    A South Dakota high school player's name is K.J. Bad Wound


    I understand this is likely an Indian name. But the lead and headline possibilities might be endless.

    In the youth rodeo world, there's a family in Nebraska (I think) with the last name Boots. So they named all their kids after boot companies. Justin Boots, Tony Lama Boots, etc. Thankfully, no kid named Ariat as far as I know.

    Also knew kid in youth rodeo named National Champion. Tough name to live up to when you're placing 50th of 100 kids.

    Sounds like a perfect name for a kid who's involved with karate tournaments.

    Two memorable ones from a former stop.

    Same North Alabama 1A school - think they may have been football teammates at one point.

    Mona Leisia Carter (a guy) and Tecumseh Mayes (also a guy). The second 'i' in Carter's first name is silent. Honest.
