Texas football is supposedly all-encompassing I recently noted that a high school in Texas had a bigger weight room than the Redskins (was that RGIII'?).
But maybe that's a myth--note the second graphic in this post, which shows the home states of NFL players in proportion to their population. Texas is not first, nor is Florida. Instead Louisiana and Mississippi top the list with a number of other states (like Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania)in the next category. Texas is in the third category (no higher than 11th), along with such states as Connecticutt.
