First off, a friend passed me along this video of a Taylor Hill, a blue-chip girls basketball talent from South High in Minneapolis, making her college commitment the other day with the well-intentioned assistance of some of her friends.
Now for some random links from the world of high-school sports:
- Patrick Schuster, a left-handed pitcher from Florida, has thrown three straight no-hitters. The Florida recruit is halfway to the national record of six.
- Two football teams are planning a replay of a 7-7 tie from a game in 1993. Easton (a team from Pennsylvania) and Phillipsburg (from New Jersey) are rival schools separated by the Delaware River that have played almost annually since 1905. No surprise that it’s a hot ticket.
- Did you hear Jake Plummer is going to be a high-school football coach in Idaho?
- Here’s a look at hazing in prep sports. Something deemed to be quite popular still.
- A baseball player in Iowa lost a year of high-school eligibility after playing in a minor league exhibition game.
- Former Seahawk Brian Bosworth gave CPR to a fallen man after giving a speech at an Oklahoma high school.
- Word out of Arizona is that chants during boys volleyball matches — specifically from Gilbert Highland — are borderline taunting.
- A Chinese high school soccer team has been accused of using junior national team players in a tournament.
- A softball player in Florida suffered a heart attack during a game recently.
- In ESPN national rankings for spring sports, Emerald Ridge softball moves up a couple places. Washington boys soccer teams are also well represented — assisted by the fact that many other states play in the fall and winter.
