They’ve left their Arizona high school nests, but aia365.com wants to continue following the careers of former in-state athletes who are now soaring elsewhere.
If you know of any former Arizona high school athletes still making headlines, please let me know (email@example.com). And as you’ll see in the first ever catch-up installment for aia365.com, it doesn’t have to be just about sports.
Work promotions. A new baby. Even wedding proposals made in Las Vegas and then posted on YouTube.
We’ll post what we can so we can stay in touch with former athletes with Arizona high school ties.
On Wednesday, New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara (Apollo High 2007) posted a video of his surprise wedding proposal to his girlfriend.
It happened in July in Las Vegas with the help of popular hip-hop dance crew the Jabbawockeez.
