High school softball: Career strikeout leaders with 1,500 or more punchouts - HIGHSCORE
High school softball: Career strikeout leaders with 1,500 or more punchouts
When it comes to unbreakable records, Hillary Phillips of Ider (Ala.) and her 2,463 career strikeouts might be the toughest to top. With the 2010 move of the pitching rubber back from 40 feet to 43 feet, strikeouts have been harder to come by, thus making Phillips' total the Mount Everest of high school softball records.

The closest any pitcher has come to threatening Phillips' mark in the past decade is Annie Willis, who finished with 1,975 strikeouts in 2017. However, Willis played six years (same as Phillips) and still comes up nearly 500 strikeouts short. Consider that the highest strikeout total during the 2021 season was 420 strikeouts by Hannah Price of Rogers (Florence, Ala.).

Phillips tops MaxPreps list of high school softball pitchers with over 1,500 career strikeouts. And while Phillips' mark is certainly impressive, Alicia Hollowell's career total might be more so.

A four-year starter at Fairfield (Calif.), Hollowell averaged 582 strikeouts a season. She also averaged 15.7 strikeouts per game during a 131-17 career. Anna Thompson, No. 3 on the career strikeouts list, comes in next with 13.0 strikeouts per game during a 151-27 career.

Michele Granger of Valencia (Placentia, Calif.) was the first pitcher to notch more 1,500 career strikeouts (when not counting fall and spring/summer seasons combined). She finished her career in 1988 with 1,635 strikeouts - which was 511 strikeouts more than previous record holder Samantha Ford of Newhall (Hart), who had 1,124 from 1982-85.

Granger held the record until 1992 when Michelle Martin of Columbus (Columbus Junction, Iowa) finished in 1992 with 1,781 strikeouts over a five-year career. Paige Stamp of Lisbon (Iowa) took over the top spot in 1996 with 1,975 strikeouts and Jen Bice of Woodward-Granger (Iowa) took her place in 1999 with 2,175. Hollowell moved the bar to 2,328 in 2002 and Phillips claimed No. 1 in 2009.

See where Michael Jordan and eight teammates prepped via Google Earth.

Chicago's United Center has been known for many things since it was built in 1994. The UC. The Madhouse on Madison. The House that Jordan Built.

Specifically, it is the home of the Chicago Bulls, where Michael Jordan and his teammates won four of their six NBA championships.

It's also where much of the footage was shot for the ESPN documentary series "The Last Dance," which concludes Sunday with its final two episodes.

The following are the home high school gyms and prep careers of Jordan and several teammates featured in the 10-part documentary.

