Know anyone in the NFL?

Postby Plindsey88 » Fri Oct 15, 2004 11:27 am

Hey, my brother picked up Boo Williams on his fantasy team yesterday, and it got us talkin about folks that we know who play in the NFL now... We knew Eddie (Boo) Williams in high school, and let me tell you that guy was a real scumbag... He got thrown out of school one year after he was accused of raping a girl, but I think the charges were dropped when the HIGH SCHOOL football team suffered because of it... Anyways, my brother reluctantly had to pick him up this week to cover a bye, and was not at all pleased with himself for placing his fantasy team above his own moral objection.... But, that's not the point of this thread...

How many of you know people that play in the NFL? I was just curious to see...

Personally, I know Boo Williams and Zack Piller (lineman - Tennesssee) from high school, and Brad Johnson was my middle school PE coach for a semester, and I tutored Samari Rolle for a while in college...

I was just curious to see how many other folks knew players...

i play soccer against kurt schultz (former bills/lions saftey). he is good. and big. well, bigger than me. he pound me around when we play. he's a good guy though, very nice.
Steve Christie also plays in my league although i don't really know him as he plays in the lower division. i heard he has a rocket shot though. (as one would assume)

Nick Goings - RB CAR - this guy is a real jackass. He is from the same city as me (a couple years older) and when I was like a sophomore in HS and he was playing at OSU, he and a couple of his friends came to our local rec center to play basketball. My friends and I were playing and they got in the game. I ended up guarding him and after I scored on him a couple times, he decided I needed a wake up call. So the next time I shot, he absolutely drilled me. I called a foul, and he got pissed, so I said something back and he asked if I wanted to 'take this outside.' Im like, yeah lets do that, b/c you and your friends would totally kick my ass and are twice as big as me, and youre mad about a mean-nothing basketball game against people 4 years younger than you. I hate him (I obviously didnt take it outside)


Donnie Nickey - S TEN - Pretty cool kid. He was in one of my majors at OSU and had a bunch of classes together and talked to him pretty regularly.

I don't know anyone in the NFL :(

The biggest sports celebrity I know is Chris Paul (PG for Wake Forest basketball). Had some classes with him in high school and occasionally talk to him on AIM.
