High School -- 3 years football, end (most of the time I played Guard -- sat on the end of the bench so I could guard the water bucket)

Broke my collar bone playing football my senior year and had to give up baseball as could not throw overhand. Started playing fast pitch softball and pitched on club team in college, in Army and league play until I was 45. I can't even get the ball to the play anymore.

Now to be more specific re the title of this thread -- "Were you an athlete". No, but I thought I was.

By the way, I'll be posting some stories about High School football in the 1930's in the near future on the above forums.

A huge three sport athlete -

Baseball - playing sandlot ball one day I got picked second overall (it should be noted that future Babe Ruth league standout Perry Cheeves had the measles that day, however.).

Basketball - beat my older brother playing "Horse" one day after school. He had to buy me a Pepsi, which gave me "Professional" status (no longer a high ranking amateur). My patented, trademark backwards over the head shot from the foul line did it for me.

Football - scored a touchdown when playing with then fiancee's (now wife's) little brothers and sisters after Sunday lunch one day in their front yard. It was a great broken field run - her fat little sister couldn't lay a hand on me..... shoulder feign to the left, stutter steps then a blast to the right. Faked her out of her patent leather with the bows high heels and XX Husky panty hose. Luckily for her, as she fell headlong onto the lawn, it was the really thick part - that always grows just over the septic tank.
