Bo Pelini High School Hoops Pic Surfaces - Lost Lettermen

Bo Pelini High School Hoops Pic Surfaces

October 8th, 2012| by

Those magnanimous college football coaches you see strolling along the sidelines every fall Saturday were once gawky high school kids just like you. Case in point: Nebraska’s Bo Pelini.

Pelini wasn’t just a football player at Cardinal Mooney High School in Youngstown, OH. He also played on the Cardinals’ basketball team, and there’s a picture of Pelini rocking the short shorts and tight-fitting jersey to prove it.

Doesn’t Pelini look like he could pass for an extra in Hoosiers? The old-school style jersey and close cropped haircut makes him look like a Jimmy Chitwood clone. Alas, Pelini’s haircut is no match for the ultra-perm that Gene Chizik was rocking in his high school yearbook photo.
