New Report Names the Cowboy State’s Favorite NFL Player
When it comes to professional football, who's jersey would sell out in the state of Wyoming?
Can you smell it? Football season is here. College football just got underway last night (Aug. 31) and the NFL regular season is right around the corner. This is, by far, my favorite time of the year. It's also the time of year when I seem to be at my heaviest. I guess sitting at home with a platter of wings and fries watching football all day isn't conducive to a fit physique.
Anywho... Who's ready for some football?!
It's finally time to cheer on our favorite NFL team and/or player. That favorite player can vary from state to state. Thanks to Frontier Communications and Cable TV, we now know the top player in the Cowboy State. Before we get to that, we may want to take a look at where they got this information.
Yep. The two first took the top 100 players in the league and looked at those who were Googled the most in each state. For Wyoming, that's Khalil Mack, defensive end for the Oakland Raiders. Ok, so he doesn't play for Denver, nor one of the most popular teams out there, but apparently we are just a tiny bit obsessed with him. He was named the 2016 Defensive Player of the Year and he did help the Raiders punch their ticket to the postseason last year for the first time since 2002.
Khalil was also tied for the most searched-for player in four other states.
If you want to change this, I suggest searching for your favorite players on a regular basis... You know, just to check in.
