Allen Iverson was an outstanding basketball player and pound for pound one of the toughest to ever play in the NBA. But he was also a highly touted high school football player at Bethel High School in Hampton, Virginia. He was All-State and Player of the Year in Virginia as a Junior. He played Quarterback, Punt & Kickoff Returner, Runningback, and Safety. At Safety, he had a state record SEVEN interceptions in one game. His HS highlight tape has been making the rounds and holy cow, he's like a mix of Lamar Jackson, Devin Hester, and Ed Reed.
Could Allen Iverson have possibly been a better football player than basketball player? We'll never know for sure.
