It's Friday night, and what better way to spend the evening in preparation for the first football Saturday than catching some high school football? "Sure," you may respond, "but the significant other can't be persuaded to join me, as she's no fan of athletics!" And that's a common (if not universal) complaint.
Fortunately, those with no interest in sport often have interest in famous people, and what better way to bring these two great tastes together than with MaxPreps.com's list of the top 10 celebrity's sons in high school football?
The list includes some of the top preps in the nation, including Deion Sanders Jr., Ray Lewis III, and Barry Sanders. You can guess who these guys' dads are. Also, Fred Taylor's son Kelvin--the star of some ridiculous (if slightly contact-averse, but we're picking nits here) highlights--is on the list.
But again, to people whose interests don't directly involve the NFL, the term "celebrity" might not apply. For these people, you'll probably have to pony up the money for a trip to Westlake Village, outside of Los Angeles. That's the alma mater of Nick Montana, son of Joe Montana, and the current home to both Trevor Gretzky (yep) and Trey Smith... that'd be the son of Will Smith. Oh, sure, you can also see one of Will's kids doing sports by just watching The Karate Kid in the theaters, but c'mon, that's not football. Besides, movies are all CGI these days. Gotta see the real thing.
