Cutty does it — all.
At least in high school, anyway. Before Jay Cutler landed his starting gig with the Chicago Bears, and before he even played ball for Vanderbilt, the Santa Claus, Ind., native was busy lighting it up on the field, and on the court, at Heritage Hills High School.
Cutler’s high school highlight reel reveals his promise as a football star — throwing touchdowns, catching passes, rushing, tackling and even returning punts. His mobility may have taken a few hits on his rise to the NFL, but that wasn’t the only surprising part of the video. The quarterback also showed off his basketball skills as his highlight tape concludes with a series of impressive dunks.
Check out No. 6 during his high school days in the video below, and skip to 4:30 for dunking Jay Cutler.
