It wasn’t until my man Cacique at Sporting News Radio made mention of this that I realized what I was missing out on. According to YouTube, over 1.1 million people have seen the stud that is Allen Iverson play high school football. Until today, I was not one of them. In case you haven’t either, please enjoy the awesomeness of A.I. who was apparently quite the two-sport star in high school, good enough to have played in the NFL, they say. Check out his highlight reel:
For anyone who’s been watching A.I. ball for the last 10-15 years or so, this shouldn’t be much of a surprise. He’s always appeared strikingly quick and elusive on the court, making his name by darting through defenders on the dribble, and stealing passes on defense. I think it’s safe to say he made the right career choice, no matter how good he was at football.
