Reggie Bush Was Pretty Good in High School, Too

ESPN (among others) is currently airing a series of Nike ads showing highlights from the high school careers of Michael Vick and LaDanian Tomlinson. Nice ads, and it is quite entertaining to see snippets of those guys at the high school level. But neither holds a candle to the Reggie Bush high school highlights, written about today in the New York Times, with the video linked from the article here. Take the time to watch this video; as the article says, "the footage of Bush... can induce dizzy spells, even for a jaded viewer numbed by hours of cable highlight shows." Translation: if it made my jaw drop, it should make yours as well.

Reggie's great.

But someone needs to teach all those poor kids how to tackle correctly. I've never seen a worse exhibition of basic fundamentals on defense...

I don't care how bad the tackling was, that was insane. He looked like he was running and everyone else was doing a walk-through. That guy's sick.

That video was INCREDIBLE!

but I wouldn't call it Noel Devine'ish... and for all of the people who might be scratching their heads saying "Who's Noel Devine?".. well he's a JUNIOR (not in 12th grade yet) from Ft. Myers Florida. Arguebly the number one player in the nation regardless of grade since he was a sophmore.

I agree. Reggie Bush is the Mr. Human highlight reel and thats forsure. Just one question... does any one know where this kid plans on going to college? USC perhaps?

REGGIE SHOUDNT ENTER THE DRaft this year because if he does he's going to the worst team in the nfl the texans they suck so i think he should go back 2 usc and wait till after his senior year to enter the nfl draft and maybe there will be a better teem to draft him.

Reggie Bush is no Noel Devine...that is true, because Noel Devine doesnot posses the skill level that Reggie does. That film is amazing, he zigs, zag, jukes, spins, powers and flat out runs over, past and through any defender. Bush did the same thing in HS as he did in college, that is way crazy, dude is redic....

So his team played the worst defenses ever in two games worth of highlights...big deal. Any offensive skill player in mel kipers top 50 could score on that lame defense. His college career was impressive but this high school crap is not. Every high school in the nation has some video locked up that they bring out and watch every year and talk about that one great player they had back in 88 or whatever year. Noel Divine appears much faster than Bush at the high school level

WOW!! I mean what more is there to say?! Dude is amazing, and he hasn't even started to grow yet. At first I thought, he must have good linemen, but he did 90% himself! Barry Sanders comes to mind when I see this kid breaking tackles two steps in to his run. I can't wait to see this guy on the next level. Is he sure he doesn't want to go to FSU?!

ok noel is good, ill give you that but untill we see him in college we dont know how he will actually be. He could be totally shut down or just not play as well as he seemed in high school because the defenses are much better. you cant expect the world from him

Guess who was throwing to Reggie Bush in most of these videos? None other than last year's previous number 1 pick Alex Smith. When i played these guy's in high school we held Reggie to around 200 yards, and we felt like that was a victory. Also, Alex Smith wasn't that good in high school. He really came into his own at Utah. Anyway's Reggie was even better in person then he is on these videos. Most of these plays are against some of the bad teams in San Diego. We still lost by 10 and we were top 5 in the county. Went to Fallbrook High. Reggie is insane, that's all!

Haha, just realized the last highlight of the video, the red team with a big "F" in the middle of the field, was my team haha... I was wondering when I would see us. Anyways Alex Smith was #7 in high school.

This tape is amazing, I'm really glad it was made available. As far as Noel Devine goes, in my opinion, (which is strictly based on high school film alone) Noel's high school film is better. It's not really close, Noel has more highlights, better highlights, and he still has another year left of highschool to make new highlights. I wouldn't go as far as some Devine fans, and say he's better then Reggie Bush. That's ridiculous, Reggie Bush is a Hiesman Trophy winner, who was the 2nd pick in the NFL Draft. Noel's good, but he's got a long way to go untill we start comparing him to "The President".

Reggie did it in College until Noel does-end of story- but Reggie played a bunch of Nobodies in High School and at USC, Give me a break last year the best running Defense the played all year outside of UT was ranked #93, which is a JOKE, obviously Superman is Imortal "Vince" while the Prez got assasinated! Vince makes Reggie look SLOW!

Listen to you idiots fightin' like ya'll they hoes or somethin' wake up Reggie is the best thing to hit the NFL since Barry Sanders, ya'll actin out of line cussin' & all that noise first learn to communicate, second do your homework...Check it Reggie has been a phenom since elementary & he's straight running the game. You sit & talk about how he played against shitty defenses in high school & college, your a dipshit for that one.. He played against the same caliber of players as every other back playing in the NFL today... If any of these idiots actually played football instead of sittin' on they ass watching they'd have more respect for the man cause a RB is the toughest job in the game, do you even know the average shelflife a a RB 2-5 yrs! When you see him breakin' records even on the sorry ass Saints don't cry like your hero did when he lost the Big H to Reggie.. Now As for V. Young that negro is sick, disgusting, he's somethin' like Mike, but he's bigger & has a stronger arm. You do the math JA's so stop the bs'n & let's talk football girls....

Reggie Bush is Good But I heard rumor he didnt even pass all his classes and if thats true Vince Young doesnt even deserve it either i played QB for a couple years i wasnt fast like him but i deffintly dont see how every one thinks hes so good when it doesnt take to much to throw a TD its all the person that recieves;;; if they run into it Niether one of those teams wher balanced They had Superstars and Good Players
The Teams that should have played in the N.C should have been ND and OSU because they are balanced teams every one on those teams are balanced and Brady Quinn Gets heisman--o6
