Rewind Wednesday: Ken Houston

Every Wednesday, High School Football America’s Jeff Fisher will dive into his well-stocked treasure chest of interviews to talk with NFL players who love to talk about their love of high school football.

This week’s Rewind Wednesday takes you back to 2017, when Jeff spoke with Pro Football Hall of Fame strong safety Ken Houston, who many believe is the best to ever play the position. Houston said he was a better basketball player than football player, and he didn’t even start playing football until the 10th grade at Dunbar High School in East Texas.

The reason he started playing may surprise you. Press the play button below to hear it.
