The red-hot Phillies rookie is a former big-time college football recruit. An Eagles rookie wide receiver was twice drafted by major league baseball teams.
So much for one-sport specialization.
Starting in rightfield these days for the Phillies is Domonic Brown, a highly recruited wide receiver who had a scholarship offer from the University of Miami.
Battling for an Eagles job is fifth-round pick Riley Cooper, formerly of the University of Florida.
Brown and Cooper played high school football and baseball during the 2004-05 school year less than 45 minutes apart - Brown at Pasco High in Dade City, Fla., and Cooper at Clearwater Central Catholic.
