In this week’s Sunday Morning Spotlight, we take a look at a guy that really needs no introduction. The man they have named a geographic location after. Spotlight on Darrelle Revis.

Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Darrelle played for Aliquippa High School in his hometown, starring in both football and basketball. He played basketball so well, that he averaged 25.2 PPG in his senior year, and led his team in scoring as both a junior and a senior. Thank goodness he continued with football.

In the PIAA Class AA State Championship football game, he led Aliquippa to a come-from-behind 32–27 win over Northern Lehigh by scoring 5 touchdowns including 3 rushing touchdowns, a punt return, and the return of a blocked Northern Lehigh field goal attempt. He also completed a 39 yard pass, had a reception, and an interception in the game.

He went to the University of Pittsburgh to play his college ball, a school where the Jets have had success in the past(see Curtis Martin)
