The picture dates from 1972, when Prince was on the basketball team at Bryant Junior High. Who could have guessed the greatness he would go on to achieve? Anyone who saw that sweet afro, that's who. Jany also provided this newspaper clipping from the Tribune's archives, detailing Prince's athletic accomplishments:

Here's the full quote:

“Prince was an excellent player; he was like the sixth or seventh man," said Richard Robinson, his basketball coach. “He was an excellent ball handler, a good shooter and very short (5 foot 2). Probably with a different group of people he would have been a starter. But, as they turned out, they were probably the best all team that ever came along at Central. I knew he wanted to be starting and felt he should be starting. He was unhappy and he expressed that many, many times."
