Ft. Lauderdale's St. Thomas Aquinas Leads All High Schools with 3 Players Selected

FORT LAUDERDALE'S ST. THOMAS AQUINAS LEADS ALL HIGH SCHOOLS WITH THREE PLAYERS SELECTED IN 2010 NFL DRAFT;

248 SCHOOLS REPRESENTED

They range from Farrington High School in Honolulu, Hawaii to Queen's College High School in St. Michael, Barbados.

A total of 248 high schools contributed to the 255 players selected in the seven rounds of the 2010 NFL Draft on April 22-24, USA Football announced today.

St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida led all high schools with three players selected in the 2010 NFL Draft, tying them with De La Salle and Long Beach Polytechnic in California (2006) for the most players selected in a single NFL Draft in the past five years.

"We've never had this many players selected," says St. Thomas Aquinas Raiders head coach GEORGE SMITH. "We're very proud of all of them for what they've done to get themselves in this position. They had to do a lot, academically and physically."

Five schools had two players each selected. Two of those schools produced at least one first-round choice – Piscataway High in Piscataway, New Jersey (offensive tackle ANTHONY DAVIS by San Francisco and cornerback KYLE WILSON by the New York Jets) and Putnam City North in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (first overall pick quarterback SAM BRADFORD by St. Louis).

"It's rare to see this kind of thing," adds former St. Thomas Aquinas safety MAJOR WRIGHT, selected by Chicago in the third round. "This shows what type of program St. Thomas really is and how dedicated we are to what we do."

St. Thomas Aquinas has fostered camaraderie among its graduates such that many return to campus when in the Fort Lauderdale area. Wright and Dallas Cowboys sixth-round draftee tackle SAM YOUNG are among the alums that visited the campus prior to last month's NFL Draft.

"Every one of us appreciates what the school has done for us," says Young. "What makes St. Thomas special and unique is that it is home. It's not a place where you just spent a couple years."

"This is what we talked about," adds Cincinnati Bengals fourth-round defensive tackle GENO ATKINS of his St. Thomas brethren. "Going to a big-name college and then going into the league. Now it looks like our dream is coming true."

Some interesting notes on high schools in the 2010 NFL Draft:

  • In an NFL Draft rarity, the Piscataway High Chiefs program had two players drafted in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft. San Francisco selected tackle Anthony Davis 11th overall and the New York Jets chose cornerback Kyle Wilson with the 29th pick. This last occurred in 1997 when BRYANT WESTBROOK (selected fifth overall by Detroit) and MICHAEL BOOKER (drafted with the 11th overall selection by Atlanta) from El Camino High in Oceanside, California were both selected in the first round of the same draft.

This is also the first instance since Helix High in La Mesa, California (ALEX SMITH in 2005 and REGGIE BUSH in 2006) that one school has had former players picked in the first round of the NFL Draft in consecutive seasons. Former Piscataway High defensive back MALCOLM JENKINS was picked 12th overall in 2009 by the New Orleans Saints. The trio of Davis, Jenkins and Wilson played together for Piscataway's varsity team in 2004.

"I'm not shocked by it, but I know it's unique," says Davis. "If you would've told me back then we'd all be first-rounders, I wouldn't have doubted it."

  • Thirty-six states and the District of Columbia, as well as Barbados, had at least one player drafted.
  • For the fourth time in the past five seasons, at least one player who attended high school outside of the United States was selected in the NFL Draft. Baltimore selected tackle RAMON HAREWOOD from St. Michael, Barbados in the sixth round of the 2010 Draft. In 2009,SEBASTIAN VOLLMER(New England/2) became the first European-trained (Germany) player to be drafted by an NFL club. Vollmer was joined by VAUGHN MARTIN (San Diego/4) from London, Ontario, Canada as foreign high schoolers selected. In 2006 and 2007, four combined players from high schools in American Samoa were selected by NFL clubs.
  • Florida and Texas led all states with five first-round selections in the 2010 NFL Draft. California, Georgia, New Jersey and Oklahoma followed with three players selected and Pennsylvania also had multiple players selected.
  • Florida (34) replaced Texas (26) for the most drafted players in 2010 by adding 15 players from their 2009 total (19).
  • Cleveland Browns third-round draftee guard SHAWN LAUVAO is one of the three players hailing from Hawaii (KALUKA MAIAVA/4 in 2009; DAVID VEIKUNE/2 in 2009) drafted by the Browns in the past two seasons. When he was only 16, Lauvao placed second in the Hawaii Strong Man Competition after winning the 2005 Hawaii's Strongest Teen Competition. The Browns hope he will also prove strong enough to brave the transition to the cold weather.
