LOUISIANA'S NATIONAL RANK

No. 18 pro | No. 5 college | No. 7 high school

NFL

No. 18 Louisiana
<<< No. 17 North Carolina · No. 19 Minnesota>>>

From brown bags to beads, Saints fans have worn their love with pride through bad (26 losing seasons) and good (the resurgent 2006 squad that has helped with the healing after Katrina). Nine Super Bowls have been played in Louisiana and numerous hall of famers have played in the state, including quarterback Terry Bradshaw of Louisiana Tech, Mel Blount of Southern, Grambling products such as Willie Brown, Buck Buchanan, Willie Davis and Charlie Joiner plus LSU players Jim Taylor, Y.A. Tittle, Steve Van Buren.

COLLEGE

No. 5 Louisiana
<<< No. 4 Ohio · No. 6 Michigan>>>

The LSU Tigers have clawed their way to two national titles, including the 1958 team with running back Billy Cannon. The Tigers also finished No. 1 in 2003 under coach Nick Saban. Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme cut his teeth as a Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajun. Tulane history includes coach Clark Shaughnessy, who is credited as the father of the T-formation. The greatest coach, by far, however, is Eddie Robinson, whose teams won 408 games in 55 years at Grambling.

HIGH SCHOOL
No. 7 Louisiana
<<< No. 6 Pennsylvania · No. 8 Virginia>>>

Despite the carnage of Hurricane Katrina, Louisiana has rallied around its sports teams, and that includes high school football. Marshall Faulk, one of the most electrifying player of the past two decades, hails from New Orleans. Spring 2006 DI signees: 71. Fall 2006 high school football teams: 281.
