Glenville Tarblooders in the NFL

There must be something in the Cuyahoga River water that produces great NFL talent… As of the 2015 NFL season, more current players are alumnus of Glenville High School in Cleveland than any other public school in the nation. Both Glenville and Miami Norland (Florida) have six NFL players. The list includes:


Ted Ginn Jr. – Carolina Panthers – Wide Receiver – Class of 2004
Glenville High School Ginn


Jayrone Elliott – Green Bay Packers – Outside Linebacker - Class of 2010


Jonathan Newsome – Indianapolis Colts – Outside Linebacker – Class of 2009


Donte Whitner – Cleveland Browns – Strong Safety – Class of 2003


Frank Clark – Seattle Seahawks – Defensive End - Class of 2011


Davon Coleman – Dallas Cowboys – Defensive Tackle - Class of 2008


The only school with more current NFL players is a private high school, St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale, Florida with 15.
