NFL Players from West Virginia

Football Players, and athletes of all sports really, take pride in where they’re from. Whether it’s the state, city or area code – you always notice players wanting to rep their home area.

Fans tend to do the same thing. It’s always more fun to pull for a player when they’re from your home state (or even your hometown), especially when that player also happens to be playing on your favorite team.

With all that in mind, we went through and pulled the home states (or, in a few cases, countries) of every player on the 53-man active rosters for each team.

We found 6 players from the state of West Virginia
