    I led the state of Iowa (all divisions) in INT's thrown my junior year.

    In my defense we had just switched to a 5 wide out spread offense and I wasn't completely used to the system yet.

    That being said... I was still the best!

    I scored a sweet jumpshot in garbage time in a game we were blown out it.

    Won a team state championship in football. Individually, not too much.

    Re: Your greatest athletic accomplishment?

    I led my coed intramural volleyball team to a first-round playoff victory despite being outnumbered 3-on-6.

    Yeah, that's about it.

    Not greatest, but definetily oddest.

    Football game in fourth quarter, out of timeouts. Playing defense. Cornerback got hurt and Coach sent in another D-Lineman. I saw this went out to play cornerback. Opposing coach saw this and called for a pass my way. One play at corner and one interception.

    I completed a triathlon.

    I also rode every mile of RAGBRAI while consuming a ridiculously large amount of beer in 7 days. Ride-drink-pass out-Gatorade-repeat.

    Re: Your greatest athletic accomplishment?

    4 years of running the 3200 at state track, then sitting the rest of the meet and drooling over the chicks. Of course until I was an idiot senior and decided I needed to qualify in the mile so I actually had to care about track until Saturday. Only thing the IAHSAA has ever gotten right was going co-ed with state track.

    Hopefully getting through the DSM Marathon in October becomes my new best.

    Re: Your greatest athletic accomplishment?

    Keep in mind that my school had roughly 100 kids:

    Only person in school who could dunk but didn't play basketball. I sucked at every other aspect of the game. My 8th grade year I went out and scored 3 points the whole year and there were only 7 kids on the team :) I was short and fat in junior high.

    First person in school to bench 300lbs. They are probably doing 400lbs now.

    Could barely run a 1/2 mile in high school football practice. 10 years later ran a full marathon.

    Re: Your greatest athletic accomplishment?

    jr high team went undefeated in both years..not much competition, blew everyone away. (im going into my freshman year) our basketball team went to an 8 team state championship, beat 2 4A schools and got 2nd place there, then we went to minnesota to play in the "great state" championship at the target center. beat a south dakota school, lost our next two against minnesota teams, got 4th place. not bad for a 2A school. individually, had a 12 point game including a game winning shot in the championship game of a tournament

    Re: Your greatest athletic accomplishment?

    I had a pick 6 in 5th grade. Won 2 paintball tournaments w/ ISU, and many more top 5 finishes. Won quite a few IM championships, but I was fortunate to play with a bunch of great dudes.

    Completed Dam to Dam this year, so that was probably my best personal accomplishment.
