Fans often think about which NBA players may also have the potential to be pro football players, and vice versa.

This is obviously when LeBron James comes into mind. As we know, LeBron was a great high school football player, good enough to be an All-State player in his sophomore year. He even got recruited by Urban Meyer, who at that time, was the wide receivers coach at Notre Dame.

Then, years later, during the 2011 NBA lockout James actually trained to be an NFL player, not knowing how long the lockout would last. Apparently, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones even had a contract ready for LeBron to sign.

We all know it didn’t come this way, but at least we now got some LeBron football footage. A video of LeBron James playing wide receiver from his high school days recently went viral.
