There have been countless great high school football players that have come out of the Metro Detroit area over the decades. Some had busts made in their honor while others are in the NFL or even still developing in the college ranks. But who are the best of the best?
Here is MLive’s list of the top 25 football players of all time from the Metro Detroit area.
When thinking of all the great football players, it is very difficult to even begin to make a definitive list of who are the greatest. Is it based on high school success, college success or pro accomplishments? What about championships?
In reality, it is a little bit of everything.
In this list, high school impact plays a big role. Stats certainly play a role, but so do national honors and, of course, winning. College and pro capabilities have not gone unnoticed either.
There are literally hundreds of names that can be brought up in the conversations of the greatest, so please let us know in the comments who you think is the greatest and who you think should have been on this list.
NOTE: These players are from programs within the MLive prep coverage area inside Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties.
