    Default Greatest athlete from your home state

    who is the greatest home grown athlete from your state? The athlete who grew up there and played high school ball and dominated in college or pro ball....Im from Pennsylvania and arguebly the greatest athlete ever from PA is Terrelle Pryor, the highly recruited QB from Jeannette high school who plays at Ohio State...when he played high school ball his team averaged 57 points a game in football and lead the nation in scoring with 860 points in one season...they scored 70 plus points 3 or 4 times and beat every opponent by 35 or more points...Terrelle and the starting lineup never played more than 2 quarters in any game in 2007, including the state championship....they won the states in Football and Basketball...

    you are only saying terrelle because you were born in that shit hole jeanette. until he has the career of dan marino, joe montana, tony dorsett, ken griffey jr. or johnny unitas, you can't even mention him. quit being a homer.

    lol no doubt



    it's a toss up between lawrence taylor and moses malone for VA, IMO.


    there was a kid named damone boone, who was a fuckin beast ass RB in high school mid-90's. ran for half a thousand yards in one game. went to maryland, did fuck all, and was never heard from again.

    Hey art, first of all stop hatin on the home grown talent..secondly, even though I am from Jeannette everyone knows that terrelle pryor had more success in high school than anyone who ever stepped foot in PA..He is the only football player in PA history to rush and pass for over 4000 yards in a career..He has always had alot of haters but you haters cant stop him, nobody can!!!!! He's the greatest high school athlete ever! He's gonna be the best college QB ever too, just like shaun king said!!!! I wasnt asking for your opinion on terrelle, I was asking who you guys thought was the single best athlete ever in your states history....Get off his dick, lol you probably have an Ohio state #2 jersey tucked away in the back of your closet that you wear on the sneak tip....you know hes great, you just dont wanna see your boy shine

    me get off his dick? you're the one declaring him the greatest athlete ever and he is only 20. there's lots of great high school players who were supposed to be the next great one who never made it. i'm not hating on the hometown. i mentioned unitas, marino, griffey, etc. i'm just saying because you know somebody who knows somebody who knows pryor, don't suck his dick.

    is pryor a great athelete? yes. was he a high school phenom? yes. does he have the potential to be on that list of greats? yes. but he's not there yet. so i won't put him on that list.

    come on, you can't throw drew brees in with that group of guys. i wouldn't even throw tomlinson in there until he proves to be one of the greats over a greater period of time. mike singletary was the greatest middle linebacker i had seen play until ray lewis came along. michael johnson is a world class sprinter and earl campbell's bruising highlights are fucking unbelievable. i wish i could have seen him play in person.

    yeah, I don't think they're on the same level but y'know current greats mixed in with some true legends. The list of Texas sporting greats is long as fuck though. You could probably write a book on it.
