Ever wonder what your fave sports stars were like in high school? We talked to San Francisco Giants center fielder Rajai Davis and found out!

Simon: What were you like when you were a freshman?
Rajai Davis: It was my first year in a new city. That was the first year I moved to New London, so I had to adjust to getting to know people and making new friends. I was definitely pretty shy - didn't really go out of my way to introduce myself to new people. I wasn't that outgoing. If I got to know you then that was a different story.

Simon: What was a typical outfit you would wear?
Rajai Davis: I was pretty much wearing what everyone else was. My jeans weren't as baggy as there's, but they were baggy with the gym shoes. I was always a Nike man - always wanted to wear the Nike shoes. I also liked to wear nice collared shirts. Other than that, I just wanted to wear Nike.

Simon: Did you play any other sports?
Rajai Davis: I played three sports - football, I played basketball, and baseball in the springtime.

Simon: What musical artists did you listen to at the time?
Rajai Davis: Back in the day - I don't listen to it anymore - but I used to like watching BET. Whatever was on BET, I was listening to it. It's been so long it's hard to remember specifics though!

Simon: What TV shows did you watch?
Rajai Davis: Bill Cosby, Simpsons. Definitely watched X-Men on Saturdays.

Simon: What was your favorite class?
Rajai Davis: I liked Algebra. Math was always a good subject for me, I just always excelled with math, as opposed to reading, which wasn't my best friend (laughs).

Simon: And your least favorite?
Rajai Davis: I don't remember the teacher's name, but all I know is in that class we had to read so many books and we had so many detailed pop-quizzes. You had to read it, Cliff Notes wouldn't help you (laughs).

Simon: Were you a ladies man?
Rajai Davis: As a senior - not to brag or anything - but I mean I was the homecoming king. I had a good time, I didn't really have a lady in high school, I stayed single.

Simon: Did seniors pick on you?
Rajai Davis: I didn't have too many problems. They weren't as bad when I got there, but a few years back I heard they were worse with getting freshman.

Simon: If you could go back, would you do high school all over again?
Rajai Davis: Would I do it again? Well, that's tough because the road hadn't been easy. I had my ups and I had what I thought in my mind at the time, you know, failures. But it was for the good, so that's why I am here right now because I persevered, worked hard and never gave up.
