The more pictures I see of Munger the more I can't believe he is in high school. Could you imagine lining up agains him? It makes me think of the most intimidating guys I ever lined up against. I played 1 year of ball at Ohio U before transferring to OSU but to this day I will never forget a sefety for the West Rangers (little league) named Monte Felix. He was at least a foot taller and probably 5 years older than anyone else on the field. The entire league was scared on him! My old friends still talk about him 40 years later.

"5 foot 8.....what do they want a basketball team?"
After junior high, I stopped playing football and baseball to play golf. So I never really had to face kids like u see now. I would day the most imposing guy I faced in that time was our #1 pitcher on our junior high team. His arm was way ahead of kids that age. His fastball was a good 10 to 15 mph faster than anyone we faced. We only faced him when we did simulated situations in practice, but he could bring the heat. He had over 200 strikeouts the last junior high season, I think we maybe played 20 or so games. He pretty much focused on playing quarterback after junior high, but could of been a hell of a pitcher.
My Sophmore year in highschool i made "scrub time" against Upper Arlington when we were bouncing them out of the playoffs. I wont forget Simon Fraser walking up to take his last snaps as a senior against a sophmore in scrub time....
yes i paid for it
I thought UA won the state title his senior year?
you are correct, it must have been another year... either way last play of season from a very angry very large guy
Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
late 90's Southern California All stars (AAU outfit) featuring Tyson Chandler, Tayshaun Prince, Josh Childress, and a host of elite high majors and fringe NBA players. We lost...badly...in case you were wondering.

I played against a few D1 players in High School. Not many. But the one that gave me the most fits I don't think ever ended up playing D1 ball. He was Jason Granger out of Farmington Hills, MI (Harrison HS) in the mid 90's (1994 I believe). Kid was $1.45 soaking wet and was maybe 5'5". But the most slippery SOB in the open field I have ever faced. Ran in the high 4.3's I think. I don't remember. But dude had every move in the book and we just couldn't catch the kid. He was infuriating in the open field. I'm not sure what happened with his career. I'm certain it wasn't as a football player. He was way too small. He likely went on to run track somewhere.
I'm all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with typewriters.

Worthington Summer League played against Ken Johnson and Calving Booth. That is a tall order (literally) for a 6'6" player. Also played against Scoonie, Michael Redd, and Greg Simpson (amongst other OSU players). They were all pretty good.
Jim Thorpe. He was a beast.
