NEW HAMPSHIRE'S NATIONAL RANK

No. 38 pro | No. 45 college | No. 48 high school

NFL

No. 38 New Hampshire
<<< No. 37 Connecticut · No. 39 Utah>>>

If New Hampshire native and Olympic skier Bode Miller were a football player, Chad Johnson and T.O. might face fewer TV cameras. Hall of Fame tackle Ed Healey of Dartmouth became the first player sold in the NFL when the Bears purchased him from Rock Island for $100. Jerry Azumah, a standout at New Hampshire, played seven seasons as a kick returner and defensive back for the Bears before retiring last spring.

COLLEGE
No. 45 New Hampshire
<<< 44 North Dakota · No. 46 South Dakota>>>

Dartmouth won the national championship in 1925 at 8-0 and turned down a Rose Bowl invitation after an undefeated 1937 season. As recently as 1970, Dartmouth was nationally ranked, finishing No. 14 in The Associated Press poll. The Big Green also have a high nickname quotient with greats such as Murry "The Reckless Rover" Bowden, Frank "The Iron Major" Cavanaugh and Bill "Air Mail" Morton (not to mention Red, Swede and Doc). New Hampshire senior wide receiver David Ball broke Jerry Rice's record for touchdown receptions this season.

HIGH SCHOOL
No. 48 New Hampshire
<<< No. 47 Alaska · No. 49 Maine>>>

The University of New Hampshire is a top I-AA program that pulls talent from within its own borders. The Granite State would fare better if only we were talking about hockey. Spring 2006 D-I signees: two. Fall 2006 high school football teams: 51.
