I thought this would be a fun thread. who is the best player you ever played against or with. not watched but actually played against. I would have to say senaca wallace from the seahawks and logan mankins from the pats. Senaca wallace is the best athlete i have seen in person amazing speed. matt hasselbeck said in an interview that wallace is the best athlete on the team.

Well for any of you old school NFL fans, I got to play catch with Bob Hayes once. Obviously not game related, but it was a really good memory.

 

In a competitive nature in football I really don't have any. For basketball I played against Chuck Hayes in some basketball tournies in high school. Chuck Hayes started all 4 years at the University of Kentucky and now starts for the Houston Rockets in the NBA.

rick watters. the kid had unbelievable talent. noone could catch him. funny thing is that he was so little and skinny that i was afraid if anyone did catch him, they would kill him. he was a few years younger than me and he dominated the cyo league where i grew up. reneg, what kinda shape was bob in when you played catch?? if i remember correctly, he died a pretty sick man. wow, fastest man in the world at one time. i'm looking at his football card right now. it's in a framed collection i have on my wall. i loved watching him play..............

Josh Smith in the 2000 Class A State Championship. We won the game and kept him from breaking the National High School Scoring Record. He finished his senior year at Attica with 3004 rushing yards. He went on to be a force at Navy and was team captain 2 or 3 years there.

I guess it would be my cousin Mickey Schad in Tennis. Mick went on to be in the Kentucky Hall of fame and Pro Coach at Bellermine University here.

 

He was a St Xavier guy I was Flaget HS. At Flaget we had Roddy McNerney also great. I got into it for the tan, like Mick had and those white outfits which attracted girls. I was waaaaaay out of my league, they busted my butt on the courts. Anyone that tells you that by playing the best competition improves your own game is a liar.

 

It did draw me into a more sedate bowling game for which I received a sanctioned 300 game by ABC, but that's a story for another time.

 

I was really good at spinning my racket and using it to pop up a loose ball on the court into my hand. Man I looked professional at those two things till we started an actual game. Ahahahah. :roll: :lol:

Welcome to DD dylan :o Nice to see you here posting.

 

Gad if I was terrible at Tennis you ain't seen me play alley ball in hoops. A slow, white screw up jumper was my middle name. :lol: In base ball it was.."Don't swing at anything, let him walk you."

played against a lot of great guys but here are the best:

 

With: Jeff Samardijza, Abram Elam

 

Against: Anquan Boldin, Devin Hester, Dustin Pedroia, Chad Cordero

 

Did you play against Boldin in 03 PJack? I liked the 02 game much better. Can't stand Pedrioa (Yanks fan), but he will be special for years, hate to say it.

 

I played a pickup game of hoops with TJ Duckett while he was in HS. Needless to say I wasn't about to cover that guy.

You guys realize what we are all saying here is we are losers. :lol: Ok let me re phrase that. We provided competition to let these winners hone their game some. :lol:
