Video: Timpview, UT @ Alta, UT
See Timpview's Bronson Kaufusi, now of the Baltimore Ravens, in action as a prep.
Who's got the ultimate bragging rights when it comes to sending players to the NFL from the high school ranks in Utah?
find out, MaxPreps and Lateral Sports teamed up and found the alma
mater of every player on an NFL roster as of opening day (we included
suspended and injured reserve players). Then we broke it all down by
state and came up with the table below.
You will find that Utah has sent 16 players to the league this season, and that Timpview leads the way with three NFL players.
Want some more fun facts? How about these:
- Timpview has three players, and two other schools have multiple alums in the NFL. Skyline and Highland also have two each, representing all the multiple-player schools.
- Timpview has Bronson Kaufusi and Xavier Su'a Filo on the 2007 and 2008 teams. That pair of future NFL players led the team to undefeated records (13-0) and state titles in each season.
- Utah clearly breeds linemen. Thirteen of the sixteen players from Utah high schools play on the offensive or defensive lines. Two are linebackers and one is a running back.
- The east coast is not fond of Utah players. None of the teams from the eastern divisions of the AFC and NFC have Utah players.
