2015 Super Bowl Alums (National)

California leads all states with 15 players, but Texas is right behind at 14. Florida, which had the most players two years ago, checks in with nine. Illinois has one of its highest totals ever (and possibly its record) with seven. The only school in the nation with more than one alum in the game is Dominguez (Compton, Calif.).

Sports betting on the Super Bowl, of course, is almost as much of a tradition as the game itself and a great site to check out is SportsBettingAcumen.com.

Here is this year’s national/international list of Super Bowl Alumni (listed by state from where each player graduated from high school):

Seahawks QB Tarvaris Jackson (Lanier, Montgomery)
