I also had a look at Tom Glavine's numbers in high school hockey. 94 points in 23 games....ykes.

and Dave Winfield really surprised me too...what he couldn't play hockey?

I would look no further than Bo Jackson. He dominated two sports. Its one thing to make it to the pros and contribute but this man was amazing at two sports.

Something missed in the article was about Wilt. Wasn't Wilt a dominate pro volleyball player? An MVP even?

Hakeem was the top goalkeeping prospect in Nigeria

Elway - At Stanford he hit .361 with nine home runs and 50 RBIs in 49 games as a sophomore. After that he was the first pick of the Yankees in 1981. He hit .314 with a club-high 24 homers with the Yankees' single-A farm club.

Jim Brown - is also a Hall of Fame Lacrosse player; some consider him the greatest lacrosse player of all time. In fact, he got his scholarship to Syracuse as a lacrosse player and walked onto the football team.
He led Syracuse's lacrosse team to an undefeated season in 1957, leading the country in scoring

Deion Sanders is the only man ever to play in both the Super Bowl and the World Series, and he is the only man ever to hit a home run and score a touchdown in the same week.


I remember Peppers and Gates were good basketball players
and we can forget about Nash and his soccer skillz

Thorpe is #1 though