E.A. Laney (Wilmington, N.C.) — Michael Jordan: Widely regarded as the greatest basketball player to ever lace up a pair of sneakers, Jordan didn't make the varsity as a sophomore. That started his fire to become the very best. A four-inch growth spurt combined with his fire and work ethic led to back-to-back seasons of 25-points-per-game-plus, a McDonald's All-American honor and scholarship to North Carolina.
Hamburg (Ark.) — Scottie Pippen: Named one of the 50 greatest players in NBA history, Pippen was an All-Conference player and led the Lions to the state playoffs, but he received no college offers. Like Jordan and Dennis Rodman — see below — a growth spurt literally helped elevate his game.
Palisades (Pacific Palisades, Calif.) — Steve Kerr: The greatest 3-point shooter (percentage wise) in NBA history and an 11-time NBA champion (as player and coach), Kerr was perhaps known more for his baseball prowess as a third baseman and pitcher than sharpshooter on the Palisades hardwood.
Kiser High School (Dayton, Ohio) — Ron Harper: The school was shut down and demolished the year Harper graduated in 1982 and now is site of the town's K-6 elementary. Harper averaged 20.5 points, 13.4 rebounds, five assists, five steals and six blocks as a senior and was named first-team All-Ohio.
Poway (Calif.) — Jud Buechler: Not only a top basketball prospect, earning a scholarship to the University of Arizona, the 6-6 forward was also a Top 50 national volleyball standout at Poway.
Long Island Lutheran (Brookville, N.Y.) — Bill Wennington: A native of Canada, the 7-foot post's family moved to Brookville where he led one of the nation's Top 10 teams. He later starred at St. John's before a 13-year NBA career.
South Oak Cliff (Dallas) — Dennis Rodman: The extravagant NBA Hall of Famer stood 5-6 as a high school freshman and was cut from making any teams there. A massive growth spurt led him to a spot at then Cooke County College and eventual NBA stardom.
Hancock Central (Sparta, Ga.) — Horace Grant: He and brother Harvey led the Bulldogs to back-to-back state titles before Horace earned a scholarship to Clemson, where he was the ACC Player of the Year. He won four NBA titles with the Bulls and Lakers.
Brother Rice (Bloomfield Hills, Mich.) — B.J. Armstrong: The three-time NBA champion and point guard holds the Warriors' single-game scoring record at 51 points and is a member of the Catholic League Hall of Fame.
California high school football: Defending HIGHSCORE National Champion St. John Bosco doubles up Sierra Canyon in season opener - HIGHSCORE
California high school football: Defending MaxPreps National Champion St. John Bosco doubles up Sierra Canyon in season opener
It had been 455 days since defending MaxPreps National Champion St. John Bosco (Bellflower, Calif.) took the field in a high school football game that counted. No worries as the Braves cruised to a 42-21 win Saturday night over Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth, Calif.) to begin the 2021 spring season.

The Trailblazers scored on their opening drive as Daniel Duran found Virginia Tech signee DJ Harvey for a 26-yard score but the Braves would answer with three straight touchdowns to take a 21-7 lead. Rayshon Luke, Michael Hayes and sophomore quarterback Pierce Clarkson all rushed for a score in the first half.

Clarkson and junior Katin Houser alternated possessions under center and both played well. Replacing DJ Uiagalelei at quarterback is a steep hill, but both showed why FBS offers are starting to pile up.

Sierra Canyon cut the deficit to 21-14 in the final minutes of the opening half when Duran found tight end Henry Deakins from 19-yards out for his second scoring strike.

Those would be the final points the Braves defense allowed outside of a late, fourth-quarter touchdown with the reserves playing.

St. John Bosco dominated the second half as Luke rushed for a 67-yard score on the opening possession after Clarkson found sophomore standout Matayo Uiagalelei on a third-down conversion. DJ's younger brother stood out on both sides of the ball and showed why he's the fifth-rated recruit in California from the Class of 2023.

Houser made a big-time play alluding pressure and rolling outside the pocket to find Chedon James for a 21-yard touchdown that increased the Braves lead to 35-14 with 4:28 left in the third quarter. The pair connected on a 41-yard touchdown late in the fourth.

Sierra Canyon freshman quarterback Alonzo Contreras connected with Jason Jones for the final score of the night with seven seconds remaining.

Jason Negro's squad dominated in the trenches. Four-star junior Earnest Greene, USC signee Maximus Gibbs and senior Edward Riley created huge holes for the running game while also allowing Houser and Clarkson plenty of time in the pocket.

The Brave's defense forced three turnovers and shined on all three levels.

The Braves next face Santa Margarita (Rancho Santa Margarita) on March 20 while Sierra Canyon looks to bounce back March 19 against St. Bernard (Playa del Rey).

2018 HIGHSCORE High School Freshman All-American Football Team - HIGHSCORE
2018 MaxPreps High School Freshman All-American Football Team
Georgia has been home to some of the most accomplished ninth-grade signal callers in recent years. From DeShaun Watson to Jake Fromm and Trevor Lawrence, the Peach State has led the way with quarterbacks making an instant impact as freshmen.

In 2018, Gunner Stockton showed that he was next in line.

