Louisiana Produces More Pro Athletes On Average Than Any Other Place In The World!
It's official if you want to play in the pros you have a better chance in Louisiana than you do anywhere else! A study looking into players in the MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLS done by Rukkus.com shows living in Louisiana gives you a better shot at playing in the pros. The study showed that 2.08 pro athletes per 100,000 people come from this great state.
While yes California, Florida and Texas produce the majority of the pro athletes their populations are well over 4-5 times that of Louisiana.
At no surprise there are currently no players in the NHL from Louisiana... Maybe The Mudbugs will change that soon!
