    What position did you play in High School

    I'm assuming that some of the board members here played High School Football. Whether they played as bad as I did remains to be seen...but I think it would be cool to post the position we played and our favorite stories.

    So here goes: I played cornerback in high school for a tiny town in Colorado that during the Great Reshuffling of Divisions of 1981 got placed with the perennial state powers like Mullen and Cherry Creek.

    On September 25th 1981 we were playing Douglas County (Ironically, the team I root for now) and I -me!- intercepted a pass in the endzone that was tipped off our superstud linebacker's pinky fingers. The pass landed in my arms and I was so excited...the guy next to me, one of ours, was screaming GO! GO! GO! GO!

    There was nothing but green ahead. Easy touchdown. Their quarterback was down, half of their offensive line was down. Easy as stealing candy from a baby.

    I tripped and landed on the goal line. My waist was at the goal line, my legs in the endzone, the ball about a foot over the end.

    I pleaded for a touchback but the ref was resolute. The ball was placed on the half yard line and on the next play our fullback was ripped and DC got a safety.

    Final Score: Douglas County 38, My Little High School 19
    Rest in Peace, Darrent and Damien. You will be forever in our thoughts

    Just had blazing speed, love the game, student of the game, had the best hands ever to play football, if the ball was in the air it was catchable, ran great routes, never wanted to leave the field............and no you could not even cover my shadow.

    Just a little history.

    I'll have you know I picked off two passes in one scrimmage!

    And I was slow. I'd give the other guys a 8 yard cushion when they were shotgunning....

    You better give me at least 99 yards worth of cushion.
