Thats pretty hilarious. Only teacher left from when he was there is Saffer, or at least the only one that had him as a student I think. A couple of other notable people from our area are Brevin Knight (went to Seton Hall Prep but lived in my town), Harlen Coben who is an author, and David Tepper who is rich as hell and has a daughter in my grade, the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon is named after him, Byron Scott lived here and his daughter went to my school but he moved after he became the coach of the Hornets, and Marty Brodeur lived here for a little while.

Better than mine. So far my classmates have achieved:

- getting their mugshot shown on National TV (with a bar to cover the eyes and his last name shortened to one initial, this is holland, we have privacy)

- being on a tv show that talks about sex and drugs, he was the anonymous **** some stoned chick gave head to, to see if a blowjob is better when the girl is stoned (dutch tv, don't ask)

that's about it. I'm so proud of them.

I was wondering if any of you guys played with or against any body worth mentioning during your highschool career. The only person I played against was a DE named brian bulcke who is now playing for Stanford but as a MLB. He has great size for a MLB (6'4' 260 lbs) and although he only started one game this season he made the most of it by making 14 tackles against Navy (lol). When i played against him i was left OT and he was playing DE against me, and i even pancaked him ounce or twice :)
