It’s that time again to see which high schools in Southern California have the most players on NFL 53-man rosters. For now, it’s Loyola and Long Beach Poly that win the honors with four players each. Anthony Barr (Cowboys), David Long Jr. (Rams), Coleman Shelton (Rams) and Myles Bryant (Patriots) are Cubs and Marcedes Lewis (Packers), Jack Jones (Patriots), JuJu Smith-Schuster (Chiefs) and Jayon Brown (Titans) are Jackrabbits on rosters.
Oaks Christian, Santa Ana Mater Dei, Gardena Serra, Servite, Narbonne, Buena Park and JSerra all have three players on rosters.
Of course, things can change rapidly this week as teams claim players from waivers (and if I forgot anyone, you’re welcome to email me). I counted 67 players from Southern California high schools on rosters.
