More Multiple Pros From Same Teams

After the Chino Hills boys basketball team from 2016 made history last week with a second and third player going among the top six in the NBA Draft, we decided to look up examples from the NFL and MLB for high school teams with the most pro players on the same teams. We believe the record for the NFL is six, held by Long Beach Poly’s 2001 squad. For MLB, we can’t say for sure what the record might be, but did find one team with five and a couple of teams with four, including one of those teams in which two of the four players became Hall of Famers.
