A Quick Ten: My Top 10 Movie Athletes

Who are the best athletes in the movies?  No biopics so Quad in “The Rookie” and Billy Crudup in “Without Limits” are out.  No pro athletes either.

10.  Jack Elliot (Mr. Baseball)  His only knock was that big hole in his swing.

9.  Ernie McCracken (Kingpin)

8.  Benny Rodriguez (The Sandlot)  Unbeatable in a pickle.

7.  Scott Howard (Teen Wolf)  Best PG ever.

6.  Ricky Vaughn (Major League)

5.  Cole Trickle (Days of Thunder)  He can do anything with a racecar.

4.  Levander ‘Bird’ Williams (Wildcats)  Made Goldie Hawn a football coach.

3.  Roy Hobbs (The Natural)  Made a bat and got shot.  Classic Hobbs.

2.  Jimmy Chitwood (Hoosiers)  Best pure shooter ever.

1.  Artie DeVanzo (Beer League)  Buy this movie if you don’t own it already.  The greatest athlete in a movie ever in Artie DeVanzo
