Pensacola: Trailblazer in production of football players

Football.com is singing the praises of this area’s production of college and pro football players.

A glance at the 2014 preseason rosters of the Southeastern Conference and the four closest FBS schools, Southern Mississippi, South Alabama, Troy (Ala.) and Florida State shows the area well represented.

Fifteen players from Pensacola are listed. That number more than doubles when the number from the panhandle (16) is added. Toss in another 13 from the Eastern Shore, which features Daphne, Spanish Fort, Fairhope and Foley. Two more come from Alabama towns located on the line just outside Escambia County.
