Well Joe Mauer is a helluva catcher for the Minnesota Twins. I guess you could count McPherson who I believe is in Arena ball?

He's in A2 (I think), which is AFL's NFLE

But that must mean Mauer never panned out

Nah, he's not with Quincy Carter and the gang in a2. He's with the Grand Rapids Rampage in Arena 'ball.

Well obviously that meant Mauer didn't pan out, ;) just saying. . . .

Okie dokie, I know McPherson is one of the league's leading rushers right?
But then again FB's in the AFL (They dont have HB's) dont run much

It wasn't that Mauer didn't pan out, it was that he was selected #1 overall in the baseball draft right out of HS so he never got the opportunity to play football.

Actually Bobby Bowden pleaded with Mauer to play and claims he "still has a scholarship with his name on it" (joke obviously) but apparently he was unreal. Rumor has it he's decent at baseball too.

Paulus should've played football, because he couldn't possibly be worse at than he is at basketball.

I'm inclined to agree with you. You ever see his flop that was completely off?

I believe Mauer was the Gatorade National Player of the Year in both sports his senior year in high school. Actually got to see him play against my HS in the state qualifying games. I think his senior year he never played the 2nd half of any game because they were already running up the score.

My roommate went to high school with him. In high school, Mauer was the number one baseball prospect in the country, arguably the best QB prospect (slated to start as a freshman for FSU), and was an all-state point guard. From what I've been told, he is just an incredibly naturally talented athlete in kind of an old school way. He wasn't a "freak" in being way bigger/stronger/more explosive than everyone else ala Lebron James (though he still obviously is in like the 99th percentile), but his natural coordination and feel for athletics is crazy.

04-03-2008, 01:23 AM
During his senior season as the Raiders' quarterback, Mauer completed 241 of 288 passes for 5,022 yards and 61 touchdowns with only two interceptions and finished his two-year career as a starter with 5,528 yards and 73 touchdowns.[2] He led the Raiders to two consecutive Class 5A state championship game appearances, winning the title in 1999, and once threw 15 touchdown passes in a single playoff game against the Hopkins Royals. Mauer was named Gatorade's National Player of the Year, Parade and USA Today Player of the Year and a Reebok/ESPN High School All-American.

Mauer was also named "National High School Quarterback Of The Year" in 2000 by The National Quarterback Club.[6] He was also named to the All-State team during his final two years on Cretin-Derham's basketball team.[6] However, he turned down a football scholarship from Florida State University to enter the Major League Baseball Draft.
