Talking What is your football experience?

This might not be a purely Saints related topic but we all draw from our experiences when talking about our beloved team. I have been around this forum for quite some time and we often pat eachothers backs around here and believe we have an above average level of analysis and understanding here compared to other forums.

I have gotten increasingly curious about what football experience everybody on here actually have. I tried to make the poll pretty comprehensive but please write a little more about it.

I just realized you're from SWEDEN! I LOVE your women. Can you bring some?

my football experience:
-- high school backup/ bench / utility guy - I was pretty much Rudy of my
school.
-workhorse RB vs. the 1st string every day. actually got a lot of respect
for the role, so I felt like part of the team.

-- Played RB, LB, and also returned punts.
- my h.s. had a losing tradition, but I was lucky enough to play on
2 of their rare winning teams. Very exciting times.

thats all.
grew up rooting for the Oilers. Caught on with the Saints in '83.

We actually ran some single wing in 2010 as a goal line / short yardage offence.

Quit playing in High School to pursue other interests (skateboarding, beer, pot and girls).

A couple of concussions while at John Curtis made it a fairly easy decision.

Re: What is your football experience?

My mother REFUSED to let me play football.

My dad had no other course of action but to listen to my mother.

So I was a baseball/basketball player throughout HS.

Coach softball now and then.

Re: What is your football experience?

I played little league through high school. Went to go walk on at the University of South Alabama and I was flunking so I came back home and got my associates.

I played WR, wing back, safety, and corner with corner being my primary position. My senior year at Ocean Springs High School I gave up less then 100 yards the whole season and 1 TD with around 12 passes defended. No picks, which irks me to this day.

Also played with DeAndre Brown. Idk if y'all remember him, but wish the Saints would sign him. He's the best player I've ever seen in person.
