Steelers Antonio Brown posts video of his High School highlights

Years before becoming an All-Pro receiver for the Steelers, Antonio Brown was terrorizing opposing defenses as a high school standout at Miami Norland High School.

Lining up at running back and quarterback was well as wide receiver, Brown was a two time Class 6A All-State selection, and was named the North Athlete of the Year at the 2005 Miami-Dade Gridiron Classic.

Despite his impressive highlights (as seen above in a video Brown recently shared on his Facebook page) and accolades, many big schools--including Florida State, his college of choice--Brown was shunned by most of the major college programs, due to "academic concerns." Because of this, Brown went to NorthCarolina Tech Prep after high school, running for 451 yards with 13 touchdowns and throwing for 1,247 yards and 11 scores in just five games.

It was at that point that Brown finally got the attention of a Division I school, Central Michigan, where Brown caught 305 passes for 3,199 yards while scoring 32 total touchdowns in three seasons with the Chippewas. Brown's achievements at Central Michigan--couple with his strong performance at the 2010 NFL Combine--led to him being drafted by the Steelers in the sixth round of that ensuing draft.

And the rest, as they say, is history.
