SHARE Kyle Schwarber’s football career ended at the hands of Braxton Miller

Kyle Schwarber’s name is becoming well known across America. What isn’t as well known is that he was also a stud high school football prospect.

A linebacker at Middletown High School in Ohio, Schwarber was an all-state selection and had offers from numerous Division I schools.

He played his final football game Nov. 6, 2010 – a 21-0 postseason loss to Huber Heights Wayne and its star quarterback, Braxton Miller.

Miller, of course, went on to a decorated career at Ohio State. The senior quarterback-turned-receiver has already won more Big Ten awards – seven – than any player in Big Ten history.

A two-time Big Ten player of the year, imagine what an unstoppable force Miller was in high school.

Schwarber wasn’t so bad himself. He led the team in tackles and guided the Middies to an undefeated season until they ran into Miller.

The Cubs took Schwarber with the No. 4 pick in the 2014 draft, and the rest – like a Schwarber home-run ball – is history.
