Pro/Olympic Athletes from your High School


Recommended Posts

Anyone from your high school played a pro sport or been in the olympics? There have been quite a few from my school and mostly from my era which is pretty cool.

John Gilmore - plays for the Chicago Bears

Kerry Collins - plays for the Oakland Raiders

Kristy Kowal - olympic swimmer

Allison Baver - olympic spead skater (she's skating tonight)

One of the high school teachers was a former WWF wrestler. I have to research this to be sure, but I think he was Hill Billy Jim.
