VIDEO: Chargers QB Philip Rivers was also a HS DB, and had at least one INT

The things you learn on the internet. Not only was Chargers All-Pro quarterback Philip Rivers a star quarterback in high school, he was also a legitimate, contributing defensive back. And he could actually play.
Buried behind other, more notable highlights from a random 1999 two-game sampling of Athens (Ala.) High School Golden Eagles snow jobs is a pretty solid interception by Rivers. The play was first unearthed by Boston.com sports writer Hayden Bird, who gets all the credit for going the extra mile to find Rivers doing something unusual that doesn’t involve a bolo tie or converted van:

Random discovery: Philip Rivers played defensive back in high school, and actually made at least one interception. His speed appears to have remained about the same over the years. pic.twitter.com/cqMHiNh5AQ

Now, we don’t know if Rivers started at defensive back or if he was just used in some nickel and dime packages and as a reserve. Whichever, he did an impressive job high pointing this pass by a quarterback for Austin High School (Decatur, Ala.) and then attempted to return it to the end zone.
That didn’t go as well. To call Rivers’ return “horse-like” would be apt. It’s not that he can’t run, it’s just that, well, he’s not very fast and it looks more like a canter than a full-blown run. No one has ever confused Philip Rivers for a dual-threat quarterback.
There’s plenty of more Rivers highlights buried among this YouTube video, which is absolutely of the pre-modern YouTube error, so it’s pixelation can be forgiven. Among the other interesting notes from the 1999 Athens Golden Eagles: Rivers’ running back, Mario Stanley, went on to play at UAB, another running back, Michale Troupe, eventually played for the Louisville Cardinals (as a defensive back) and wide receiver Von Webb played his position for Memphis. That’s a pretty strong high school team!

As celebrities ask for clemency for Maori Davenport's suspension, Alabama HSAA refuses to back down

The celebrity heat on the Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA) continues to rise after the AHSAA’s season-long suspension of star Henderson High School (Troy, Ala.) girls basketball player Maori Davenport. But even now, with NBA All-Star DeMarcus Cousins and ESPN commentator Jay Bilas coming to Davenport’s defense, the AHSAA has refused to consider granting an exception that would allow Davenport to return for her senior season.
RELATED: USA Basketball payment could cost a top HS basketball player her season
Davenport is a five-star center for Henderson who has signed to play at Rutgers. As reported here and elsewhere, Henderson was suspended for the season after she received a payment of just less than $900 for her travel with USA Basketball this summer.

What the Alabama High School Athletic Association has done to Maori Davenport is wrong on so many levels that I don't know where to start. I know what this feels like because I was treated like shit by them too. Being a kid from Alabama, I'm with Maori Davenport. Fix this now!
— DeMarcus Cousins (@boogiecousins) January 5, 2019

While that payment was small enough to escape NCAA punishment, it was still a violation of the AHSAA’s amateur rule. That detail escaped the focus of USA Basketball because Davenport is one of the only members of the team that still had high school eligibility.
Of course, now she doesn’t, thanks to that $857.20 check for lost wages, even though the check was returned in full to the NCAA. And despite Cousins’ support and an op-ed written by Bilas for ESPN on her behalf, the AHSAA is refusing to reconsider it’s stance.
Part of that organizational obstinance is grounded in the circumstances surrounding Davenport herself. As reported by AL.com, Davenport’s mother is a certified Alabama basketball coach, and Henderson’s head coach is a former member of the AHSAA Central Board of Control. As the Board of Control noted in a lengthy statement to the media, “she should not only appreciate the importance of knowing and following the AHSAA bylaws and eligibility rules but also understand how imperative it is to consistently uphold the same rules.”
And while public outcry continues to demand Davenport’s return, AHSAA has also noted that its bylaws prohibit Executive Director Steve Savarese from making such a move himself. Rather, the appellate process is needed to overturn any ruling, including the one Savarese had to make regarding Davenport because her payment violated the amateur clause.

Those appeals have now been exhausted, and nothing has changed.
Anyone holding out hope for a change in heart or policy from the AHSAA Central Board of Control may also feel downtrodden after reading this section from its statement to the media:

“It should be pointed out that a high school student from Illinois also received payment from USA Basketball. However, that student called her high school once she received the check and then returned the check to USA Basketball without cashing or depositing it. Here, the student received the check, endorsed it and it was posted to her bank account. Three months later, AHSAA was notified and the monies returned to USA Basketball.
“A high school student from Missouri has also been ruled ineligible for this basketball season for accepting the lost wages payment from USA Basketball.
“USA Basketball never called Charles Henderson High School or AHSAA to ask if payment for lost wages violated AHSAA rules until November which was three months after payment was made and accepted by the student. This was not a clerical error but a complete lack of administrative oversight on the part of USA Basketball, thus possibly rendering multiple student-athletes ineligible as most states have an Amateur Rule.”
One note here: USA Basketball reached out to USA Today to report that the ineligible player in Missouri mentioned above is actually being held out because of concerns about her transfer between schools, not because of accepting any payment from USA Basketball.
The moral of the story? If anyone extends a high school athlete money, they must make sure it’s allowed, regardless of the legitimacy of the organization behind it. In the short run, that means we have almost certainly seen the last of Maori Davenport’s brilliant high school career.
Davenport averaged 18.2 points, 12 rebounds and 5.1 blocks per game as a junior. With USA Basketball over summer, she started four of six games. She was also selected to the ALL-USA Preseason Girls Basketball team entering this season.

