Ready to continue with the game he loved, Heisman immediately got his first coaching job at Oberlin College and lead them to an undefeated 7-0 record in only the second year of the football program. His coaching career ultimately spanned more than three decades (1892-1927) with the most impressive stint coming at Georgia Tech (1904-1919) where his Golden Tornados won an astonishing 33 straight wins. Other colleges John coached at included: Auburn, Clemson, University of Pennsylvania, Washington and Rice. Like the other great coaches of this era, Heisman also made some very significant contributions to the game of football.

To play varsity football for any high school showcases a significant level of skill and athleticism. It is the highest tier of competition in high school and its success is measured by state championships and playoff appearances. To be on the varsity football team, a student must be an upperclassman or have the skill set to compete at this high level. As a freshman, the coaches believed I had the skill and athleticism to start at the linebacker position for the last game of Valley View’s season. Representing my school by playing for the varsity football team was surreal to me.
He was named the Rookie of the Year in 2006, which began a career that includes five consecutive All-Star game appearances from '08 until now, named twice to the All-NBA first team, and two Olympic gold medals with team USA (NBA.com: Chris Paul bio). In a game that is generally dominated by the taller and stronger players, Chris Paul exemplifies how the game should be played 'below the rim' so to speak. Peyton Manning is an NFL quarterback for the Denver that is known for making his career based off being intellectually on another level in his sport, making up for his lack of speed and athleticism with precision and seeing things on the field before they happen. Chris Paul has been compared as the 'Peyton Manning' of the basketball court, based on his craftiness and advanced intellectual understanding of the sport. Two off-seasons ago, Chris Paul was the cornerstone piece in a trade that placed him with the Los Angeles Clippers with fellow young superstar, Blake Griffin.
I have two of the most awesome parents ever. My mom is a lawyer and my dad he’s the best wide receiver in the NFL. He plays for the Pittsburg Steelers. I’m trying to follow in my dad’s footsteps because I am the best wide receiver at Cy-Woods. You would think being the best football player in the school, I would get more respect from my peers but nope everyone calls me the dork who has a 4.0 and plays football.
In all but one category Nabokov was ahead of Brodeur, that one being save percentage. So how does a guy one was clearly number 2 in the league in almost all major goaltending stats win the Vezina? In my opinion 08 was a popularity contest in which Brodeur won but looking at the status Nabokov should have won. Now throughout his career Brodeur played on a very good defensive team most of the time with two future hall of fame d men and they played the trap to boot. Throughout his time with the devils he has had 24.6 shots per game average and in games where he has had more he becomes a very average goalie.
