NFL DRAFT DIAMONDS

Did you know: There are over 100 small schoolers in the Pro Football Hall of Fame (Complete List)

I thought this was an interesting fact for all you small school football players out there.  I don’t know how many small schoolers I have talked to that told me the path is so hard, people over look you, they don’t take small schoolers serious because they don’t play the USC’s and Texas’ of the world.  Well guess what small schoolers, over 100 players out of the 285 players in the Hall of Fame are from small schools.  It doesn ‘t matter where you are from, or where you go to school, if you can play you can play.  Use this as motivation…..
