4 Tim Brown – Former WR and one of the best of his era.

5 Ernie Banks – Hall-of-Famer. Mr Cub paved the way for Shortstops in the MLB.

6 Matthew Stafford – Pro-Bowl QB and high school teammate of Clayton Kershaw

7 Clayton Kershaw – SP and perhaps the greatest lefthanded pitcher of all-time.

8 Jordan Spieth – Pro Golfer and on the rise as one of the best in the game.

Honorable mentions: Michael Johnson, Lee Trevino, Doak Walker, Bobby Layne

Honorable stat: For one-year, former High School teammates Clayton Kershaw and Matthew Stafford were the highest paid athletes in their respective sports. The statistical chances of that being possible are barely there, but it happened. Think it was something in the water down there?
