Jamie Foxx is a bona fide triple threat: he sings, he acts and he dances. But did you know he was once an excellent athlete? Foxx attended Texas' Terrell High School, where he played on both the basketball and football teams. The actor’s goal was to one day play for the Dallas Cowboys, and was well on his way after becoming the first player in the school's history to pass for more than 1,000 yards. Foxx eventually realized his love of acting and singing, so football got put on the back burner. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)
