. One of my best friends was a wrestler. Do not take it as an affront to your sport.

wendersfan: What type of shooting?
