It wasn’t that long ago that Reggie Fleurima was the state’s busiest kid.
Now the Naperville Central junior has more time than he knows what to do with as he waits for prep football to return in Illinois.
Back in third grade, Fleurima was doing five different sports: football, basketball, baseball, soccer and wrestling.
“I was getting so tired,” he said. “My dad said, ‘We’ve got to cut it down.’”
Most of the sports didn’t last long on his itinerary, though he played basketball till he got to high school.
“When I was younger, I was more of a 4 or 5,” he said. “But there’s no such thing as a 6-2 power forward.”
