Default Biggest names who played football at your alma mater?

I figured since I was about to head to Jackson to watch my alma mater play for the 5A state championship game tonight, the first time in 25 years, I would throw this question out there.

Former Bears QB Shane Matthews and Thorpe award winner Terrell Buckley are the two biggest names. They both played on the 87 championship team.

Yes, I did watch them play in high school. They are a little older than me.

Mark Moundros

Played FB and a little LB for Michigan a couple years ago, he was a few years younger than me, had a few CAD classes with him.

Besides that, I don't know of anyone who has played college ball from my HS

All the good football players in the area did school of choice and went to Harrison High School, one of the top programs in the nation over the last 20 years or so. Lots of kids from there played in college and a few to the NFL too, and a bunch of them who were supposed to go to my school based on where they lived

This kid didn't play football at my alma mater, but he may end up more famous than either of the other two.

Most famous guy from my highschool is probably this jackhole.

My cousins in AZ live in an NFL factory school district. Gerrell Robinson, Dontay Moch, Terrell Suggs. Brett Hundley (QB for UCLA for those who don't know), Cameron Jordan, and Adam Archuleta all went to the exact high school they go to, and they had classes with Hundley. A bunch of other scrubs who got NFL opportunities also went to those schools. I have a bunch of friends who go to Kobe's high school.
I have to talk about these because my school has NOBODY .

I thought I'd add this because it's pretty cool. My grandfather went to school with both Jim Brown and Ernie Davis at Syracuse. He was acquaintances with both of them, not exactly good friends, but they still knew each other.

Most "famous" guy from my HS currently plays basketball for IU: Derek Elston Stats, News, Videos, Highlights, Pictures, Bio - Indiana Hoosiers - ESPN

The most famous football player might be my old neighbor, Steve Powelll. He played for a local semi pro after playing at Purdue in the early 90's.

Charles Haley
Gary Clark
Scott Norwood

We had a couple guys get drafted over the last several years, but none really of note. Curtis Keaton was probably the most successful of the bunch (who? yeah, I know...).

U of Delaware grads include:

Rich Gannon, former NFL MVP for 2002
Joe Flacco, current Ravens QB
Mike Adams, current starting CB for the Broncos
Pat Devlin, 3rd string QB for Miami
Gino Gradkowski, Center for the Ravens
Andy Hall, former QB for Philly
Jeff Komlo, former QB for Detroit in the early 80's
Ivory Sully, Safety for the Rams in the late 70's to early 80's


Andy Hall was in a few classes. Quiet dude and not cocky at all.

That's cool, my fellow Duke. I knew a kicker, but he didn't last too long

I bet you'd love to see Charles in the HOF where he belongs
