Career NFL Touchdown Leaders By State


An interesting way to track touchdown record holders is to do it by state. What players have scored more touchdowns than anyone else from their state? This is all about local bragging rights. Here is a look at some interesting facts regarding touchdown leaders by state.

-No player in NFL history has scored more touchdowns than former NFL wide receiver Jerry Rice. This would make Rice the leader in touchdowns scored from players born in Mississippi. Who has scored the fewest touchdowns but still leads their state in touchdowns scored? Phil Sarboe scored two touchdowns in his NFL career, no player from Alaska has scored more touchdowns than him.

-Players from Texas have scored more NFL touchdowns than players from any other state.

-Texas also has more football players in the Pro Football Hall of Fame than any other state. Pennsylvania is a very close second place.

-14 states in the USA have never produced a Hall of Fame player: Alaska, Arizona, Delaware, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Wyoming.
