#links# Kansas just beat a top 15 team - so why are fans so disappointed in its performance? Paulson helped kick the Kernels to a state championship in 2016. He holds various state records for kicking including 68 extra points in a season, 89 total points in a season and 13 points in a single game. He was 68-of-71 kicking extra points including 41 consecutive to end the season. He was also 7-of-9 in field goals with a career-long of 44 yards. Paulson was named First Team All-State and First Team All-Conference as a kicker. He was also named Second Team All-State his sophomore season, First Team All-Conference his junior year and First Team All-Conference his senior season in soccer.

Rita Hanscom, San Diego, California: Rita, at 61 the holder of numerous age-group records in the combined events, was selected as the world female masters track and field athlete of the year for 2009. At the outdoor worlds in Finland that year she set the still-standing W55 world mark in the heptathlon (seven events), and in late June of the present year she established a world W60 mark in that event (she set the American W50 mark for the heptathlon at the 2007 worlds in Italy). Moreover, she has the American outdoor records in both W50 and W55 for the decathlon (10 events).

Projection: Ultra-athletic pass-rusher. Jackson is a raw prospect - he was a basketball player until Booker T. coaches convinced him to come out for spring football as a senior - and has a wiry frame and a high degree of athleticism. He will need time to develop, but UM will gladly work with him. Jackson, who has put up 25-plus rebounds several times in high school, has said he wants to play hoops at UM. For Jim Larranaga's team, he projects as an undersized power forward (think Erik Swoope).

How long ago do you think the first sports event was held? You might think that sports became a cherished part of society in the Victorian era Or perhaps medieval times. After all, we know there was jousting as well as boxing during this time in England. Evidence shows sports existed long before there was even civilization. Ancient cave drawings seem to show sprinting races and wrestling matches that date back over fifteen thousand years. These can be found everywhere from France to Mongolia. You might think that back then, sports were not a popular activity for the masses. But drawings from 7000 BCE portray a wrestling match with a crowd surrounding it. As such, it's clear that sports were certainly a predominant part of society before we built villages and cities.
