Midwest's Best Remember Past Holidays

Anthony Rice

Some of the Midwest's top recruits recall holiday memories: best gifts and best moments.

Kyle Knapp - Portage Central (MI)
Committed to Syracuse

The best present I've ever gotten for Christmas was an X-Box a couple years ago for my sister and me. It was nice because we both like sports games like Madden and 2k Baseball. My favorite Christmas memory is going over to my grandparents house every Christmas Eve. My grandma makes this great holiday punch with pop and sherbet and I get to hang out with my cousins and just enjoy being together as a family. I've really enjoyed this tradition ever since I was a little kid.

Shane Morris - Warren DeLaSalle (MI)
Committed to Michigan

Best present I've ever gotten would have to be my car I got. The best memory of Christmas is just spending time with my whole family every year at my grandparents' house on Christmas Eve.

Roger Lewis - Pickerington Central (OH)
Committed to Ohio State

The best present I got was a laptop and IPhone, and my best memory on Christmas was when me and my family went to Florida on a cruise.

Josiah Price - Greentown Eastern (IN)
Committed to Michigan State

My favorite present. It was probably like 14 years ago, me and all my brothers got a new computer from our parents. That was back before video games really and we use to play computer games on it all day long! Especially 'cause we were home schooled so we got more free time to play 'em. Also I got an I-Pod touch this year for Christmas so that is probably my second favorite present."

My best gift was a Power Ranger in 1998 and my best memory is that because my family was still together and I can still watch it because my dad recorded it.

Anthony Rice - Mishawaka Marian (IN)
Committed to Central Michigan

My best gift was a tool set when I was like ten. I used to go around the house fixing things that were fine the way they were and taking stuff apart just to turn around and put it all back together.

My Own Christmas Memory: In the early days of the internet, my family couldn't afford anything but dial-up, especially because I didn't realize phone charges applied and ran up a $400 bill the first month we had a computer. One year, my family bought me cable internet for Christmas, my mom put in a note that said she hoped my website building would be less frustrating. It was. I started my own scouting website which eventually lead to my current position with Fox/Scout. When I went to college, my parents went back to dial-up. When I graduated and started with Scout, I bought them DSL.
