Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is arguably the best receiver in the NFL. Already off to a great 2016 season, Brown dominated the Washington Redskins defense with seven receptions, 113 yards and two touchdowns. As one of the most athletic talents in the league, he must have been pretty good in high school too, right? Oh yeah, he was.

The four-time Pro Bowler went to Miami Norland High School in Miami Gardens, Florida. Brown was a quarterback who could run circles around any defense that was put in front of him.
