It’s been said countless times, but it’s true: high school football is different in Texas. It’s way more intense than anywhere else in the country even to the point that it resembles a sub-collegiate level of football to the fine folks in the Lone Star State. Want proof? On average, at least 25 percent of the starting quarterbacks in the NFL each year played their high school ball in Texas. Put simply, pro-caliber signal-callers are bred in Texas better than they are in any of the other 49 states.
