Video: Where NFL running backs went to high school
Watch elite backs such as Todd Gurley, Leonard Fournette and Saquon Barkley star as preps.
Week 1 of the 2019 NFL season is in the books with the second week of games beginning with a Thursday night game between Carolina and Tampa Bay.
As the NFL season starts to find its groove, we take a look at the starting running backs for all 32 teams (see graphic below) and where it all began.
High school programs in Florida (7) and Georgia (4) combined to produce over one third of the Week 1 starters.
Alvin Kamara and Nick Chubb are among the biggest names from the Peach State, while Derrick Henry and Dalvin Cook are among standouts at the running back position from the Sunshine State.
Pennsylvania (3) ranked third on the list, while Texas, Ohio, Louisiana and Colorado have all produced two tail backs apiece.
