In high school, I played against a couple of now-UM football players. I was wondering if anyone else has had that honor as well. Any sport, any era.
I played Kelvin Grady when he was a HB at East Grand Rapids. Tough matchup for a white kid playing MLB. At least it wasn't Kevin.
I also played Prince Obi, but it was in rugby. I was also roughly matched up against him, I believe I was inside center and he was outside center. At one point, I was passed the ball and saw him barreling toward me (it's easier to read plays in rugby than football). Fearing for my life, I no-look hospital-passed away the ball as quickly as I could. Too late. I got laid out, driven back, and all-around wrecked. Cool thing is, Obi asked me if I was okay after the hit. When I regained consciousness 20 minutes later, I told him I was.
