I played H.S. football and baseball in Ohio and South Florida. I will not divulge my 40 time, bench press, or fastball but I will say that there is a clear difference between athletes in Florida and Ohio. Our Florida team had a ton of sub 4.5 forty athletes (not electronic) and some of them were really good but weren't highly recruited. However, the o-lines in Florida were really weak compared to Ohio. I did find it interesting that the community didn't care much about high school football or athletics in general. It's probably because most of the people were over 60 or they were transplants so there wasn't much community pride. Also, no one cared at all about basketball.
I also lived in Dallas, TX where H.S. football is huge!! Everything really is bigger in TX especially in Dallas.
Nice man, those are all pretty awesome accomplishments. I played a lot of baseball and only played against a few who threw 92 plus. The fact you could do all of those things kind of proves my point that all those achievements belong to a select few who possess exceptional natural ability. I could train In the gym and do plyometrics and perform all of the exercises necessary to improve at those things no doubt improving my time, fastball, and jumping ability. I can guarantee you though that I will never dunk, throw above 90, or run a sub 4.7 forty, I guarantee I could learn to surf though. Running marathons takes a lot of effort, cycling takes a lot of effort, I can train myself to do those things as well as surfing. Kelly Slater may be a better athlete than a lot of baseball players, Greg Maddox included; I just find it hard to believe that surfing has more athletic athletes than Football, soccer, basketball, track and field,gymnastics, etc.
Thanks. I don't really care about my past life in athletics lol. I was only trying to put surfing into perspective because i doubt few have been lucky to try the sport and get into it. I strongly suggest trying it if ever the chance presents itself. But to me personally, surfing by far is the hardest sport ive ever been involved with. Prior to it, I never thought about it. But now, I'm like "damn these guys are amazing athletes.". Easiest sport I've tried would be snowboarding.
If coach would've put you in senior year you would've won State! Haha jk, I don't ever recall seeing a fat, out of shape surfer that's for sure. I get the point you're making as we'll. I love snowboarding and frisbee golf, both suit my athletics abilities very well.
LOL. I think what I like best about snowboarding is you get to ride down the mountain and hop a lift on the way up. No walking required. LOL
I say Urban Meyer thinks there's a ton more talent in the south, and SEC rosters are full of that talent.
I don't give a phuck what anyone else says after the master has spoken. Nobody else knows shit compares to the master who has coaches in both leagues.
Mods - please lock this thread now. There's no room for debate here.
Oh - nobody really cares about basketball - it's what you do when football is not on.
You can't handle the truth
