1. Mike Wilt, 1990

He was named league player of the year in football and basketball. The quarterback/safety was best on offense, which he played at Division I-AA Fordham University. In basketball, he averaged about 24 points a game as a senior and is the school's second-leading all-time scorer (1,494 points). And yet he also was a standout in track and field, especially in the triple jump and javelin. He was the best in the league at both events as a junior and senior and still holds the YAIAA Track and Field Championships record in the javelin (192-10). He medaled at both districts and states in the javelin.

7. Harry Little, 1945

He was a sports legend before there were all-star teams - and long enough ago that statistics and honors have been forgotten. He was one of the best of his era in soccer, basketball and baseball. He went to Penn State to play soccer and baseball.

8. Kelly Raber, 1978

He was scouted by the St. Louis Cardinals as a pitcher and by Syracuse University, Virginia and Virginia Tech as a quarterback and punter.

He was drafted by the New York Mets as a first baseman in the 30th round. He also was the top scorer on the soccer team and a league all-star.
