It's the end of the decade, so the Internet is kneedeep in listville. Max Preps takes a whack at the All-Decade high school team.
The list itself — with the usual suspects Tim Tebow, Reggie Bush and Adrian Peterson — is not all that titillating (there's way too much emphasis on college and professional success for supposed high school list) but the comment thread is.
Readers have taken up the cause for erstwhile Albermarle legend T.A. McLendon. Noted for his inability to take care of the ball at N.C. State, there's no denying McLendon's high school prowess (178 touchdowns).
Come on, Max Preps, give "Touchdown Anytime" his due.
Another interesting nominee is former Wake slinger Ben Benjamin Mauk, who tore up the Ohio record book. This list would have been a thousand times better had they thrown in a few high-school heroes, who either didn't get it done in college or never got to the NFL.
