First thought was Curry. He was a Top 5 recruit in both FB and BB. Mauer is my 2nd place vote.

Ronald Curry was the best 2-sport prospect coming out of high school. Joe Mauer is the one guy who I think would have been a great collegiate player and pro in whichever sport he chose to focus on.

Josh Booty set the national passing record and was drafted by the Marlins, getting a WS Ring before coming back and being All SEC at LSU.

Curry was the first name that came to mind though.

Booty was the 8th player taken in the MLB draft while he threw for 11,700 yards and 126 touchdowns, becoming the first high school player in history to throw for more than 10,000 yards (despite missing the last four games of his senior year because of a broken hand). Booty was named the USA Today Offensive Player of the Year and was named the National High School Player of the Year by at least six associations, including Parade and the Football News. #1 rated QB in Louisiana the same year Peyton was a senior.

But I if I had to choose it would Mauer, since he went #1.

National player of the year in 2 sports would have to make him the correct answer.

Adrian McPherson


Mr. Football & Mr. Basketball in Florida.


Only athlete to ever accomplish that. He also won the state championship in baseball. The guy threw for 42 TDs his senior year.....there aren't many more accomplished high school athletes who possess his skill/athleticism.

Forgot about him. Can't believe he's already been out of the NFL for 4 years now.

Mauer is really close to these two. Big Baby was a top 25 recruit in 2 sports as well.

State player of the year in both baseball and football. I believe an All-American in both as well.

8th overall pick in the NFL draft

Would've gone at least in the top 15 (likely top 10) in the MLB draft out of high school had he not told scouts to not draft him.
