Julius Peppers is the biggest freak of nature I can think of.

That guy is like 200 years of evolution before his time.

I have a ton of respect for Allen Iverson as a football player after watching his highlight video on youtube.

Had you not given any stats, I would have said Paulus. However, looking at Peppers' line, he gets my vote.

I don't know Drew Henson's football numbers, but I thought he had the national record for homeruns.

My vote is for Joe Mauer. Amazing HS QB and obviously an amazing catcher.
