Which High School Produces Most NFL Players – 2019

Which high school produces most NFL players / via NFL

Saint Thomas Aquinas High School produced the most NFL players on rosters on NFL Kickoff Weekend, according to a census report from the league offices. The census also tells us that Florida and California still produce the most NFL players, no shock there, but Alabama is now the leader in NFL players per capita, which comes out to 1 NFL player per 74,683 people.

Dig into the numbers and then try to figure out why colleges spend their recruiting budgets in California and Florida. Should be pretty obvious after you finish looking through these numbers.
