Who is Darrelle Reavis?

If you have watched the NFL playoffs or listened to any sports radio in the last month you have heard the name Darrelle Reavis or as he is more widely known simply, Reavis. But what do we really know about Reavis. We know that Mike Greenberg of Mike and Mike in the Morning is a huge fan. We know he plays for the Jets and we know you don’t throw a football in his general vicinity.

Here are somethings that maybe you didn’t know. He went to the University of Pittsburgh before he was drafted 14th in the first round of the 2007 NFL draft. He left school after his junior year.

In high school he was a two sport stud also playing basketball. He averaged 25 points per game as a senior. In football his team won the Pennsylvania State title in a game he scored 5 touchdowns. 3 rushing, 1 kickoff return and 1 on a blocked field goal. He also caught a pass, threw a pass, and had an interception. Rumor has it he even drove the bus to the game.

In the NFL he is a two time pro-bowler and has been wreaking havoc on the NFL for 3 years. In weeks 1 and 2 of the 2009 season he held Andre Johnson and Randy Moss to a combined 8 catches. In fact only three receivers that he was matched up with gained more than 40 yards and the most catches anyone got was 5.(Randy Moss only for 34 yards) He is so good that people don’t use his full name they just say Reavis. He is so good you don’t throw near him because there is a better chance that he will knock the ball down than your guy will catch it. He is just that good.

However you put it this guy is an absolute stud. He will affect the AFC championship one way or another come Sunday. I would love to see him matched up against either of the NFC teams.
