Want your kid to be an NFL quarterback someday? Move to Texas.

With the New York Jets benching Mark Sanchez, the number of starting QBs this weekend in the NFL that graduated from a Texas high school is 8 (which is a whopping 25% of the league!) and 9 if RGIII is able to play:

  • WAS - Robert Griffin III, Copperas Cove
  • IND - Andrew Luck, Houston (Stratford)
  • CIN - Andy Dalton, Katy
  • MIN - Christian Ponder, Colleyville (Heritage)
  • NO - Drew Brees, Austin (Westlake)
  • MIA - Ryan Tannehill, Big Spring
  • NYJ - Greg McElroy, Southlake (Carroll)
  • DET - Matthew Stafford, Dallas (Highland Park)
  • PHI - Nick Foles, Austin (Westlake)

The next highest state is California with 5, though the tell-tale statistic may be the combined winning percentage of the Texas high school graduates versus the California high school graduates: 47% (59-67) vs 56% (39-31).
