Without a doubt "Mario Whitney". 1st in state 100meter dash, 1st in state 200meter dash(state record). Faster times as a senior than the big 12 champion in both events. State single game rushing record in football. And he did that in the 1st half. If he would have had as many carries as other record holders the total season rushing record would be his easily and out of reach.43 touchdowns his senior year. Several games he only played the first half. What a shame things didn't work out for him in athletics.

He was fun to watch . Too bad he didn't have a head on his shoulders to go along with those "FAST" legs .

Lane Lohr was an all around great athlete. A great wide receiver and all state pole vaulter in the early 80's . I think he went on the Univ of Ill for track.

Mario and Nathan Norman also have to be at the top of the list as well.

Nathan Norman was hardest working athlete & used his talents after high school. What did Mario do after high school???

That wasn't the question tall boy. Norman got more out if his abilities. Mario was far superior athlete. Mario is a world class sprinter. His time in the 100 his senior year would if been tenth in the olympics tht year. Without any coaching. Yes that is an insult to the track coaches. They weren't smart enough to realize what they had. Picking between the two to be a teammate hands down nathan.

Jessica Jones was an all around great athlete. She excelled in Softball, she was the 1st baseman and could be the catcher. She recieved an award(s) every year of her high school season. Each year she excelled into something better.

I think Steffan Troxel should be added to the list, most people dont even realize it. Troxel was an amazing swimmer, he swam for 4 years at Indiana University, one of the top swimming schools in the country, NCAA div 1. Swam all over the country, was ranked top 10 in the country in Open Water swimming, and had a very good showing at 2008 Olympic Trials in the 1500 meter freestyle. He is currently attending Southern Methodist University "SMU" Law School... So, if I had to say, Steffan should be extremely high on the list of best athletes even though when he was in highschool Jackson didn't even have a swim team. And as far as character goes and career potential, THE TOP!!

I'd have to say there are a lot of good athletes. Mario was fast as hell. Steffan is a great swimmer. Stacey Roth and Jessica Jones were great softball players. But to be All State in 3 sports and still hold records for weightliftling, I'd have to go with Nathan Norman, and as far as character goes, I don't see how anyone could have better.
