i just think its ironic how the topic was side tracked from best athlete to whos better jason or josey. and if i'm correct the first time jasons name was mentioned was about baseball and the very next comment was talking about him def not being the best at basketball then it started. all to funny to me. i just thought the forum was about something different.

I have to agree jason helton was one hell of a baseball player, he owned the infield. By far the best short stop to come through.

I have lived here for about 10 years and you know what? There may be some great players here, but there definitely is a problem. This district stinks in almost....maybe not all, but almost all sports...at least they have since I have been here. I have heard every excuse in the world from school size, to the region we play in. Well, what about Central, they are one of the biggest schools in the region, what is there excuse? I remember one year that Southern had a decent football team...the year the Stocker kid was a senior...but again, I never really followed Southern sports until like 10 years ago, so maybe they good back in the day.

And as for Southern girls basketball, even the year they did win the district, they had like a 14-14 record....not what I call the greatest season in the world...and all those girls on that team had their own special talents. Sierra Merida was a good big...had a great mid range shot. Tiffany Willis and Paige McGuire were the hardest workers on the team, and Alicia Sizemore on any given night could out shoot any girls player in the 11th region. That team had played together for years, and even though they didn't have the best record in the world, that is how they won...but, you must give Nikki her props...the team tended to fall apart if she had to leave the game, she was by far the best ball handler on the time. But she did have her faults, and the biggest ones being shot selection and turnovers.

But all in all, Nikki Jeck is probably #1 on the list of girls ahtletes, but there are a few girls that I think could be right up there with her and deserve a little credit.

Jared Carpenter is, by far, one of the better male basketball players to ever grace the halls of Madison Southern.

Everyone's gotten so hung up on arguing over Nikki Jeck that they've forgotten the other great female athletes... Keeley Green and KaSandra Barnes on the soccer field, and Nikki was great there as well. Kelsey Merritt is still at Southern and is one hell of a soccer player. The softball team was loaded with talent four, five, and six years ago -- all of those girls played for The Fillies traveling team and grew up playing together. If Brian Foley had kept them in the positions they'd played their whole lives, they really could've done something that season.

DeMarcus White was an amazing football player. And you can't deny that Luke Stocker wasn't good -- his scholarship says it all.

Southern has been filled with good athletes for many years, but none of them get their chance to really shine, which is a complete shame.

Jared Carpenter was a celebrity, and we all like him. From early on we watched him and hoped he'd play at UK. What's he doing these days?

Some of the best haven't been mentioned yet.

Chad Moberly
Harold Eads
Mike Belt
Ben Fritz
Jay Simmons
All of the Duerson brother (Jera has been mentioned)

Also, Adam Shoopman's name has been thrown around but he was probably better at soccer than basketball or baseball. There have been many very good soccer players at MSHS through the years.
thats right
