Twelve former San Diego Section stars made the 32-team NFL rosters of 1,693 players at the start of the 2017 season.
Thirteen made the list in 2016 and 15 in 2015.
Helix was one of 40 schools with 3 players active. St. Thomas Aquinas of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, had 12, followed by Long Beach Poly with 7, two schools with 6, and six with 5.
Florida led all schools with 212 players, followed by California (191), Texas (179), and Georgia 120. Miami led by city with 25. Houston (17), and Fort Lauderdale (15) rank second and third.
The NFL incorrectly listed five players as having attended either San Marcos, Serra, or Cathedral from the San Diego Section. Those players were from Santa Barbara San Marcos, Gardena Serra, and Los Angeles Cathderal.
