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, that's 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.

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.
