    Hard to believe, Tennessee's had 2-3 generations of Flowerses & Colquitts that had to be Heismanworthy. Now they have or had a Clausen QB from that extended FB family. Back in the day only the press voted for the Heisman, most of the press & most of the Heisman winners were concentrated in the East Coast & Midwest, coincidence? IDTS.

    And Texas, not Pennsylvania, is the beast of HS football, best in quality & quantity of blue chip recruiters. Why else do you find Texans on ACC, Big East & Pac 10 squads? MWC, WAC & even the SEC too -- note that Matt Stafford from UGA & Bama's new QB McElroy both from the same Houston HS -- ? How many players from PA in those non-Big East or ACC Conferences? not so much.

    Granted, Texas is about 3 times bigger in size & population (of any other state not named California) & has a 5-tiered HS system to accommodate its several hundred thousand HS players, where HS football is an secular religion & an iconic institution, see Friday Night Lights. With recruiting & technology at such a high level now the big BCS programs recruit pretty much the whole country, not too many exclusively regional or instate recruiting programs in the BCS now, none anymore in the top 10, cause & effect at work there.
    If we go all-time best, Pennsylvania wins. Today, obviously not, but all-time, yes.

      State: Mississippi
      Best Player to ever play in the State: 3 way tie: Favre, Sweetness, Rice
      Best Team to ever play in the State: 1959-1962 Ole Miss Rebels
      Best Coach to ever coach in the State: Johnny Vaught
      Any other random facts: Mississippi natives have at least held arguably the most important records in football. 1)Favre: yardage/touchdowns 2)Payton: former all time rushing yardage leader 3)Rice: everything involved with receiving a football professionally.

      I had a dream that Brady Quinn was rollin' with Omarosa in a 1987 LeSabre

            When you're talking De La Salle football, you can't forget about Demontae Fitzgerald.

                  Looking forward to seeing Barry Sanders Jr this year. Like a 20-30 minute drive to Herritage Hall...want to see him before he gets too big time.