The 6-foot-1, 195-pound quarterback emerged at Rabun County (Tiger, Ga.) in a major way this year.

Stockton, a top-ranked quarterback in the Class of 2022 according to scouting service Recruiting Brain, showed that, for as much promise his future holds, he was ready to make an instant impact. He completed 190-of-291 passes for 2,917 yards and 34 touchdowns.

His touchdown total (34) eclipsed the ninth grade production of Watson (17), Lawrence (26) and Fromm (8).

"He is a very special/rare player," said Rabun County quarterbacks coach Jaybo Shaw. There are not many Gunner Stockton's walking around."

Stockton highlights a talented and geographically diverse group of freshmen All-Americans that features players from all pockets of the country as well as a selection from American Somoa.

MaxPreps 2018 Freshmen All-American Team

First Team Offense

The Peach State's next great signal caller, Stockton threw for 2,917 yards and 34 touchdowns. He also rushed for 709 yards and 17 more scores.

Threw for 1,937 yards and 21 touchdowns while rushing 60 times for 312 yards and six scores, drawing comparisons to a young Cam Newton.

A physical specimen at 6-1, 185, Gibbs topped the 1,500-yard mark and scored 22 touchdowns.

One of the more exciting players in the Stockton-Modesto area, Brown reeled off 1,688 yards and scored 28 times. He added 31 catches for 741 yards.

"Bam Bam" battered opposing defenses, en route to district Newcomer of the Year honors.

With 48 catches for 1,191 yards and 13 touchdowns, Burden is the definition of a home-run threat. With the gridiron season finished, Burden heads to the hardwood, where he might be even more talented.

Notched 77 catches for 854 yard and six scores for Alemany. According 247Sports, he already has an offer from Oregon.

For one of Massachusetts' top programs, Zamor emerged as one of the top young talents in New England, lining up at numerous positions and earning a Michigan offer in the process.

Also an impressive basketball and baseball player, Oatis saw varsity action in the trenches as an eighth-grader, a testament to his incredible physical prowess. He has already landed offers from Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi and Mississippi State.

The ballyhooed middle-school phenom shed 80 pounds heading into ninth grade, making him a factor immediately on the Holy Cross varsity line.

Iuli was an absolute monster for state semifinalists Puyallup. Washington has produced numerous blue-chip lineman through the years, and Iuli has the chance to be every bit as good as any of them.

An all-district selection, Meadows helped Graham capture a Class 2 state title, the program's first since 1995.

Though his future is likely on the defensive side of the ball, Miles, who already holds offers from Michigan and North Carolina, was a key figure on the St. Peter's Prep offensive line.

Nickel was a key contributor to state champion Milton, where he also lined up at fullback.

For the storied Ohio program, Harrison stepped into the starting quarterback role and tossed for 1,649 yards and 12 touchdowns.

First Team Defense

At 6-3, 305 pounds, Neal is a mountain of a young man, and will be drawing double teams for years to come.

Accounted for 76 tackles and 15 sacks for a 14-1 Northeastern team.

Thomas knifed his way through opposing offensive lines to the tune of 13 sacks.

A massive presence up front for one of New Jersey's top teams, Booker had three tackles in Bergen Catholic's early season upset over Grayson (Loganville, Ga.).

For state champ Crusaders, Misa tallied 39 tackles and added a blocked punt.

The son of former NFL player (and current Kansas City Chiefs assistant) Deland McCullough, Dasan already towers over his dad and could be an FBS recruit at multiple positions.

The Black Knights have produced some blue-chip recruits and Smith, a 6-3, 221-pound specimen, seems to fit the mold.

In Alabama's ultra-competitive Class 7A, Alexander earned All-State honors, finishing with 74 tackles.

After leading the team in tackles as an eighth-grader, Martin delivered once more as a freshman.

A playmaker for Palmetto, he made big plays on both defense and special teams.

