Heisman winner: Congratulations to fellow Helix High School alum Reggie Bush on winning the Heisman trophy. Bush's win and, should he choose to go pro, his lock on the No. 1 pick in next year's NFL draft will make my alma mater the answer to a few trivia questions.
What high school has had both a Heisman trophy winner and a Naismith award winner?
What high school had two alums picked No. 1 in the NFL draft in consecutive years?
When Bush's victory was announced this evening, I was at the San Diego Slam basketball extravaganza watching San Diego State stink it up again. A family friend who has a daughter who is one year my senior asked me if I had gone to Helix. I told her I had. Then she asked me if I knew Reggie Bush. I told her no and laughed. She explained that she thought that our time at Helix might have overlapped. I informed her that Reggie graduated from high school 3 years ago and I graduated 15 years ago.
I suppose it's nice that I still have my youthful appearance.
