Many schools have a different kind of sports teams. You might even be on one or two of them. Also, colleges and universities have projects where students take part and compete in sports as part of their study scholarship. What a lot of you probably don’t know is that a lot of our favorite celebrities also took part in sports teams! Here are a few of them:
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was a very active teen. At high school, he took part in various sports: football, wrestling, track, and field. Channing Tatum was the captain of his school football team and went to college on a football scholarship. We all know he’s also a talented dancer. The hilarious Terry Crews in his younger years was also crazy about football and attended university on a full football scholarship.
Brad Pitt played basketball for his high school team. Similarly, George Clooney played baseball in high school and tried to play professionally, but he didn’t make it past the first round of tryouts.
Ellen DeGeneres played tennis at school and golf in her spare time as a teen. Gwen Stefani was in a swim team and Emma Watson played field hockey at university.
Last but not least, Kate Hudson played soccer in high school. The actress says the love of athletics ran in her family: “My mom was a dancer, my dad was a baseball player, my brother was a hockey player, and I was a soccer player and a dancer — we grew up very active.” Wow, what a sporty family!
