Sounds like Michaels just put Twyman at DB because he knew  he had to be in the golden 11 and he couldnt fit in the qb  catergory.

One person that is missing from the list is QB Peter Lalich from West Springfield. He went 207-312 which is a 66% passing accuracy. He had 3,141 yards along with 31 touchdowns and 7 picks. For as much as he throws that really is not bad. It is not liek West Springfield has that great of receivers either. Also he is commited to Virginia, he is a hell of a QB

why did it make you laugh? yes DeMatha does have some people that aren't too bright, but there are A LOT of kids that are really really gifted. I had the highest grades in my class all up to 8th grade (granted I was in public school) and I came into DM and am just a little bit above average as a student.

take note of that list and is it possible for you to point out any other player that had his grades highlighted?
I think on the DeMatha player is listed and he is considering Harvard.
