A collection of world famous athletes from their school days, complete with stellar fashion choices

Here are eleven athletes before (sometimes way before) they made it in the world of sports. Follow the link below each picture to see them all grown up!

1. Derek Jeter of the New York Yankees

It would be a travesty if he didn’t win “Best Hair.”


2. Paul Pierce of the Boston Celtics


3. Michael Phelps of the US Men’s Swim Team

Laser background + denim collar = Perfection


4. Hope Solo of the US Women’s Soccer Team


5. Tiger Woods of the PGA Tour

As he shirt says, he loves being a kid!


6. Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics


7. David Beckham of the LA Galaxy

Even then he was charming as heck.


8. Blake Griffin of the LA Clippers

He genuinely looks happy to be there.


9. Tom Brady of the New England Patriots


10. Danica Patrick of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series

I hope he still has that elephant. And that turtleneck.
