  • The Truth About Injuries In High School Sports (Infographic)

    The Truth About Injuries In High School Sports (Infographic)

    If I told you that boy’s football was the sport responsible for the most injuries among high school athletes, you probably wouldn’t be all that surprised.  However, you may be somewhat shocked to hear that female cheerleading is responsible for the second most injuries among high school athletes, and the most among all female athletes […]

  • “Piggyback Bandit” Has Been Banned In Five States

    “Piggyback Bandit” Has Been Banned In Five States

    There is a man who has been going around high schools in America seeking piggyback rides from student athletes.  His name is Sherwin Shayegan, but most people now refer to him as “The Piggyback Bandit” (No. 22 in the image above). His antics began back in 2008, when he used to appear at basketball, hockey, […]

    South African Flash Card Cheerleading Is Pretty Cool (Video)

    Are these South African cheer squads (anyone know what the official term is?) among the best cheer squads in the world?  Sure, they may not have the sex appeal of American cheerleaders, but what the South African cheerleaders lack in sex appeal, they surely make up for in creativity and precision. Just check out the […]

    High School Basketball Player Scores Game-Winning Basket For The Other Team (Video)

    Most high school athletes dream of doing something great that will get them some recognition among their peers, like scoring the game-winning basket for their school’s basketball team.  Ryan Potocnik of Charlotte Christian High School had his dream come true recently, when he scored the game-winning basket during the 2012 Hilton Invitational in Norcross, Georgia.  […]

  • Basketball Player Drains Miracle Shot In His Own Basket (Video)

    Basketball Player Drains Miracle Shot In His Own Basket (Video)

    During a high school basketball game between two schools whose names I am unaware of, a player made a shot that will likely land him on several highlight packages around America…for all the wrong reasons. While this young man did display an abundance of heart as he chased down a loose ball out of bounds, […]

  • Moses Parts The Red Sea At A High School Basketball Game (Video)

    Moses Parts The Red Sea At A High School Basketball Game (Video)

    Taylor University’s “Silent Night Game” is cool.  John Brown University’s “Toilet Paper Game” is even cooler.  But in my opinion, both pale in comparison to Lawrence Central Catholic High’s pre-game “parting of the Red Sea.” Prior to each of their home games, the students in the “Red Sea fan group” simulate a giant body of […]

    High School Footballer Petey Williams Performs Unreal Juke (Video)

    A couple of weeks ago a video began surfacing on ESPN’s SportsCenter, among other sports shows and websites, which featured Wake Forest-Rolesville punt returner Petey Williams limboing his way out of a tackle during a game against Leesville Rd.  It looked quite incredible then, but now new footage of “the juke heard round America” has […]

    High School Football Streaker Can’t Escape The Cops (Video)

    After watching streakers make their way onto the field and run around for what seems like an eternity during professional sports matches, you would think that anyone who has the guts to run around the field naked during a high school football game would be able to make an easy escape and avoid being arrested […]

  • Chest-Bumping A Kicker Isn’t The Best Idea (Video)

    Chest-Bumping A Kicker Isn’t The Best Idea (Video)

    Chest-bumping your 69-year-old offensive line coach who has a bad hip and uses a cane isn’t the best of ideas, but it tends to work out a lot better than chest-bumping your high school kicker following a touchdown as he makes his way onto the field for the extra point. Poor guy never saw it […]

    How’s This For An Amazing Punt Return? (Video)

    I haven’t seen a punt return like this in the NFL since the days of Dante Hall (what ever happened to that guy anyways?). With the NFL season opening tonight, we are bound to see our fair share of highlight reel plays, but don’t count on seeing anything quite like what you are about to […]

    Watch A Cheerleader Get Run Over By A High School Football Player (Video)

    Football players across America have spent the past week shaking off the rust and dusting off their shoulder pads, as both the high school and college seasons kicked off for most of the country’s schools.  However, the players weren’t the only ones shaking off the rust.  The cheerleading squads from various schools found themselves doing […]
