I learned this morning that 49ers quarterback Alex Smith and former USC baller Reggie Bush were on the same team in high school. Smith, who was born in Seattle, attended Helix High School in San Diego along with Bush.
The team went 25-1 with Alex Smith at quarterback and won two championships. With Bush at running back and punt returner, they averaged a ho hum 50 points per game. Bush would later perfect these same duties at USC, the Saints and now the Dolphins.
In 2004 when Reggie was at USC and Alex at Utah, both were nominated as Heisman finalists, the first time in history two players from the same high school were included in the ceremony.
If you have a minute, check out this video of them in high school. They were teammates in the year 2000, but this video looks like it was edited on VHS. Stick with it, it's worth it.
(7 other professionsal athletes, Arian Foster, Kellen Winslow II, Cole Hamels, Jared Dudley, Tony Gwynn Jr., Luke Walton and Khalif Barnes were also attending San Diego high schools at this time.)