A breakthrough player in the secondary for the CIF Open Division state champs Mater Dei, he recorded two interceptions and three pass breakups.

A starter for one of the state's top programs, he also saw action at wide receiver and has now transitioned to the hardwood.

An all-region pick, he was responsible for 26 tackles, five interceptions and 12 pass breakups.

He's drawn comparisons to Chiefs' defensive tackle, and fellow "757" native Derrick Nnadi. The 6-4 300 pounder made 71 tackles and earned Second Team All-State.

Second Team Offense

It was a dominant season for the coach's son who carved up opposing defenses to the tune of 2,984 yards and 40 touchdowns.

The 6-5 gunslinger threw for 2,438 yards and 29 touchdowns against four interceptions, helping the Titans to a 9-3 finish.

Topped the 1,000-yard mark for the 9-3 Cougars, while adding six catches for 74 yards and another score.

Made a name for himself with 329 yards and four touchdowns against state power Lake Taylor (Norfolk). On the season, he accumulated 1,421 yards and 16 scores.

Coach's son found the end zone 22 times on 1,280 yards, while adding a pick-six on defense.

Taylor, simply put, is one of the fastest players in America. As Washington continues to become a recruiting hotspot, Taylor will carry the torch.

Turner-Gooden showed glimpses all over the field, lining up at wide receiver, defensive back, punt returner and kick returner.

The sky is the limit for the 6-3 Groves, who caught eight touchdowns and also spent time at running back.

After missing most of the season with a broken foot, Johnson, whose father Brad played quarterback and won a Super Bowl in the NFL, closed the season by catching a touchdown pass from brother Max, an LSU commit.

A starter out of the gate, Harris showed the promise that led to an early offer from Alabama.

Not only started for mighty Centennial, a high school power, he played the key position of left tackle for one of the country's best programs.

Worked his weigh into the starting lineup and more than held his own for Broward County power St. Thomas Aquinas.

Taylor was tasked with protecting the quarterback's blindside, using his 6-5 frame to line up at left tackle.

For Class 6A Atascocita, which finished 11-2, Dewberry saw significant time at tackle. He'll be one of the biggest recruits in the Lone Star State in coming years.

The 6-2 WR/FS saw action on special teams. As a receiver, he caught 10 touchdowns.

Second Team Defense

Record 19 tackles and swatted down three passes. He projects to be one of the more coveted recruits from the Hoosier State.

While he saw regular work at defensive end and played special teams, the best is yet to come for Finkley, who's already 6-2, 225.

A gifted edge-rushed and totaled six sacks and five tackles for loss.

In the season opener, Perry immediately established his presence, recording six tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery.

It's rare for any freshmen to contribute for Texas Class 6A powers like Coppell, especially at physically demanding positions like linebacker. Polk thrived, with a team high 116 tackles.

The team's leading tackler this fall, Murphy will be a sought-after recruit before his time is up.

Playing in the nation's premier league, Te'o more than held his own. He was responsible for 66 tackles and four quarterback hurries.

The 6-2, 210 pounder looks like a linebacker at the next level, but also saw action behind center for Simmons.

The rangy Barham took advantage of a growth spurt entering high school and saw varsity action for national power DeMatha.

With his size (6-1, 195), Clark thrived at safety before moving up to play linebacker. He hails from the same school as former blue-chip defensive back Antwine Perez.

The son of former NFL receiver Donald Driver, Cristian helped Liberty Christian to an 8-5 season and a berth in the state state semifinals.

DB – Oakie Salave'a, Leone (Pago Pago, American Samoa)
Salave'a, whose uncle Joseph spent more than a decade in the NFL as a defensive tackle, has the size (6-3, 180) and pedigree to be a big-time player from American Samoa. He already has an offer from Hawaii.

A member of the Crusaders' impressive young nucleus, Gould made 24 tackles and an interception.

An all-area honorable mention selection, Singletary had seven picks and six pass breakups for Class 7A Lee.
