    The whole of social media has really embraced Throwback Thursday. Each week, feeds on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are awash with photos that are high on nostalgia and low on clarity. 

    Nothing says #TBT like a ridiculously blurry high school yearbook picture. 

    It’s a weekly event we’ve embraced here at Bleacher Report, if only on a semi-weekly basis, usually with a different theme. Since kids are all heading back to school around now, this week we’ve got some of the best school pictures posted by athletes. 

    25 of them, to be exact.
