The NFL has one of the most exclusive Hall of Fames in all of sports. It is so difficult to get in that, many times, players and coaches must wait for a senior committee to vote on their rightful place in the Hall of Fame. This was the case of former NFL head coach Dick Vermeil, who was named a senior finalist for the Hall of Fame. Earlier in February 2022, Coach was announced at the NFL Honors Event that he had been selected for induction to the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2022.

If you’re going to be the featured running back in an offense led by future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees, you better be something special. Alvin Kamara, having completed just two seasons in the NFL, has captivated Who Dat Nation and made the Superdome come alive. Expectations are running high down in the Bayou and that is largely due to the impressive Saints offense.
At Norcross High School in Georgia, people knew Kamara was destined for great things. He was the Class 6A player of the year and was named Georgia Mr. Football by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

When you intercept Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, you count yourself fortunate. When you intercept him twice in 14 seconds, you go to the Pro Bowl and sign a contract making you the highest-paid cornerback in the league. We’re talking about Xavien Howard, and he’s one of the stars of the Miami Dolphins.
Howard grew up in Houston in the Fifth Ward district, a pretty tough neighborhood. However, he excelled on the football field for Wheatley High School, playing both cornerback as well as quarterback. Howard’s stint at Baylor University coincided with one of the most successful stretches the football program had seen.

Wisconsin Badger fans had plenty of reason to “jump around” when Melvin Gordon was on the field as the team’s star running back. In 2014, he was only 41 yards shy of breaking Barry Sanders’ all-time single-season rushing record. That season, he finished second in the Heisman Trophy voting, losing to Marcus Mariota. The Badger faithful know that they were blessed to have a talent like Gordon grace Camp Randall stadium for four years.
Actually, the roots of greatness for Gordon were sown in his hometown of Kenosha. His mother, Carmen, never missed a single game and would frequently drive Gordon to football camps as far away as Alabama.

Kramer is recognized as one of the toughest Packers to ever play the game.
From his birthplace in Jordan, Montana, to an early childhood in Utah, then to Idaho for middle and high school, Kramer moved around a lot but was definitely a standout athlete at Sandpoint High School, doing well enough to earn a scholarship to the University of Idaho.

How does a kid, born and raised in California, make their way to the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field for potential greatness as a Green Bay Packer? If you’re Kenny Clark, the answer is simple: be a four star recruit out of Wilmer Amina Carter High School in Rialto, CA as a nose tackle, go to UCLA and be one of the best players in the Pac-12, then get drafted by the Packers. Easy, right?
Actually, Kenny Clark has worked very hard to get where he’s at. As one of the best high school football players in the West (and a three time letterman in wrestling, as well), Clark wanted to stay in California for school. UCLA was an obvious choice, and as a Bruin, Clark performed.
