From a high school senior in Washington state, on his football idol growing up:

"It would have to be Derrick Thomas (Kansas City Chiefs linebacker). My dad and I were big fans of him. I remember watching Thomas, he was just a freak of nature. I remember one game where the offense was backed up near the goaline, Thomas signaled safety to the fans. The next play he sacked the quarterback in the end-zone for a safety. He was just a stud."
A freak of nature indeed.