Twenty-six of the 32 coaches in the Texas football playoffs earn more than $100,000 per year

The latest report on Texas high school football coaching salaries is particularly timely, with the state playoffs entering the quarterfinal round this weekend. With that framework in mind, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram took a look at the salary of each coach still leading their respective teams in the Class 5A and 6A playoffs.
Given two divisions within each classification, that makes for 32 head coaches. And the results are pretty startling: Of those 32 coaches, 26 earn more than $100,000 per year, and the other six are very close.
Per the Star-Telegram, only one coach still alive in the playoffs has an annual salary of less than $90,000; Beaumont West Brook’s Eric Peevey, who is paid $86,000.
For the record, the two highest salaries both come from powerhouse programs out of Austin: Lake Travis’ Hank Carter is paid $158,512 while Westlake’s Todd Dodge earns an even $150,000.
Terry Gambill, the coach at Super 25 No. 1 ranked Allen, earns $125,365 per year, only the third-highest in Class 6A Div. 1 and sixth highest across both divisions of Class 6A.
The Texas salaries paint a stark comparison to a similar study taken of coaches of the Alabama teams competing for state titles at that state’s Super 7 event.
According to AL.com, three coaches at the very top end of Alabama’s highest classifications earn salaries that are similar to their Texas counterparts, ranging from $112,000 to $129,000. The story is far different lower down, where some coaches were leading their programs while only being paid a traditional coach’s stipend, as little as $7,345, with a top range full salary of $92,000.
Naturally, that’s nothing to shake a stick at, but the disparity within the salary range in Alabama is perhaps the striking take away from both exercises. The top range salaries for the mega-programs in Alabama may still be eye opening, but in Texas, the salaries at all successful programs are eye opening, and that’s before one considers the relative pittance paid the average public school teacher statewide.

Four-star Lausanne running back Eric Gray decommits from Michigan

Lausanne running back Eric Gray has decommitted from Michigan. The four-star RB made the announcement on Twitter Saturday morning.
“The University of Michigan gave me an incredible opportunity to be a part of an excellent program,” wrote Gray in the tweet. “However at this time I feel it’s best for me and my family to re-open my recruitment and de-commit from the university.”
The 5-foot-10, 195-pound senior is the No. 3 all-purpose back and No. 8 overall prospect in Tennessee according to the 247Sports composite.
Gray said on Sunday that he plans to visit two of the following three schools before signing day: Ole Miss, Alabama, and Texas A&M.

Please respect my decision. Thank you pic.twitter.com/0paTQfaY4k

“More than likely it will be Ole Miss and Alabama, and if not Alabama it will be Ole Miss and Texas A&M,” Gray said Sunday at the Tennessee Titans Mr. Football awards in Nashville.
He was scheduled to visit Texas A&M on Nov. 24, but canceled because of a scheduling conflict with Mr. Football.
Gray has taken official visits to Michigan, Penn State, and Tennessee.
In addition to his official visit, Gray has made two unofficial visits to Tennessee. One on Oct. 20 when the Vols hosted Alabama, and the other on Nov. 17 when the Vols played Missouri. Gray was initially supposed to visit Michigan during the weekend of Nov. 17, but canceled the trip to go see the Vols.

“I think he’s doing well. He’s got the right coaches,” said Gray of Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt on Nov. 17. “He just has to get his players in there.”
Gray committed to Michigan on July 1. As the season went on, his commitment began to waver over growing concerns about going to school so far away from Memphis.
“It’s the travel and my mom getting there,” Gray told USA Today Network on Nov. 17. “It’s not the only school I can do what I need to do.”

Injury behind him,, 4-star DE Khris Bogle honored to be named to All-American Bowl

Cardinal Gibbons (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) defensive end Khris Bogle received his All-American Bowl jersey Tuesday at his school as part of the All-American Bowl Selection Tour presented by American Family Insurance.
“It’s a great experience,” Bogle told USA TODAY before Tuesday’s ceremony. “I woke up this morning with bubble guts in my stomach, because I’m an All-American. This is just a dream come true, watching the game for the past few years, and finally getting an experience to go up there and show the world what I’m all about.”
The 6-foot-4, 200-pound Bogle is ranked by 247 Sports as the seventh-best overall prospect in Florida, and the third-best defensive end in the country, by its composite rankings.

Bogle started the season off with a knee injury that kept him sidelined for the first month. But since he’s returned to the lineup, he’s been a force off the edge; in five games for the Chiefs, who continue their 5A playoff run Friday against Jones (Orlando), Bogle has recorded 28 tackles (8.5 for loss), six sacks, two passes defensed and two fumble recoveries.
Among other things, the shifty Bogle has shown marked improvement at converting speed to power when it comes to pass rushing:

“Our defense is going to carry us to state this year,” Bogle declared. “If our defense can hold opponents to just a touchdown or two, we’ll win for sure.”
Bogle will be making his decision at the All-American Bowl when it commences Jan. 5. He took his third official visit to Alabama this past weekend, to go with previous visits to Texas A&M and Tennessee. He says he’ll definitely be making an official to Miami in early December; the last official will be either Ole Miss, Florida or Oklahoma. Wherever he ends up, he wants to make sure he’s going to a school with a great business program.
Of course, living in a part of South Florida that bleeds Miami Hurricane football — Bogle himself says he grew up rooting for Oregon — those external pressures can be tense.
“Even last night, when I came back [from Alabama], the first thing I did was go to my auntie’s house with my mom to talk about school,” Bogle said. “My auntie wants me to go to Miami, but my mom, she’s undecided right now. We’ve just got to take it day by day.”
The All-American Bowl is scheduled for Jan. 5 in the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas and will be televised live on NBC at 1 p.m. EST.
