Do you know a HS football idol?
High school football usually isn’t the place that sports fans find their idols.
Those larger-than-life figures are usually come from the college and the professional ranks. That’s where you find the Michael Jordans and the Walter Paytons, the Adrian Petersons and the Kevin Durants.
But the truth is, there are plenty of idols in high school football, young men who show determination and provide inspiration.
I’m looking for one of those youngsters. I want to tell the story of a high school football idol in our annual football preview, and it can’t just be someone who’s really good or amazingly talented. No, this needs to be a young man who we should all idolize for reasons other than football ability.
Perhaps he’s overcome great odds. Maybe he’s demonstrated outstanding character. And just maybe, he’s done it without anyone noticing — an unsung idol who deserves to have his story told.
Oh, we’ll tell the stories of the players who are idols because of their football prowess. Rest assured, DeMarco Cobbs and Bronson Irwin and Co. will not be overlooked. But if you know a high school football idol whose name isn’t well-known or whose story isn’t oft-told, I would love to hear about him.
