AFL/NFL 1,000 Yard Receivers State by State Rank and Overview: Installment 1

Updated on November 27, 2014
Larry Rankin profile image

Larry Rankin analyzes sports, with an especially strong penchant for statistical breakdowns.

The following database is a continued effort by the author to distinguish which U.S. states contribute the most to the game of American football. The focus of this section of the ongoing work is to determine the state by state rank for production of 1,000 yard receivers in AFL/NFL history.

To date the thousand yard receiving barrier has been broken 700 times by 269 different players. While in times past it was an epic feat, in recent years it has become much more commonplace, but regardless of current trends, the thousand yard season remains an accomplishment worthy of note.

As with the previous state by state football ranking articles this author has done, the state the player is attributed to is his state of birth. Also in keeping with the established format, there are two ranking systems: overall number of performances, in this case 1,000 yard receiving seasons, and per capita score.

In this case the per capita score is derived by dividing the state’s number of AFL/NFL 1,000 yard receivers by the state’s population, and then the zeros before the number are dropped to produce a visually more palatable score.

Below you will find the cumulative results of the data. On the left we have the per capita rank of each state. On the right we have the overall number of performances rank of each state.

The remainder of this database and subsequent links show the statistical data of every thousand yard receiver for each state in rank of per capita score.

A wonderful reference for the stats-centric sports fan

2. Mississippi

Per Capita Score: 836

1,000 Yard Performances: 25

In a per capita scoring system such as this, it doesn’t hurt to be the birth state of Jerry Rice, especially if the state in question happens to be populated by fewer than 3 million people.

Rice’s NFL record 14 thousand yard receiving performances makes up the lion’s share of Mississippi’s list of thousand yard receivers, though there are other solid contributors such as Eric Moulds and Harold Jackson.

3. Arkansas

Per Capita Score: 541

1,000 Yard Performances: 16

From second to third we have roughly a 300 point drop off. Arkansas’s most substantial contributor is Rod Smith, with 8 thousand yard performances.

It is also of note that the 1,000 yard receiving season, in a sense, was invented by an Arkansas born player. Don Hutson’s 1,211 yards receiving in 1942 marked the first time the 1,000 yard plateau was eclipsed by a receiver.

4. West Virginia

Per Capita Score: 539

1,000 Yard Performances: 10

West Virginia is fourth because they have less than 2 million people, and one of them happened to be Randy Moss.

There really isn’t much else to say here. Moss’s brilliant career and 10 thousand yard performances take West Virginia from a no-show to a fourth place contender on our per capita list.

5. Florida

Per Capita Score: 439.83

1,000 Yard Performances: 86

By the slimmest of margins, Florida comes in fifth on our per capita list. In fact, with discrepancies in census numbers, it is just as likely that South Carolina belongs in this spot as Florida.

Florida’s 86 thousand yard performances ranks first above Texas by 5 in overall number, and Florida’s list of receivers include many of the all-time greats: Michael Irvin, Isaac Bruce, and Andre Johnson just to name a few.

      I'm having a lot of fun doing these state by state ranks. There is more to come, but they are kind of labor intensive, lol.

      It really is a walk down memory lane. Most of the names I recognize, but some slipped me by altogether.

      Thanks for dropping by.

      Very interesting theory. I know you know a lot more about these things than I do. I would like to look at the statistics for myself, but I bet you're right.

      This is some great research, and a very thoughtful topic to tackle. I recognize many of these names, and many of them are names I haven't heard in awhile. The two things that jumped out to me most was that I had no idea that both Vincent Jackson and Mike Wallace were from Louisiana. I also had no idea that Marshall Faulk gained over 1,000 yards receiving as a running back. Very impressive stuff. Great detailed research again. Voted up, rated interesting.

      Larry...one more thing. I feel strongly that it's cultural because there is a direct correlation between "football" states and military enlistment. Sounds crazy, but the more I look at it, sports reflects a certain divide in our country. And now I'm getting off on a tangent, sorry. But you are right about the urban space issue. Many schools where I'm from (The Bronx/NYC metro area), struggle to keep the programs alive. Stay well.

      lions44: So nice to hear from you.

      My state by state research on football player production is by no means complete, nor will it probably ever be, but I am definitely seeing trends.

      It seems the majority of football players are coming from southern and mid-western states, at least on a per capita scale.

      This can certainly be attributed to the cultural significance of football in many regions, but in states like New York and Massachusetts, where I know football fandom is significant, the scores thus far have been poor.

      My working theory is that the majority of the population in these states is dense, and football skill requires space to develop.

      To me it has been interesting to analyze where football players come from. It gives us a snapshot of where football culture is most prominent.

      Impressive work. Great attention to detail. Contributors are very regional. Shows the cultural differences between areas of the country. Voted up and shared.

      That was actually pretty interesting, Larry. Any football fan would think so. Nice job of research.
