Before they were Patriots
Devin McCourtySchool: St. Joseph Regional High School, Montvale, N.J.
Devin and twin brother Jason McCourty were talented high school football players, but it was Jason that carried all the hype. "[Jason] was our starting tail back," high school coach Tony Karcich said. "He was averaging 12 yards per carry." Because of a muscle tear injury, Devin was relegated to cornerback his senior year so he didn't get a lot of publicity, Karcich said. When Greg Schiano, then coach of Rutgers, came calling for Jason, he was drawn to Devin as well. Turns out, Schiano has twin boys himself. Jason turned down Boston College to stay with his brother.
