Who's your school's best player of all time?

He was good but not the best. He is top 5 probably

After thinking about it my top 5 would look something like this

Durso- two way player and was key in the first playoff run
Lou A- he really started it all.
Jake A- great all around player
A norwell- best o lineman and teams had to plan for him
Slater/Rod tie, both meant a lot to the great runs

I do not think Rod belongs in the conversation. Yes he played a big role but the 09 was possible better with out him.

QB of the 07 Championship team and 08 runner up, I know he had Storey and Trusdell, but he still lead the team to the promise land.

And I am saying I think he was a vital cog on that team but not a top 5 all time player. Hypothetically I think you could slide a few qbs into that slot and have the same results. First one that comes to mind is Kenny Riddell.

Also by the time he is done Volpenhein is going to be inside the top 5.

For GlenOak, Glenwood, the best overall would be NFL HOFer Dan Dierdorf for high school only it would be Brian'te Dunn,the 4th quarter belonged to him.

Nice call CVC....

In addition to probably being the best football player from GA....

Gilmour's Eric Penick did win the 100, 200 & 400 Ohio state titles in 1971....he is a legend in Ohio HS track history.

He was for sure one of the top players on Notre Dame's National Title football team in 1973 was it?

ND gave the ball to several RBs that year but in that era Penick was feared as the opponents knew one slip and he was GONE.

He is known as one of the fastest players in ND history.

At Cleveland St Joseph/VASJ, the top high school career goes to Desmond Howard. Edging out Desmond with the top overall career with a Superbowl Ring, 16 NFL seasons, and 215 career starts (only 4 players with 200 starts) goes to London Fletcher. Desmond Howard with a Heisman, Superbowl Ring, and Superbowl MVP is a close second. Bob Golic and Mike Golic come in #3 and #4.

This thread is about the players that performed best while IN high school - not about what they did afterward.

Having said that, I don't know if he was the best all-around player (we've had a whole lot of good players), but one I loved to watch (or even just listen about on the internet stream) was Danny Milligan. I think he kicked off, punted, kicked field goals and extra points, returned kicks of all kinds, played receiver, and washed the coaches' cars in between plays. But seriously, that kid did things on the football field that you thought about doing in pick-up games, but didn't because you knew something that crazy wouldn't work - and he made them work. I remember one team was punting and he didn't initially field the kick, so the other team was just letting it roll till it stopped, he waited till it had almost stopped rolling, saw an opportunity to run in and pick it up and so he tried, maybe just thinking he would get it a few yards closer to start the drive, and wound up returning it for a score because nobody expected him to do that at that point of the play.

Yeah, but the original poster also basically described Mechanicsburg's best player as Mr. Woodcock (from the movie).

"Led" credits probably go to the QB Clements but here's a nice clip of Penick

I think you have to look at overall production on both sides of the ball, when coming up with an all time greatest list. If you take into account college accolades then it may put Moore to the top of the list. But I believe Christy was an all-American at Dayton as well. Check out the record books Mogadorefootball.com and it will shed some light on overall production both offensively and defensively.

From Stow high school, Larry Csonka. Pro Football HOF, NFL MVP, Super Bowl MVP, NCAA HOF. Ironically, not the best player on his own high school baseball team. That would be Kip Koski, qb who was local player of the year, and went on to Illinois.

I thought you was going to say ironically not the best on his high school football team, which could happen. But because you're all world in one sport doesn't mean diddly to another sport.
