lol, ask anyone in the state of Pennsylvania who the greatest high school athlete ever was and they'll tell you Terrelle pryor..granted, he is young and he hasnt accomplished anything other than a great high school career and a solid freshman year in college but in a few years people will understand...but for now its hard for anyone outside of PA to know what he's about...he'll show all yall soon...but art is right about pittsburgh though, I didnt read his whole list but here's a few that come to my mind from Pittsburgh

Curtis Martin,
Dejuan Blair
Jonathan Baldwin
Terrelle Pryor
Darrelle Revis
Ty Law
Sean Gilbert
Jason Taylor
Verquan Kimbrough.."Champion Boxer in a small weight class"
Paul Spadafora
Michael Morrer...former Heavyweight champion
Dick Hoak

and of course all the old heads like namath, jim kelly, marino and montana..it goes on and on..Pittsburgh breeds the best athletes along side south Florida

fuck man, you made the thread

This isn't about high school ball (as it was presented by you) its about what was done in the college and professional ranks. Granted I think an athlete has to play in high school at a state to be considered truly "from there" but Pryor can't be considered anywhere near the level of a Joe Montana or Dan Marino at this point and to suggest otherwise is asinine.


As it is, his game looks a lot like Vince Young's. That'll work in college (and as a Texas fan, I'm sure happy it did) but it hasn't translated too well to the pros at this point. Only time will tell (for each of 'em).

I love the buckeyes, not everyone from PA is a penn state fan...most people from pittsburgh and its suburbs are pitt fans and follow penn state 2nd..I never liked em, they are 3 or 4 hours from the burgh so I cant consider them a home team..I like the bucks with pryor, ray small, jordan hall who is also from Jeannette pa..the best two players from my home school play ohio state ball so it made me a buck....OH YEA FUCK LEBRON, THE BROWNS AND SORRY ASS CLEVELAND AS A WHOLE...CHOKEEEEE
