Are California's prep athletes to the best in the nation? Well, yes, absolutely

November 22, 2009

There is a reason why California is always the top-producing state in the nation for the athletic talent. For this reason, a population would be 36 + million people, the highest in the nation.

If you know that Texas is the second largest state in the nation with 24 million, and New York with 19 million, yes, you get the point.

So, how big is 39 million people in California? Well, you take the combined population of Wyoming, Vermont, North Dakota,Alaska, South Dakota, Delaware, Montana, Rhode Iceland, Hawaii, New Hampshire, Maine, Idaho, Nebraska, West Virginia, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Kansas, Arkansas, Mississippi and Iowa, and the result is still less than a combined state + than 36 million people in California.

In other words, the population of the 21 states no more than the population of California.

All this makes the California talent pool the best of the best, if not before the rest in any event. Undershow the 49 boys and girls events, California is the current national leader in 12 (24%) and 2 new American high school record champion this season.
