LOL love his bio, the Olympics are like the 5th thing mentioned



Quote
Nathan Leeper, from Protection, Kansas, grew up hunting and fishing in the notorious deer unit 16 in Comanche County. Nathan was raised farming and ranching and always had a strong agricultural background. He's always been a diehard traditional archery hunter and has a wall of trophy deer to prove it. Nathan has always had a passion for growing big deer, managing land, and sustaining a healthy herd.

Aside from chasing deer, Nathan currently resides in Pratt, Kansas with his wife, Jenny, and their three beautiful children; Taylor, Brynn, and Colson. Additionally, Nathan is a well-known Olympian and competed in the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia in the high jump.

His knowledge of farming, ranching, and killing big deer sets him aside from any other land agent in Kansas. Nathan is more than qualified to help assist you in selling or buying the property of your dreams.

steve dave, were there any theories on the origins of his jumping powers? was he an early adopter of Strength shoes? my dad always attributed unusual athletic prowess to "throwing square bales in the summer time."

Leave it to cow farmers to select for optimal jumping genes in their own offspring.

I saw Nate Cornejo (future MLB'er) take one dribble from the three point line in a half court setting and dunk it one-handed in a high school game. In my final year of Babe Ruth he through a curveball that sent me into the dirt and fell in for a called strike.

Also saw future KSU Cat Donnie Wallace play in high school. I don't remember him doing anything particularly impressive but he was insanely skinny. He was ultimately Frank'd by Wooly.
He was a detroit tiger!

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Stone...where did you go to high school?
A very tiny place nestled amongst sandstone outcropings. I don't want to doxx myself and all the shitposting I've done on gE over the years.

Fair enough.  Was just trying to determine if we may have been on the same football field at some point.  :cheers:

I actually checked to see if my HS was in it, we typically win one per decade, and clearly looking at the standings for this year, we are at our nadir, so no dice.

Taryn Sides is a v cool name imo. If she has a really good crossover move maybe she can legally change her name to like Taryn Ligaments (since a lot of defenders are going to blow out their ACLs and/or MCLs trying to make a rapid lateral movement when they are guarding her unsuccessfully)

Fantastic BLOB play by Moundridge to advance to the 2A championship game. Lots of good basketball being played in Central KS this winter.

These old guys that have been coaching high school, and even junior high sports, often at the same school for multiple decades, are a true treasure.

Think of all of the kids that have called him Coach Slay before slay was a slang word.
